The 4 C's of a Diamond
Clarity: Clarity characteristics are classified as inclusions or blemishes. Clarity is the degree to which a diamond is free of blemishes or inclusions.
Color: Grading color is deciding how closely a diamond bodycolor approaches colorless: the less colour the higher the grade, and the value. Fancy colors are graded by tone and saturation: the brighter the color and purer the color, the higher the value.
Cut: Proportions and finish of polished diamonds are cut and make. Cut is the human contribution to a diamond's beauty. Cut could also be the shape of the stone. Cut affects the optical properties of the stone.
Carat Weight: Metric carat is the standard unit of weight for diamond. 0.2 gram = 1 carat. Weight is measured to a thousandth of a carat and rounded to the nearest hundredth (or point). A point is a hundredth of a carat.
