the 4 c s determine diamond grade value
The 4 C’s Determine Diamond Grade Value
  • Cut
    • Refers to a diamond’s reflective qualities, new its shape
    • Angles and number of facets determine how diamond reflects light
      • In well-cut diamonds, light enters from the top, reflects from one side to the other and exits out the top.
      • In poorly cut diamonds , light enters from the top and “leaks” out the bottom.
  • Clarity
    • Refers to a diamond’s color (or inclusions)
      • Internal air bubbles
      • Surface cracks
    • Diamonds range from flawless (no inclusions) to include 3 (flaws visible to the naked eye)
  • Color
    • Refers to a diamond’s color
      • Colorless is most valuable , reflecting the most light
    • Graded on alphabetical scale from “D” (Colorless) to “Z” (traces of yellow or brown)
      • Fancy color diamonds do not color this rule (i.e., blue, yellow, pink diamonds)
  • Carat
    • Refers to the unit of weight by which a diamond is measured
    • The greater the carat weight, the more expensive the diamond ( all other characteristics being equal.
