THE 4C’s… What to Look for When Choosing Your Diamond

COLOUR – Diamonds are graded from D colourless (usually used for engagement rings, stud earring) to Z, light yellow tint. D diamonds are very rare and valuable.

CUT– (sparkle in diamond) a well-cut diamond (cut to mathematical proportions) will appear bigger, brighter and more attractive then a poorly cut diamond.

CLARITY – (purity of diamond) there are 11 grades of clarity that go from flawless (FL) to obvious blemishes (can be seen with naked eye) (I3). A diamond that is higher up on the Clarity Scale will be more brilliant and more valuable because it does not have blemishes that will limits its ability to refract and reflect light.

CARAT WEIGHT – (size/weight) the weight of a diamond is measured in Carats, a single Carat works out to be 0.2gms – for example a 1ct diamond has 100 points (1.00).

Nature’s miracle that can keep on giving…

Nature has created a miracle in the diamond and when you have chosen your diamond ring sometimes you look at it and you see dullness that is because it may need a clean. Dirt on the diamond, especially on the pavilion of the diamond, increases the apparent critical angle at which light escapes from the diamond and the light escapes towards the tip of your finger not through the top of the diamond. A proper cleaning frees that light to reflect back properly to our eyes where it can be appreciated. The end result is quite dramatic.

One of the services The Diamond Club Perth offers is assisting in redesigning /remodelling of your existing piece or an heirloom you have just inherited. If this is something you have been considering for a while, call us on 9301 5880 and we can make a time for you to come in with your jewellery pieces and chat about what you have in mind.
