Carat

The weight of a diamond is measured in carats (ct.). Each carat is divided into 100 points. For example: 1ct.= 100 points, 1/2 ct. = 50 points. The Carat Weight alone is almost meaningless unless you also consider the cut, clarity and color of the diamond. A large diamond is not very valuable if it lacks brilliance, fire and high-grade color. Since larger stones are rarer than smaller ones, diamond value rises exponentially with carat weight. Therefore, a diamond weighing 3.0 carats, will always be worth more than three 1.0 carat stones of the same quality. No two diamonds are exactly alike, and you must weigh all of the factors - color, cut, clarity and carat weight - when making your diamond buying decision.

Shape

  • round
  • oval
  • pear
  • marquise
  • heart
  • emerald
  • princess
  • asscher
  • cushion

The Round Brilliant cut is the most popular diamond shape today. Other popular fancy shapes include Princess, Emerald, Oval, Pear, Marquise, Heart, Radiant, Cushion and Asscher. In choosing a diamond shape, your personal preference will always be the deciding factor.

Color

  • colorless
  • near colorless
  • slightly tinted
  • very-light-yellow
  • light yellow-yellow

Depending on the stone's size, a single increase in Color grade can boost the value of a diamond by thousands of dollars per carat. A traditional engagement diamond is usually colorless or near-colorless. The GIA color scale is the most widely used diamond color-grading system in the United States and around the world. Diamonds of color grade D are very rare, and extremely valuable.

clarity

  • fl - if
  • vvs1 - vvs2
  • vs1 - vs2
  • sl1 - sl2
  • l1
  • l2 - l3
  • FL-IF - Flawless or Internally Flawless. No internal inclusions.
  • VVS1-VVS2 - Very Very Small inclusions. Very difficult to detect under 1ox magnification.
  • VS1-VS2 - Very Small inclusions. Can be seen under 1ox magnification and in some cases to the naked eye.
  • SI1-SI2 - Small inclusions. Can be seen under 1ox magnification and may be visible to the naked eye.
  • I1 -I2-I3 - Imperfect. Inclusions are visible under 1ox magnification and in most cases to the naked eye.

The Clarity of a diamond is based on the number, location, size, and type of inclusions found in the stone. An inclusion is an imperfection or trace mineral in the stone that is visible under the magnification of a jeweler's loupe. The fewer inclusions the diamond has; the clearer, more brilliant and more expensive the diamond will be. A 'Flawless' diamond is one that has no inclusions and is extremely rare and valuable.

Cut

The Cut grade is an indicator of a diamond's brilliance, or how it interacts with the light around it. A diamond's interaction with light, its overall proportions and finish are all factors that determine the cut grade. A diamond with a high cut grade will have excellent brilliance, dispersion and scintillation. Dispersion causes beautiful flashes of rainbow colors in a diamond, called 'Fire'. Scintillation refers to flashes of white and spectral-colored light that emanates from a diamond as a result of movement.

Main Certification

A diamond's certification is a scientific review of the rock's qualities: color, cut, clarity, and carat weight. It pertains to a loose diamond but will accompany the diamond even after a setting has been added. Certifications are conducted by several reputable groups. Certification does not assign a monetary value to a stone; it assigns grades on the diamond's key qualities.

Secondary Certification

A diamond's certification is a scientific review of the rock's qualities: color, cut, clarity, and carat weight. It pertains to a loose diamond but will accompany the diamond even after a setting has been added. Certifications are conducted by several reputable groups. Certification does not assign a monetary value to a stone; it assigns grades on the diamond's key qualities.

Polish

Polish refers to the overall condition of the facet surfaces of a finished diamond. Good polish is essential for maximum brilliance, fire and scintillation. A diamond with few polish lines or tiny blemishes would be rated Excellent. If a diamond has faint polish lines or insignificant blemishes its polish is Very Good. If a diamond has several small blemishes, or if transparent polish lines on the crown are visible through the pavilion, its polish is Good.

Fluorescence

Diamond fluorescence is the effect that ultraviolet (UV) light has on a diamond. When standing under a blue or ultraviolet light, sometimes you can see your whites get brighter or your teeth appear to glow. This is the same effect the diamond has under the UV rays. Fluorescence is the visible light that a diamond emits when exposed to UV rays.

Symmetry

This characteristic refers to the alignment and positioning of the facets, or flat surfaces. Each facet should be carefully positioned by the diamond cutter in proper proportion and relationship to the other facets. The alignment of each facet should be sharp and precise; improperly joined facet junctions can make a diamond appear uneven. The symmetry of a diamond is generally defined as either Poor, Fair, Good, Very Good, or Excellent. When purchasing a diamond, select one with a symmetry grade of Good or above.

Girdle

The girdle is the thin perimeter of a diamond dividing the crown above from the pavilion below. When viewing a diamond in its setting or from a profile view, the girdle is the widest part of the polished diamond - the portion of the stone that makes contact with the setting. When loose diamonds are measured, they are measured by the girdle to obtain length and width in millimeters. The girdle of a diamond can be rough, polished, or faceted. In modern gemstone preparations, brilliant cut diamonds (with triangular-shaped facets) usually have a faceted girdle rather than a perfectly round girdle; this gives the gem higher transparency. Step cut diamonds (with rows of elongated facets that act as mirrors) usually have polished girdles that are not faceted.

Cut

The cut of a diamond refers to its proportions. Of the 4C's, the cut is the aspect most directly influenced by man. The other three are dictated by nature. Cut is very important for diamonds that stand alone in single settings, such as diamond earrings or engagement rings. Canada's producers earned have a reputation as world-class diamond cutters in recent years. A diamond's ability to reflect light determines its display of fire and brilliance. Diamonds are usually cut with 58 facets, or separate flat surfaces. These facets follow a mathematical formula and are placed at precise angles in relation to each other. This relationship is designed to maximize the amount of light reflected through the diamond and to increase its beauty.
