Various characteristics of diamonds are graded and categorized by the diamond industry. Learning about diamonds is first learning about the "four C's" of diamonds which are considered the most important grades and categories:

  • Cut
  • Clarity
  • Color
  • Carat Weight

These are the criteria jewelers use when grading diamonds, and they're the ones you will need to understand to buy the right diamond for you

Cut

Cut is probably the most important, and most challenging, of the four Cs to understand. The brilliance of a diamond depends heavily on cut.

Clarity

Most diamonds contain some inner flaws, or inclusions, that occur during the formation process. The visibility, number and size of these inclusions determine what is called the clarity of a diamond. Diamonds that are clear create more brilliance, and thus are more highly prized, and priced.

Color

Colorless diamond are the most desirable since they allow the most refraction of light (sparkle). Off white diamonds absorb light, inhibiting brilliance.

Carat Weight

A carat is the unit by which a diamond is measured. Becasue large diamonds are found less commonly than small diamonds, the price of a diamond rises exponentionaly to its size.
