Diamonds The 4 C’s:
The overall cut grade given to a diamond is based on how the proportions of the diamond affect the face up appearance of your diamond i.e. what determines the Fire, Scintillation, & Brilliance.
The diamond color assessment of most gem-quality diamonds is based on the absence of color and is determined by comparing against a set of master stones.
A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond is void of color, like a drop of pure water, which results in having a higher value. Colors range from D-Z, but can also be yellow or a tinge of pink, blue, green, or orange.
Natural diamonds are the result of carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep in the earth. This process can result in a variety of internal characteristics called inclusions and external characteristics called blemishes.
Evaluating diamond clarity involves determining the number, size, relief, nature, and position of these characteristics, as well as how these affect the overall appearance of the stone. While no diamond is perfectly pure, the closer it comes, the higher its value.
Below is the GIA Diamond Clarity Scale:
- Flawless (FL)
No inclusions and no blemishes visible under 10x magnification
- Internally Flawless (IF)
No inclusions visible under 10x magnification
- Very, Very Slightly Included (VVS1 and VVS2)
Inclusions so slight they are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification
- Very Slightly Included (VS1 and VS2)
Inclusions are observed with effort under 10x magnification, but can be characterized as minor
- Slightly Included (SI1 and SI2)
Inclusions are noticeable under 10x magnification
- Included (I1, I2, and I3)
Inclusions are obvious under 10x magnification which may affect transparency and brilliance
The carat weight of your diamond is measured using state-of the art scales to ensure precision and accuracy. If you have a certificate or diamond appraisal, it will be listed. Typical Carat weights vary from 0.4 to 10.00.
Fun Fact: Did you know diamonds are the hardest naturally occurring substance found on Earth, it is 58x harder than any other naturally occurring substance!!!
