4Cs are the basics

The four C's of diamonds (Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat) all contribute to a diamond's beauty. The grades a diamond receives in these four areas provide a clear indication of the diamond's quality and, by extension, the appropriate price you should be willing to pay.

Beyond the 4Cs

The important details you may not know about

There are number of important factors that are not covered by the 4Cs, for example. the clarity grade of a diamond is determined by the visibility of inclusions under magnification. However, this does not always reflect how visible these flaws will be to the naked eye, which we would argue is the most important factor to consider when choosing a diamond. The colour and positioning of an inclusion, for example, can make a significant difference. Diamond characteristics such as brown or green colour tinge, milkiness, and fluorescence are also not graded by the 4Cs.

The things to consider beyond the 4Cs depends on your diamond selection, and vary case by case, let us guide you Through the process.

Fluorescence refers to a diamond's ability to emit a (soft) glow when exposed to ultraviolet light (UV light). The fluorescence effect is present in over 30% of diamonds and is an important factor to consider when purchasing a diamond.

Diamonds, like coal, are carbon. It takes a little more effort to get and keep them burning than coal, but they will, as numerous YouTube demonstrations attest. The trick is to create the proper conditions for a solid diamond to react with the oxygen needed to fuel a fire.

Diamonds are rated 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. They are 90 times harder than the 2nd hardest naturally-occurring substance, which is ruby or sapphire.
