The 4 C's of Diamond Quality
Known as the 4Cs, the quality of a diamond is primarily determined by its carat, clarity, colour and cut.
Carat simply refers to the weight of the diamond.
1 carat (ct) weighs 200 milligrams. 1 carat is divided up into 100 points, 0.50ct = 50 points, 0.25ct = 25points.
The term carat comes from the carob seeds of the carob tree which give a very consistent weight which early merchants were able to use as a counter weight.
Diamond clarity is a qualitative metric that grades the visual appearance of each diamond. The fewer inclusions and blemishes the diamond has, the better the clarity grade. While the clarity can significantly impact a diamond’s value, imperfections typically can’t be recognized by the naked or unaided eye.
