Check The 4 ‘C’s Of Diamond
Before setting off to buy that perfect diamond wedding ring, you must measure the diamond on following parameters of 4 ‘C’s: Clarity, Color, Cut and Carat weight. Let’s discuss each of these characteristics of diamond one by one:
- Clarity: Nature does not create all perfect stones; each piece of diamond has some flaw. Clarity is a scale which measures the number and magnitude of diamond flaws.
- Carat weight: When you start searching for a diamond wedding ring, karat weight tells you about the diamond’s weight. One karat is 200 milligrams.
- Cut: Cut has nothing to do with the shape of the diamond; it refers to the angles and proportions of the stone. Diamond cuts are made in such a way that they reflect light from one mirror-like facet to another; this disperses and reflects light throughout the diamond. This brilliance of the stone is called ‘fire’ of a diamond.
- Color: The color ranges from clear to varying shades of yellow and brown, it is graded using alphabet letters D to Z. Grading shows a tinge of color, where letter which comes, later on, indicate deeper colors.
