Clarity, Cut, Carat and Colour


Clarity

A diamond has the capability to refract more light than any other gemstone. This explains the reason why most engagement ring are diamond engagement rings, or rings containing diamonds. Most diamonds contain tiny natural marks called inclusions. The number of inclusions, their size and location all affect a diamond’s clarity grade, set within the engagement ring. A diamond free of inclusions and exterior flaws allows the passage of light to pass more easily through the stone and, therefore, these diamond rings or diamond engagement rings are considered to be of the highest value. Such stones are extremely rare and, while it is true that the clearer a diamond the better, minor inclusions will not compromise a diamond engagement ring's beauty or endanger its durability. The actual clarity of a diamond can be expressed in an internationally accepted format. All of our diamond engagement rings, diamond rings, diamond earrings and diamond pendants have been graded for their clarity by one of the leading international diamond laboratories such as GIA, HRD or IGI.

Cut

An ideal cut diamond makes full use of the light entering it, maximising its brilliance and ‘fire’.

The cut allows the diamond to make the best use of light and ensures your diamond engagement ring or diamond ring is as beautiful as it can be. When a diamond is cut in the ideal proportions, light is refracted internally from one facet to another before being dispersed through the top of the stone set in your diamond engagement ring. If the cut is too deep, some light will escape through the pavilion in your diamond ring before it can be refracted. A master cutter ensures full light dispersion, maximising the inherent beauty of the stone. Light travelling through an ideal cut diamond bounces back out the top of the stone, bringing its brilliance into view. All of our diamond engagement rings, diamond rings, diamond earrings and diamond pendants have been graded for their cut by one of the leading international diamond laboratories such as GIA, HRD or IGI.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carat

The size of a diamond is measured in carat weight. One carat is divided into 100 points, so that a diamond of 75 points weighs 0.75 of a carat. Whilst carat weight seems the most obvious factor when assessing the value of a diamond, depending on their respective cut, clarity and colour, two diamonds of equal size can have very different values. Big is not necessarily better-diamonds of high quality can be found in all size ranges. However, one diamond of one carat is usually worth more than two diamonds of 0.50ct.

In gem quality diamonds, the accepted colour grading scale runs from colourless to light yellow. The differences from one grade to another are very subtle. Generally the best colour for a diamond is no colour at all. These diamonds are known as white diamonds and are the diamonds with which we are most familiar. Those diamonds with a strong pure colour, such as yellow, green, blue, pink or even red are known as “fancies” and are very rare and extremely valuable.
