Diamonds are truly one of nature's most precious and beautiful creations. They are formed from pure carbon that is crystallized under intense heat and pressure deep below the earth's surface. Although diamonds are the world's hardest substance, their appeal goes far beyond their durability.
Over the years, diamond professionals have developed universally standardized criteria for assessing a diamond's value. Beauty, rarity and price depend on the interplay of the 4 Cs: cut, clarity, color and carat. Diamonds with the highest rating in each of these categories are increasingly rare and more expensive. No one characteristic is more important than another in terms of appearance and quality.
Cut refers to the the make of the diamond -- the angles, proportion and symmetry. A well-cut diamond reflects maximum light and thus sparkles the best. Cut can also refer to the shape of the diamond. Shapes include round, oval, emerald, asscher, heart, square, pear, marquis, princess, trilliant and radiant. The diamond shapes used in La Collection de Bijoux
are round-brilliant, heart and pear. The 58-facet round-brilliant cut is the most optically brilliant because of its 360-degree symmetrical shape. The complex heart shape is the ultimate symbol of love, and requires skilled cutting to ensure proper brilliance. The fancy pear-shaped cut is a variation on the round-brilliant cut, with one round end and the other tapered to a point, like a teardrop.
Clarity refers to the presence of internal inclusions ("blemishes") in a diamond. It indicates a stone's relative position on a "purity" scale.
Flawless : FL
No internal or external flaws
Internally Flawless : IF
No internal flaws
Very, Very Slight Inclusions : VVS1, VVS2
Inclusions very difficult to see under 10X
Very Slight Inclusions : VS1, VS2
Inclusions are not typically visible to the unaided eye
Slight Inclusions : SI1, SI2, SI3
Inclusions are visible under 10x magnification and may be visible with the unaided eye
Included : I1, I2, I3
Inclusions that are visible to the naked eye
COLORColor refers to the degree to which a diamond is colorless. The less color in a diamond, the better the diamond grade.
|Colorless||Near Colorless||Faint Yellow||Very Light Yellow||Light Yellow||Fancy|
CARATCarat refers to the weight of the diamond. One carat is equivalent to 0.2 grams. A carat is further divided into points (100 points = 1 carat).
