Diamonds

Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat weight are the four characteristics that determine a diamond’s rarity and value

Cut

This is the only diamond characteristic directly influenced by man - the other three are dictated by nature. A good cut releases the ‘fire and sparkle’ of a diamond through the arrangement and proportions of facets.

Colour

The colour differences allow gem quality diamonds to be graded from totally colourless through subtle hints of colour to highly-prized fancy colours.

Clarity

The clarity of each diamond is graded according to its unique combination of inclusions - often called nature’s fingerprints. The fewer the number of inclusions, the rarer the stone.

Carat

Diamonds are sized by their carat weight. One carat equals one hundred ‘points’. Hence the weight of a diamond of 25 points is 0.25 carats or 1/4 carat.
