Selecting the Right Diamond

A good understanding of diamonds is necessary before you begin shopping. We've put the basics together here to help guide you. Learning about diamonds is really learning about the "four Cs" of diamonds - cut, clarity, color and carat weight. These are the criteria jewelers use when grading diamonds and they're the ones you'll need to understand to find the right diamond of you.

Cut

cut
This is the most influencing factor in the brilliance of a diamond. A completely clear and colorless diamond can also loose its sparkle if poorly cut.

Color

color
Diamonds vary in color from totally colorless to yellow tinged. Colorless diamonds are the most desirable since they allow for maximum sparkle.

Carat Weight

carat weight
This refers to the size of the diamond. Naturally, since larger diamonds are rare they cost much more. Learn how to carat weight impacts the price and cut of a diamond.

Clarity

clarity
Diamonds can have slight spots or marks that affect their brilliance. The clearer a diamond the more sparkle it has and the more expensive it is. Learn how to spot a clear diamond.
