Diamond Grading – Your Diamond, Your Heart, Your Head

When a diamond is graded professionally many factors are taken into consideration in order to arrive at a universally accepted grading scale to determine the quality and price of the diamond.

A total analysis of all the parameters are taken into account the primary consideration is the 4′c and the secondary consideration is the symmetry and polish.   Symmetry is how symmetrical the stone appears and how the facets points meet.  Polish is the smoothness and size of each facet.

At the moment the scale for diamond grading reads ‘excellent’, ‘very good’, ‘good’, ‘fair’, and poor. Avoid ‘poor’. 

We only deal in good quality diamonds and tend to deal in only ‘excellent’ and ‘very good’.  ‘Good’ only if the client chooses.
