Cut

It is not the shape of the diamond but the proportion of each of the facets that are on the diamond to look for. This allows more light that will be reflected and gives the stone the most brilliance. Normally the familiar round diamonds are commonly cut with 58 facets and are the most popular.

Clarity

The clarity is determined by its visibility, number and size of inclusions. Almost all diamonds have inclusions with most invisible to the eye. Your jeweler can point out any with a loupe or microscope.

Color

Although diamonds come in many body colors, the most common on the market is white' with minuscule measures of yellow, gray or brown. The most desirable color is actually colorless as it allows the most refraction of light giving off more sparkle.  

Carat Weight

A carat is the unit of weight that a diamond is measured in. The carat divided into 100 points, whereas a half a carat would be 50 points.

After a purchase, you will receive a diamond certificate or a grading report. This certifies that an evaluation has been performed by a qualified professional from either the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the Hoge Raad voor Diamant (HRD).
