Cut

Clarity

Carat

Color

A diamond’s cut is not only about its shape, but how effectively it can return light back to the eye. A well-cut diamond will appear very brilliant; while more poorly cut stones can sometimes appear dark and lifeless, regardless of the color or the diamond’s clarity. Clarity refers to the presence and area of impurities, blemishes or other identifying characteristics within a diamond. Clarity characteristics are what make every diamond completely unique. There are no two diamonds that will have exactly the same inclusions in the same location. Carat is a term that refers to the weight of a diamond. Before the twentieth century, diamonds were measured by using the carob seed that is small and uniform and served as a perfect counter weight to the diamond. It is those original carob seeds which are the origin. When shopping for a diamond, it is generally preferred to have the least amount of color possible. Diamond color is divided into five broad categories. Diamonds that are of the very highest purity are totally colorless, and appear a bright white.
