Guide to the Four C's

1. Cut
.The Ideal Cut Diamond describes a round brilliant diamond that has been cut to exact and mathematically proven proportions. Its symmetry, with 58  exactly placed facets, produces the ultimate in lustre and beauty. When a round brilliant diamond has been cut to "Ideal" proportions by a master cutter, it is a magnificent gem.
2. Color
Most diamonds, although appearing colorless, actually have slight tones of yellow or brown. As these tones become more easily apparent, the uniqueness and cost decrease.
3. Clarity
Practically all diamonds contain naturally occurring internal characteristics called inclusions. The size, location and number of inclusions determine a diamond's clarity and grade, and affect its cost. One unique advantage of the Ideal Cut is that its sparkle can mask otherwise noticeable inclusions.
4. Carat Weight
The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. One carat is divided into100 parts called "points," 1 ct.=100 points; 2 ct.=200 points. The value of two diamonds of the same weight can vary greatly depending on the color, clarity and especially the cut. The value of a diamond can vary as much as 40% based on the cutting alone.
