Guide To Buying The Best Diamonds For Your Jewelry
Understanding the 4 C’s of a diamond is essential to find the right diamond to enhance the beauty of your jewelry. The 4 C's describe the anatomy of a diamond and give you a foundation for buying the right diamond that will last a lifetime. The 4 C's of any diamond include the following:
The most important quality to consider in a diamond.
Not referring to colored diamonds, white diamonds are most often valued the highest.
The appearance of any internal flaws within the diamond.
The weight of a diamond, which impacts price, but a bigger the diamond is not always the most expensive.
What makes a diamond beautiful is the shape and form of its structure. The ability of light to pass through or reflect within the diamond derives from the sum of the 4 C's. By understanding the anatomy of a diamond, one can understand how the 4 C's interact with each other.
The shape of a diamond is important to consider because it ultimately affects the diamond’s radiance. The most brilliant diamonds usually have a round cut, but the type of setting can also affect the diamond’s fire and brilliance.
