Diamonds usually range in color from ice white to various shades of yellow or brown.
By comparing its color to a set of master tones, a diamond is given a sale ranging from “D to Z.”
It is recommended to buy it with a minimum of H color
which will give it a white appearance when mounted.
The relative “purity” of a diamond helps determine its "rarity", and its cost or value.
The more "pure" a diamond is, the rarer it is.
The industry standard for "clarity" is what an "expert" can see internally in a diamond with a 10x loupe.
A "flawless" diamond is one in which an expert cannot see any imperfection.
Carat is often thought of as size when it actually is a measure of weight. One carat is equal to 200 milligrams.
Diamonds are most commonly referred to in “points.” 100 points equals one carat.
For example, 75 points equals 3/4 of a carat.
Cut refers to the angles and proportions an artisan creates in transforming a rough diamond into a polished diamond.
These craftsmen can manipulate the polished facet surfaces to reflect the majority of light from one facet to another back
through the upper surface of a diamond, rather than have it “leak” out the bottom of the diamond.
This gives the diamond “fire, brilliance and scintillation,” which determines a diamond’s “beauty.”
