A Crash Course in Diamonds
A diamond’s cut determines how much it’ll sparkle. It’s all about how the facets interact with the light.
Every diamond is assigned a grade, based on how much color it contains. (The whiter the diamond, the higher the grade.)
All diamonds have internal characteristics called inclusions. Clarity measures how noticeable they are under 10x magnification.
The carat is a diamond’s weight, not its size. (Two diamonds can be the same weight, but one could look larger because of its proportions.)
Representational – Actual size may not be exact.
Light performance is a combination of brilliance, sparkle, fire, and light symmetry.
The shape is the diamond’s overall profile, such as round, cushion, or emerald cut.
