5Cs of Perfect Diamonds

Diamonds are a constant source of joy for all. Despite what some sales clerk would like you to believe, it is not too difficult to buy the best rock for your budget. The world makes a lot out of diamonds and these are among the cost priciest things known to man. Here are 5 points that make diamonds what they are – special.

The size of a diamond is measured in carats. The larger the size the bigger will be its carat number. A diamond is measured in 100 points. For instance a diamond weighing 50 points is .50 carat. This is the least important of all parameters and hence gets it out of the way as soon as possible. Two diamonds of the same carat number can have different price/value depending on its cut and clarity.

How a diamond is cut determines the stone’s reflective qualities and directly influences its value. A diamond's cut affects its brilliance. The better the cut, the brighter the diamond appears. Always look for the cuts on the rock because it is among the most important things to consider when buying a diamond.

Imperfections in a diamond make it special, but a lot of them lower the value. In fact, a diamond with fewer imperfections costs lower than one with a lot of them. 

Completely white diamonds are very rare. Almost every diamond has some special characteristic blemishes that make the rock disperse light interestingly. Some have very unique colors in them which can be observed by putting it against a white surface

A certified diamond is a stone that has been submitted to either EGL or GIA for quality analysis.  The lab grades the color and clarity and takes detailed measurements of the diamond. Always look for diamond Jewellery that have been tested and approved by a trusted agency.
