The Diamond Assessment System, structured by the GIA (Gemology Institute of America), has four properties called the ‘Four C’s’. They are Carat, Clarity, Colour, and Cut. The value of a diamond is graded with this system.
A carat is the unit of measurement for diamonds and gemstones. One carat equals 1/5 of a gram. In order to understand the size of the diamonds, they are cut in quarterly breakdowns i.e, ¼ carat, ½ carat, ¾ carat and 1 carat. The greater the number of carats, the greater the value of your diamond.
Most of the value of a diamond depends on its clarity. Most diamonds have some inclusion or imperfection. The size, colour, and ease are the factors to identify the clarity of a diamond. There are different grades of clarity that range from FL (Flawless), VVS (Very very slight inclusion), VS (Very Slight inclusion), to SI (Slight inclusion) and I (Inclusion).
Colour is graded on a scale from “D” (colourless) to “Z” (Possessing strong Yellow). Don’t worry if your diamond does not fit into this scale; diamonds with colour outside of this scale are referred to as ‘Fancy Diamonds’, and they will still fetch an excellent price from our jewellers.
The cut refers to the symmetry and proportion of diamonds. It is not used to refer the shape such as Princess, Round etc.
