The 4 C's

Every diamond is a unique and beautiful - like snowflakes, each is one of a kind. Understanding what the differences are and how they impact the appearance and value of the stone will help you decide what is important to you in selecting a diamond.

The 4C's of Diamond quality (Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight) have been the globally accepted standard for describing and assessing the quality of diamonds since 1939. These characteristics provide the framework for understanding the basic information about the stones; however there are other criteria – like girdle symmetry, table polish, and precision pointed culets, that can also be used to evaluate a diamond - As a result, two diamonds with the same 4C's criteria may be very different. We are happy to walk you through the process, show you multiple choices in your price range, and help you select the perfect diamond.
