Check the 4 C’s:
When looking for a ring, specifically a diamond, your price will vary when looking at the overall sense of the diamond itself. The diamonds impression can be split into four categories;
Cut, Colour, Carat and Clarity.
A diamonds cut can be measured on a scale of excellent, very good, good, fair and poor. An excellent diamond will carry light into the stone and will shoot it back at the top.
Did you know diamonds actually have subtle colour differences? This is caused by natural forces when the diamond is being formed in the earth potentially giving the ring a yellow or brown tone. A diamond that is colourless is considered to be the most rare and therefore valuable.
A diamond is measured in its weight rather than its size. The higher the weight of the diamond the more carats it will be worth. It is more rare to have a large diamond therefore they are very sought after.
This refers to the diamond's purity. Crystals have the potential to form in the diamond when it is forming, creating small abrasions, sometimes unable to be seen by the naked eye. This is where its level of clarity comes into play.
So there you have it! When looking for the perfect ring for your perfect person keep these standards in mind when searching for that ideal diamond.
