Introduction to Diamond Terms
The 4 C's, as
Cut, Clarity, Carat and Color.
Learn the Basic Descriptions about Diamonds.
The Cut of a Diamond
Of the 4 C's of Diamond ratings,
the Cut is considered the most critical.
The sparkle and brilliance of a Diamond is
all in how it's Cut, it is not just about the shape.
The Cut refers not only to the shape of a Diamond, but more importantly to its proportions, symmetry and polish.
There are two things to know about the quality of the Cut:
The better the proportion of the Diamonds, the better the light reflection.
The most spectacular, and costly, Diamonds are the ones that are more perfectly proportioned.
Most Diamonds are available in three basic styles:
Brilliant-Cut Diamonds contain
numerous facets that reflect light.
This cut provides maximized light through
the top of the Diamond.
Brilliant Cut Diamonds include round, oval, pear, heart and marquise shapes.
Step-Cut Diamonds feature rows of facets positioned in a step-like fashion.
Most Step-Cut Diamonds have four sides and a rectangular shape, such as Emerald-Cut and Baguette.
Diamonds combine the qualities of the brilliant and step-cuts.
The most popular
example is the princess-cut (or radiant cut),
although cushion-cut Diamonds are experiencing a revival in popularity.
Here are some of the most popular shapes of Cut Diamonds:
The most popular Diamond Cut for studs is the round brilliant, which has 58 facets and reflects the most sparkle of any cut.
If you are interested in a different type of cut, consider the Princess, Emerald, and Asscher cuts.
While there are other shapes, these are the most sought after. Round Brilliant Diamonds are by far the favorites.
A Diamonds body
color (from colorless to yellow) is determined by a grading system created by
the Gemological Institute of America's color scale.
Like the other 4Cs, color is a matter of preference.
You may be attracted to colorless Diamonds
for the breath taking purity and radiance,
while others prefer slightly yellow Diamonds for a warmer look.
Diamond color will
never change, but over time, a Diamond's setting can often influence its
Gems are rated on a color scale of D through Z.
D, E and F's are considered the highest quality Diamonds.
G, H, I, J, K Diamonds all can display fiery flashy attractive brilliance and
to the untrained eye, it's almost impossible to distinguish the shade variations of Diamonds. Your Diamond Purchase will include a rating card.
Diamond Weight in Carats
A carat is a unit of measure for Diamond weight
and is evaluated on a point system.
One carat is equivalent to 100 points; a half-carat Diamond is 50 points and so on.
One carat also equals 200 milligrams, and 142 carats equal one ounce.
Although Diamonds come in many weights,
one-carat Diamonds are found in nature
less often than smaller Diamonds and are therefore much more expensive.
For this reason, a one-carat Diamond costs far more than two half-carat Diamonds of the same cut,
color and clarity.
Larger diamonds which are rarer
than smaller ones, are not simply priced proportionately more.
rarity, a two-carat diamond, for example,
will cost substantially more than two one-carat stones of equal quality.
Diamonds also come in
Earrings or other pieces of jewelry that have more
than one Diamond,
the total weight of the gems is often given as Total Carat Weight (TCW) or total weight (TW)
Clarity refers to
the flaws in a Diamond.
The clarity rating refers to the size,
placement of these flaws, or blemishes,
usually referred to as "inclusions".
Some Diamonds have no flaws or very few,
which can only
be seen under magnification,
and others have many flaws that are noticeable without magnification.
Many inclusions are difficult to see with the naked eye
These inclusions are what make each Diamond
The least flawed Diamonds are the most valuable
and the completely flawless Diamonds are very rare and costly.
Even Diamonds with inclusions
and blemishes can be among the most beautiful,
especially those with good color
