Every diamond holds unique characteristics that are classified using the 4 C's.
Judging the cut of a diamond has less to do with shape and more to do with how well it reflects light. It's the most important of the 4C's, as diamond cut quality can affect price by over 40%! A diamond that is properly cut allows for the greatest amount of light to be reflected for maximum brilliance. Our diamonds are so beautifully cut that they reflect up to 93% of incoming light. Average ones don't even come close.
Diamond color refers to the lack of color. Diamonds are found in a variety of hues, ranging from yellow or brown to no color at all, which is the rarest.
GIA's diamond color grading scale is the industry's most widely accepted. This scale begins with a grade of D, which means the diamond is as colorless as possible. The presence of color increases slightly all the way to a grade of Z. While differences in color may not be obvious to the untrained eye, the price will reflect it.
Clarity refers to the absence of inclusions (internal imperfections) and blemishes (external imperfections). Because diamonds are the result of carbon under pressure, this will naturally cause such imperfections. This means the closer a diamond is to perfection, the rarer and more valuable it is.
Carat refers to the weight of a diamond. In general, a diamond will increase in price as its carat weight increases because heavier diamonds aren't as common.
