Diamond Grading Terminology
A diamond’s cost is based on the characteristics known as the “4 C’s”. Clarity, Colour and Cut (proportion) are the quality elements which together with the Carat Weight determine the value of a stone. The closer a diamond grades to the left of one or all of these scales the rarer and the more costly it will be. While clarity is frequently assumed to be the most important factor of all the “C’s”, in fact, colour and cut (especially cut) have a more profound affect on the visual appearance of a diamond.
