So you’re in the market for a diamond. First and foremost, familiarize yourself with the 4 C’s. We’re talking Carat, Color, Clarity and Cut. At the end of the day the combination of these four qualities will determine the quality of the diamond, and it’s value.
While every aspect is important, if you ask us, the Cut takes the cake. This is because the Cut, above all else, determines a diamonds ability to interact with light. It gives the stone shape, it brings it to life, and it delivers that one aspect that we all love so much about diamonds. Brilliant sparkle.
With the right cut a less-than-perfect diamond can go from meh, to stunning. On the contrary a diamond that is nearly flawless can lose it’s luster if cut to shallow or too deep. It’s no laughing matter. The Cut of your diamond can either make it, or break it.
As you start your quest for the perfect rock, our best recommendation is to get the highest grade cut that you can get within your budget. From there, focus your attention on the Carat weight, Color and Clarity of the diamond. With this advice you’re more likely to end up with a diamond that shines like the stars. And, after all, isn’t that what every woman wants?
