C/W CARAT WEIGHT

A carat is the unit of measurement which the jewelry industry uses to weigh a diamond. One carat is equal to 0.20 gr. Diamond weight is also displayed in points. One carat is equal to 100 points. Thus a stone of e.g. 1.50 carat means it is 1 carat and 50 points.

CLARITY

Pure diamonds are extremely rare. Almost all rough diamonds contain impurities or “Inclusions”

Cut

The cut grade not to be confused with the “Shape of the Diamond” is crucial to diamond’s beauty and value.

DIAMOND COLOR

The Diamond’s Polish is part of the manufacturing process of a finished diamond. After the diamond is cut and faceted, the diamond is polished to achieve a smooth surface.
