Diamond Education Center - The Diamond 4C's and So Much More!
Shopping for a diamond can be a very challenging endeavor. We have assembled a rich collection of solid information to help make the process of getting up to speed easy and fun. Our hope is that your diamond journey will be an interesting and pleasurable one.
For those new to the subject of diamonds there are a number of basic factors to become familiar with and they all play a part in determining the appearance and cost of the gem. And since each diamond is different in one or more respects, each diamond being considered must be assessed comprehensively so that comparisons between diamonds can be done intelligently. For the more experienced consumer we offer very in-depth information on all aspects of diamonds and diamond grading. So whether you are already a knowledgeable diamond enthusiast or just starting out, we have the information that will be useful to you.
For a basic overview of the subject you can refer to our diamond buying guide
which is a good primer on the diamond 4Cs. From there you can click links to higher level information such as our series of articles on diamond grading
at the American Gem Society Laboratories (AGSL). These articles are the result of collaboration between Whiteflash and AGSL.
Since diamond cut quality and light performance are areas of specialization for Whiteflash you will find various articles on Diamond Cut grading, Ideal Cut diamonds, Hearts and Arrows diamonds, AGS vs GIA
