The Specialists Working at Our Gem Shop Know the 4 C’s of Diamond Grading

If you have decided to buy a diamond but you have no idea how to get started and know nothing about grading such an expensive gemstone, the first things that you need to learn more about are the 4 C’s of diamond grading. Today, the specialists at our gem shop in Cañon City, CO are going to introduce them to you!

  • Clarity. The visibility, number and size of these inclusions determine what is called the clarity of a diamond.

  • Color. The color of this gem is a result of the composition of the diamond, and it never changes over time. Nuances usually vary between: light yellow (N, O, P, Q, R, S.Z), fancy (yellow), colorless (D, E, F), near colorless (G, H, I, J), and yellow tingle (K, L, M).

  • Carat weight. The carat is the unit of weight by which a diamond is measured. It varies from 1.25 to 8.00.

  • Cut. The cut is probably the most important thing that you should pay attention to when looking for the perfect diamond. It is also the most challenging of the 4 C’s to understand. For this purpose, you will definitely need a professional consultation.
