The 4 Cs of Diamond Quality is the globally recognised method for assessing the quality of diamonds. A diamond’s value is gauged using all the 4 Cs and not just the carat weight. Larger diamonds are more valuable as they are rarer and more desirable.
Some diamond weights are considered “magic sizes” e.g 0.50ct, 0.75ct. On appearance you’ll notice little difference between a 0.99 carat diamond and one that weighs a full carat, but prices vary significantly. We’ll help you navigate all these factors to source a diamond perfect for you.
Two diamonds of the same carat weight can vary in price depending on the other factors of the diamond colour, clarity and cut. Carat weight is not to be confused with the metal carat which describes a particular metals fineness, for example 9, 18, 22 and 24 carat gold.
The cut of a diamond is all about unlocking the most out of the stone using the art of gemstone cutting
Diamond clarity refers to the absence of naturally occurring inclusions within the stone or blemishes on the surface
Most diamonds can appear white to the natural eye but many display hints of colour especially on closer inspection.
