Buying a diamond is a purchase most people make only a few times in a lifetime. Since this is such a rare and valuable purchase it is important that you have expert advice and guidance to help you to the correct choice.
Diamonds can be sorted into over 200 categories according to size, shape, colour and clarity. Obviously this would be very confusing (even for us!). To make everyone’s life easier these 2000 categories are condensed into 4 simple easy to understand headings known as “The Four C’s”, Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat Weight.
This not only affects the visual shape – round, square etc but affects how bright the fire and sparkle are, due to the perfection of faceting or the cutters skill.
1.00ct = 0.2g, 1.00ct = 100 points,
0.50ct = 50 points, 0.25ct = 25 points
