The 4 C's of a Diamond

Color of a Diamond

Diamonds in the D-to-Z color range are valued by how closely they approach colorlessness – the less color, the higher their value.

Carat weight of a Diamond

Diamonds and gemstones are weighed in metric carats: one carat is equal to 0.2 grams, about the weight of a paperclip.

Cut of a Diamond

The sparkle and brilliance of a diamond depends more on its cut than anything else.

Clarity of a Diamond

The absence of inclusions and blemishes makes a diamond rare and affects value.
