Inside the Mind of a Diamond Grader
Selecting a Quality Diamond While at Jewelry Exchange Dallas – Loose Wholesale Diamonds:
The Four C’s
The “4 C’s:” cut, color, clarity, and carat weight which is especially relevant because these 4 factors determine the quality and cost of the diamond.
Cut: The cut is determined by a diamond cutter such as Jewelry Exchange Dallas who sell diamonds direct to the public. Cut refers the angles and proportions of the stone not the shape as a result of a Diamond that has been cut well it reflects light from one facet to another and projects the light through the top of the stone. The better the Diamond is cut the more it sparkles much as Diamonds that are cut too deep or too shallow leak light through the bottom or the side of the stone, resulting in a lackluster appearance. The cut is the most important of all the 4 C’s. You will not have a fiery brilliance with a bad cut while your fiancé shows off to her engagement ring to her friends. Consequently she will move her hand this way and that to catch the light. Beware the cut.
Color: D – Z Diamonds come in a variety of colors consequently Diamond color is graded on a scale that ranges from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow). Colorless diamonds are the most rare and most expensive. White color diamonds are the most popular. Diamond color is all about preference.
Clarity: FL – SI2 The fewer imperfections (inclusions) a diamond has, the more clear. Consequently the more expensive it is. What is an Inclusion? Inclusions are other minerals or tiny fractures in the diamond. Clarity is measured on a scale FL to SI2. Although SI1 and SI2 are slightly included you won’t be able to see the imperfection with the naked eye. Avoid diamonds with inclusions on the top and in the middle since this can impact the dispersion of light, making it less brilliant.
Carat Weight: Carat refers to the weight of a diamond. Hence the heavier the stone, the more you’re going to pay. However, there’s no need to get to caught up on the carat weight because through proper mounting and shaping, a master jeweler can make a diamond appear larger than its carat weight might suggest.
