Four things to consider before buying diamond jewellery
It is almost impossible to judge the differences in quality between two diamonds with the naked eye. It is, therefore, essential to know and understand the characteristics of diamonds while you are purchasing them.
Diamonds quality can be graded on 4Cs or four factors; the cut, clarity, colour, and carat. The 4Cs are an essential tool in the evaluation of diamonds. They have become the standard of diamond quality assessment.
The four factors;
The cut is the most important of the 4Cs because it is the fire and brilliance of the diamond that makes it valuable. In the absence of the cut, the carat, colour, and clarity will be of little significance.
A diamond with a proper cut enables light to reflect and refract internally — the light exits from the top, which causes a dazzling effect. Conversely, an improperly cut diamond will emit light on the sides and at the bottom, making it dull. So the cut and polishing of a diamond affect its fire, brilliance, and sparkle.
An ideally cut diamond will allow you to compromise on the other Cs and still have a stone with exceptional fire, sparkle, and brilliance. A well-cut diamond hides flaws causing it to pop and sparkle with brilliance.
So it is the fire, sparkle, and the brilliance of a diamond that makes it valuable. If you want high quality diamond jewellery with a fantastic sparkle, look for diamonds that are cut with precision.
Clarity refers to the presence of flaws or identifying marks on the surface and inside the diamond. There are two types of defects; blemishes and inclusions.
Blemishes are the flaws on the surface, while inclusions are the internal ones. Often, it is cutting that causes blemishes. They include scratches, pits, and chips. Inclusions include non-diamond materials, cracks, and air bubbles inside the diamond.
Diamonds can have both types of flaws at the same time. In grading diamonds, all defects are referred to as inclusions. The clarity scale ranges from flawless to heavily included. The fire, brilliance, and beauty of the diamond are affected by the number and size of the flaws.
When it comes to diamonds, colour means clearness. In other words, higher grade diamonds have lesser visible colour. So, the clearer the diamond, the higher will be its value. The degree of the colour of diamonds is tested over a spectrum that ranges from colorless (D) to significantly colored (Z).
Mucky yellowish or brownish diamonds have a low rating. Grade one (1) diamonds have some visible yellow color. White diamonds range from D to H on the scale.
A colorless diamond emits more sparkle and brilliance because it lets more light to pass through it than a colored one.
Carat is the most widely misunderstood of the 4Cs. The weigh of diamonds is measured in a unit called carat. It only reflects the size and weight of the diamond but does not determine its fire or brilliance. A carat is equal to 0.2 grams (200 milligrams) or a fifth of a gram.
