The 4 C'S OF DIAMOND QUALITY
The color scale extends from D (colorless) to Z (yellow or brown).
Truly colorless diamonds are extremely rare. Most diamonds are in the nearly colorless range with slight tints of yellow.
Color grade is determined by comparing each diamond to a master set; a set of 5 diamonds that represent color range on the color scale. Each letter grade represents a range of colors and is a measure of how noticeable a color is.
There are 11 clarity grades on the grading scale ranging from flawless to 13.
Diamonds form under tremendous pressure so it is very rare to find a diamond completely free from internal or external flaws. These characteristics help gemologists separate natural diamonds from synthetic/simulants and identify individual stones.
The cut scale ranges from excellent to poor.
A diamond's iconic sparkle comes from its complex relationship with light. This comes from three different attributes:
Brightness - a combination of all white light reflecting from the surface or interior of a diamond.
Fire - this describes the "flares" of color emitted from a diamond.
Scintillation - describes the pattern of light and dark areas along with the sparkle you see when the diamond moves.
For diamonds under one carat, each carat is divided into 100 points, similar to pennies in a dollar.
