The Four C's
A diamond’s cut is not to be confused with it’s shape. It refers to both the outline shape and the proportions of the diamond. A diamond’s proportions affect it’s light performance which in turn determines it’s overall appearance and beauty.
The GIA colour scale ranges from D to Z and represents how noticeable colour (usually a yellow or brown tone) is in a diamond.
Inclusions are a natural characteristic found in virtually all diamonds. The clarity grade reflects the impact of the inclusion on the appearance of a diamond.
The carat refers to the weight of a diamond, which correlates very closely to a diamond’s size.
