4C’s to select your carat!

Ever wondered how beautiful this life is! Just like this precious life we have expensive diamonds. Did you know- Diamonds have an image of purity and light. They are gifted as a pledge of love. Also, worn as a symbol of commitment.

Hey Hey! Just, so you know- diamonds are not an impulsive purchase. They are a considerable investment and should be purchased after you are sure about your decision. Whether you’re buying a diamond ring or a necklace, all these purchases should be thought over twice before you take the plunge. And since we spend so much time worrying about which kind we want to buy, here’s how you can make this easier.

Well, to make your stress lines go easy- here are four major points to remember before you make your precious diamond purchase.

To cut a long story short, the 4 significant points to consider while buying a diamond are its-

  1. Cut
  2. Colour
  3. Clarity
  4. Carat
  1. CUT of the Diamond-

The diamond cut is the most crucial element to consider when buying a diamond. “Cut” has the dominant influence on a diamond’s sparkle. It is said, that without a high cut grade even a diamond of high quality can appear dull and lifeless. Now if you want a beautiful necklace or a bracelet, you know what to look for in the diamond.

  1. COLOUR of the Diamond-

After the diamond cut, diamond color is the next most significant characteristic to consider when picking a diamond. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) ranks diamond color on a scale of D to Z. This is D being colourless to Z being light yellow-brown.

D-Z diamonds are also categorized as white diamonds.

 

  1. CLARITY of the Diamond-

It is the s the evaluation of small imperfections on the surface and internally. Clarity is one of the 4Cs for selection of a diamond (mainly grading and quality). These tiny, natural blemishes and compositions are microscopic and do not affect a diamond’s beauty in any way. It is not that of an essential factor, but you can keep this point in mind.

 

  1. CARAT of the Diamond-

Carat is the most misinterpreted of the 4Cs. It refers to a diamond’s weight, not the diamond’s size. Note that! You can acknowledge cut and carat together. It is a fact that a larger carat diamond with a poor cut grade can seem smaller than a miniature diamond with a higher cut grade.
