Clear A Diamond

Before we talk about the next 4C’s of a Diamonds, let’s clear the first one. How can you choose a diamond if you’re not sure if the diamond is clear? In simple terms, a clear diamond is one that is free of any inclusions. Intrusive inclusions, like milky or cloudy areas in the diamond, can have a detrimental impact on the price of a diamond. Luckily, most modern day labs are equipped to detect even the smallest of inclusions. The second thing you need to know about clear diamonds is that they are not the same as colorless diamonds. The majority of diamonds are graded as “colorless,” while a percentage of diamonds are graded as “very light gray,” “gray,” or “ grayish white.” A very light gray diamond is extremely light in color; a gray diamond has a light color tone; and a grayish white diamond has a light appearance but little clarity. If you’re looking for a diamond that’s 100% clear, make sure it’s graded as “clear.”

Cut A Diamond

If you’re looking for a round diamond or princess cut, we have the perfect place. What is a cut? Generally speaking, it can refer to the proportions of diamonds. If your diamond has high pavé (dots), then it may require more prongs than that of one with low pavé. High-cut diamonds sit lower on the finger than low-cuts do and will be brighter in their scintillation, sparkle and fire.

Carat A Diamond

A diamond’s carat weight doesn’t determine its price. Even a smaller diamond could be more expensive than a larger one, based on cut and quality.

Colour A Diamond

Next, let’s talk about color. The majority of diamonds are graded as colorless, but a small percentage of them fall into a range that includes very light gray, gray, and grayish white.Look for a diamond that’s 100% clear and make sure it’s graded as “clear”. Don’t worry about colour. The lower the grade, the higher the price.
