The Four C's Of Diamonds

When it comes to diamonds, there are four defining factors that determine its quality: Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat. These characteristics will directly impact the lustre, sparkle and overall look of your diamond.

Cut: A diamond’s cut refers to the balance of proportion, polish and symmetry to maximise the stone’s light performance. This is arguably the most important of the four C's, as the cut has the most significant effect on the diamonds appearance and sparkle.

Colour: This refers to the natural colour or lack of colour visible within a diamond. Diamond colour is graded of from D, colourless and crisp white, to J, some colour detected by an expert gemologist.

Clarity: Clarity refers to how clear a diamond is, grading its purity according to the number of imperfections or inclusions present within the stone. 

Carat: Carat (ct.) refers to the specialised unit of measurement used to weigh a diamond and other gemstones.
