The 4C's or How To Choose Your Perfect Diamond

Every Diamond is Unique

Each reflects the story of its arduous journey from deep inside the earth to a cherished object of adornment. Yet all diamonds share certain features that allow us to compare and evaluate them. These features are called the 4Cs.

How Did the Carat Sistem Start?
The modern carat system started with the carob seed. Early gem traders used the small, uniform seeds as counterweights in their balance scales. The carat has the same gram weight in every corner of the world.

Cut is what unleashes the  “Light” within a stone.  Cut is  what gives the stone its ability  to “dance”. Cut refers to the  brilliance of the stone,  determined by the quality and  proportion of its facets. The  interaction of the facets with  the light is what gives the  diamonds their unique  sparkle and brilliance.Polish refers to the quality  and smoothness of each facet  of the stone. Facets are the flat,  polished surfaces on any side of  the gem. Tiny defects, invisible  to the naked human eye, can  disrupt the light patterns as the  light rays enter and exit the  gem. Polish quality is measured  based on the severity of those  surface imperfections.Symmetry is the precision of the alignment and intersection  of the facets of the gem. It is  what makes the “light” travel  properly through the stone.  Symmetry is judged based on  the ideal proportions between  all the facets of the gem,  specific for each shape.  Symmetry often has serious impact on price.
