Diamonds – four C

8 June 2015 / Blog

Diamonds are graded based upon their defining characteristics. Informally, these characteristics are called the four C´s—carat, cut, color, and clarity. Carat (also known as the metric carat) measures weight. Specifically, one carat is equal to 200 milligrams.  Cut refers to the proportion, symmetry, and polish of a diamond. The better a diamond´s cut, the more brilliantly it will shine. Color judges the transparency of classic diamonds, and the hue intensity of fancy (colored) diamonds. Clarity measures a diamonds freedom from imperfections known as inclusions, which can negatively affect a diamond´s natural tendency to reflect and scatter light.
