The 4 C's of Diamonds

Diamonds vary in value and quality. Experts use the 4 C's to evaluate diamonds for their true value. CUT, COLOR, CLARITY, and CARAT WEIGHT is the determining factor in a diamond's value, rarity, and beauty.

CUT - The cut of a diamond is not only the shape, it is also the way it is cut from a rough diamond. The cut shows the facets which reflect light bringing more brilliance to the stone.

COLOR - Aside from fancy colored diamonds, transparency is best in clear diamonds (near colorless).  The quality of a diamond based on color run drom D through Z. They are usually by range. D is colorless, thereby the best in color. Moving closer toward Z the diamond picks up a yellow color.

CLARITY - Clarity is based on the visibility of flaws or inclusions. Flaws unseen to the naked eye may be seem with a jeweler's loupe. Flaws may affect the brilliance of the stone and the value.  A scale exits for determining clarity.  FL is flawless
