For most people, buying a diamond is a new experience, but that doesn’t mean it should be overwhelming. Understanding a diamond’s quality characteristics is straightforward and simple.

 

Shape

As the name suggests, shape (round, princess, radiant, etc.) describes a diamond’s form, primarily as viewed from above. All diamond shapes have different attributes, but overall the beauty of the individual shapes is a matter of personal taste.

 

Clarity

Almost all diamonds have tiny inclusions. Diamonds with few or no imperfections receive the highest clarity grades.

 

Cut

The cut of a diamond determines its brilliance. Put simply, the better a diamond is cut, the more sparkle it will have.

 

Carat Weight

This is the term with which people are most familiar, but bear in mind that carat is specifically a measure of a diamond’s weight.

 

Color

A diamond’s color grade actually refers to the lack of color. In other words, diamonds that are white, containing little or no color, receive higher quality grades than those with visible color.
