The four C’s
The four C’s — cut, color, clarity and carat must be considered equally when selecting the perfect diamond. A diamond’s cut is the single most
important characteristic in a diamond and refers to it’s symmetry, proportioning and polish. The cut determines a diamond’s brilliance and
beauty.The absence or presence of color in a diamond is determined by GIA’s diamond color-grading scale where they are ranked from from D
(colorless) to Z (yellow). The closer a diamond reaches colorless, the more rare and valuable it is.
No two diamonds are alike, as nature is what determines their underlying characteristics. The absence or presence of any internal inclusions

inclusions are visible to the naked eye. The fewer inclusions a diamond has, the greater the gemstone’s value.
