What is color?
The color of a diamond is graded on a scale from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow) with the D being the most sought after color. The exception to this rule is that for diamonds that possess an extremely rare or unusual color for example green or red. The more common diamond options include blue, pink and yellow.
What Is Cut?
The cut of a diamond does not refer to its shape –although most of us think it does. But the way that the stone is cut in order to amp up its sparkle whether deep in shape or shallower. A well-cut diamond should have a bright shine, and should reflect light easily internally and externally.
What Is Clarity?
This refers to how many inclusion or small imperfection a diamond contains. These are only visible under a magnifying glass and these tiny specks come in almost every diamond and these are formed when the diamond is first crystallised under the crust of the earth.
What Is Carat?
The carat is the weight of your chosen stone or stones, and is one way to measure the value of the ring you choose. usually the higher the carat of a single stone, the more it will cost and the bigger it will look, although a diamond with a shallower cut can appear larger than a deeper-cut stone that may actually weigh more. So know better and make sure you do your own research before you lock down the perfect one! n
Happy engagement ring hunting!
