Below is a list of terms that are used when grading diamonds. Knowing about each diamond grading variable is very helpful.

Diamond Color:
The color of a diamond refers to the tone and saturation of color, or the depth of color in a diamond. The color of a diamond can range from colorless to a yellow or brown hue. A more colorless diamond is rarer and more valuable because it appears white and brighter to the eye.

Diamond Clarity:
Clarity describes the presence or absence of inclusions within the diamond and blemishes on its surface. These slight “birthmarks of nature” make every diamond quite unique. However, they do affect the beauty and value of the diamond. These natural birthmarks are often referred to as inclusions. The fewer inclusions a diamond has the more rare and valuable it is. Diamonds which contain numerous inclusions are less brilliant because inclusions interfere with light passing through the diamond.

Diamond Carat:
A carat is a unit of weight for diamonds and other gems. The weight of a diamond is numerically expressed in carats. Diamond weight is subdivided further into smaller units commonly referred to as points.

Diamond Cut:
The Cut Of A Diamond Is The Most Important Element Of Diamond Beauty. A diamond cut constitutes a more or less symmetrical arrangement of facets which together modify the shape and appearance of a diamond crystal. The choice of diamond cut is often decided by the original shape of the rough stone, location of internal flaws or inclusions and the preservation of carat weight.

So, find a stunning diamond solitaire engagement or wedding ring you’ll be happy to wear forever.
