Discover the Four C's of Diamonds
Carat • Color • Clarity • Cut
Carat is the most well-known of the Four C's and refers to the diamond's weight. One carat is equivalent to 200 milligrams. The carat weight has a direct impact on a diamond's size and, to some extent, its price. Larger diamonds are generally more valuable, but the other C's also greatly affect a diamond's quality. It's important to note that two diamonds of the same carat weight can differ significantly in terms of overall value based on their color, clarity, and cut.

Diamonds come in a range of colors, but the less color a diamond exhibits, the more valuable it typically is. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) grades diamond color on a scale from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow or brown). Truly colorless diamonds are rare and highly prized. The presence of even subtle color can significantly affect a diamond's appearance and value. The choice of diamond color often depends on personal preference, but it's important to consider the setting and metal color as they can influence the perception of a diamond's hue.

Clarity measures the presence of internal and external imperfections, known as inclusions and blemishes, in a diamond. These natural features formed during the diamond's creation process and are like the diamond's unique birthmarks. The GIA provides clarity grades from Flawless (no inclusions or blemishes visible under 10x magnification) to Included (inclusions and/or blemishes visible to the naked eye). Diamonds with higher clarity grades are rarer and more valuable. However, many inclusions are microscopic and do not impact a diamond's beauty.

The cut is perhaps the most critical of the Four C's as it directly affects a diamond's sparkle and overall visual appeal. A well-cut diamond will reflect light in a way that maximizes its brilliance, fire, and scintillation. The GIA grades diamond cut from Excellent to Poor, taking into account factors like proportions, symmetry, and polish. A well-cut diamond can make a smaller carat diamond appear larger and more dazzling than a larger one with a poor cut.
