This is the geometric proportion of the diamond. This affects the gem’s sparkle and allure. Skilled craftsmanship is a necessity in cutting a diamond to match its proportion, symmetry, and polish to its magnificence. The cut determines the gem’s symmetry and light reflecting ability. This process is the most difficult as it is scientific and technical.
This feature directly influences the appearance of a diamond, ranging from colorless to light yellow. The gem’s value is measured by how much the diamond’s color is close to colorless. The nearer it is to colorless the higher it’s value. The more the color in a diamond, the more its ability to reflect light is decreased.
It is a scale entailing 11 grades varying from internally flawless to include grade 3. Inclusions in a diamond are the marks it naturally comes with, which in turn makes the diamond unique in its own way. The lesser the inclusions, the clearer the diamond and the higher its value as this makes it rare. Clarity is graded according to the number, size, relief, and position relative to the inclusions.
This is basically the measurement of the physical weight of a diamond. 1 carat is equal to 0.2 grams. Carat has been the basic unit of measurement of diamonds and other gemstones since 1913. The more the carat, the more the value of the gem.
It is important to know which among the four pointers would be your preference in gauging the value of the diamond, be it cut, color, clarity or carat.
There are tips to remember when buying diamonds:
Choose a jeweller who’s been in the business for a while
This will help because only successful businesses are steady and have built a strong reputation. The longer the time in the industry, the better the products in terms of quality.
Always check for stone certification
The stones need to be certified from bodies like the Gemmology Institute. This enables you to know what exactly you are purchasing the certificate contains details of the gem in utter specifications. This is important because diamonds are measured by the human eye, so a trusted regulatory body is necessary when it comes to trusting a diamond supplier.
The center stone needs to be up to standard. A fine setting could make the stones fall off and a heavy one might not allow adequate light into the stone hence not allowing it to be seen to its full potential.
Check it’s ethical
It is diligent of a buyer to check whether the stone is mined from a reputable source.
Always work with someone you trust
Purchasing a diamond is a huge investment; therefore you need to be certain about where you are placing your money. If you know someone who has purchased diamonds and gives you a recommendation then they probably were satisfied and you probably will be too.
