Diamond Buying Guide | The Four Cs of Diamonds: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat Weight
Fine diamonds are among the most coveted if all gems. Their value however, differs widely from one diamond to another. Experts evaluate every diamond for rarity and beauty using four primary guidelines. These are called the Four Cs, Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat Weight. When you think of the cut, you probably think of the shape of the diamond. You are partially correct. While cut does refer to shape, it also refers to the proportions of how the diamond is actually cut. Diamonds are cute into many different shapes, reflection not only popular taste but the proportions and the quality of the rough diamond. The most popular shapes include Round, Oval, Square, Princess, Emerald, Baguette and Marquise cut. Many specialty shapes are also available. With the exception of fancy color diamonds, the most valuable diamonds are those with the least color. The color scale for transparent diamonds goes from D-F (colorless), G-J (near colorless), K-M (faint yellow), to Z (light yellow). Completely colorless diamonds are rare. When diamonds are formed with traces of other minerals, rare and beautiful colors can result. These "fancy" colors range from blue and brilliant yellow to red, brown, pale green, pink and violet. Because of their rarity, colored diamonds are highly desirable and may be quite valuable. A diamond's clarity is measured by the existence, or the absence, of visible flaws. Tiny surface blemishes or internal inclusions, even those seen only under magnification with a 10x jeweler's loupe can alter the brilliance of the diamond and thus affect its value. Clarity levels begin with Flawless (FL & IF) followed by Very Very Slight (VVS1 & 2), Very Slight (VS1 & 2), Slightly Included (SI1 & 2), and included (I1, 2, & 3). The size of a diamond is measured, not by its dimensions, but by weight. Diamonds of equal weight may appear slightly different in size, depending on their depths and proportions.
