The Four C’s
Here are the four C’s and what they mean. Read through them a few times to make sure you understand what each one is, and how it can affect the total value of your diamonds.
• Color – You want your diamond to be as colorless as possible. Your diamond will be rated on a scale from D-Z, with D being completely colorless (this is what you want) and Z being the most yellow. Keep in mind that this scale does not apply to the rare pink or blue diamonds.
• Clarity – You want your diamond to be as clear as possible, but most diamonds have some imperfections in them that can cause cloudiness. To determine the clarity of your diamond it must be analyzed at 10x magnification, and then it will be graded on a scale of 1-11.
• Carat – This is possibly the most misunderstood category of diamonds. Carat refers to the weight of the diamond, not its actual size. One carat is 200 milligrams. As the carat weight of the diamond goes up, its value typically will too.
• Cut – The way the diamond was cut is also an important factor. This category is measured by the shape, which can be round, square, princess, marquis or any of the other diamond shapes. In addition, the precision in the cut will be a factor here. Properly cut diamonds will have a greater fire, which is the flash of rainbow colors that come from within, and the diamonds brilliance, which is the sparkle.
