When searching for diamonds, it is important to pay close attention to the following four Cs: Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat weight.
Many people assume that the value of precious minerals, like diamonds, are determined only by their carat weights when, in fact, the combination of all four properties determine the value, and no one property is more important than the other.
For instance, no matter how high a diamond ranks on the carat scale, if it comes in a poor dull cut, it will affect the overall look and feel of the stone, thus robbing it of its pristine quality.
To help the buyer better understand the quality of the diamonds, each quality is explained below.
The more colorless a diamond, the higher it ranks on the GIA grading scheme. The color qualities are represented under five categories, namely: Colorless (D-F), Near Colorless (G-J), Faint (K-M), Very Light (N-R), and Light (S-Z).
Clarity is divided into flawless, internally flawless, very slightly included (VVS1 and VVS2), very slightly included (VS1 and VS2), slightly included (SI1 and SI2), and included (I1, I2, and I3). These attributes are used to describe the extent of inclusions and blemishes present in the diamond.
Pure diamonds are diamonds without inclusions, and they are called flawless. The more inclusions and blemishes found in the diamonds, the less pure it looks to the naked eye. Naturally, the purer the diamond, the pricier it is.
Check the accredited certification card that comes with the diamond jewelry you plan to purchase to ascertain that you are paying for the right quality.
Cut describes the style in which a diamond is shaped, and it greatly influences the sparkly quality of the diamond.
Diamonds are cut in many different shapes, which are shown on the Katz Jewelry Co. website namely: Round, Princess, Oval, Emerald, Asscher, Cushion Brilliant, Radiant, Pear, Marquise, and Heart.
One carat is equivalent to one-fifth of a gram, or to put it better, two hundred milligrams.
There are many reasons why you can trust Katz Jewelry Co. to sell you the best quality diamonds that are commensurate with your budget and taste. One of them is the fact that they assign cut grades that are consistent with GIA’s, IGI’s, and GIA’s standards.
Besides, only naturally mined and laboratory-grown diamonds are sold. You do not have to worry about the risk of being sold simulated diamonds at the price of the real stone.
More Diamond & Jewelry Considerations
As you set out to select your diamonds from the website, here are more factors to take into consideration:
If you are not buying the item for yourself, then consider finding out the exact cut preference of the recipient (such a cold word for your sweetheart, but we’ll run with it). Diamonds are precious and getting something that does not satisfy the taste of the giftee could defeat the entire purpose of the gesture.
Also, remember that saying that goes “if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything?” It comes in handy in this situation.
It is always best to have a certain quality and price in mind to avoid overspending, or for diamonds that you would not desire in the long run because of the impulsiveness with which it was bought.
After you must have made up your mind on the quality of the diamond you want (after factoring the four Cs into your decision making), there is the likelihood that the price exceeds your budget. This is normal. We all desire and aspire to things bigger than us.
At this point, little concessions should be made at the jewelry shop/website. However, no matter how many concessions you make, there are certain quality thresholds that you must not go below if you want high-standard diamonds.
For instance, clarity property should not go beneath VS2, which means that your diamond must only be slightly included with other materials, if at all.
Ideally, you should take the utmost discerning perspective in your diamond screening process, and it is only after you are satisfied with the clarity that you can begin to make concessions with other properties.
For color, we advise that your precious stone falls under the “Near Colorless” category, whose range is between “G” to “J”.
If you must come down a little on the quality of your diamond’s cut, then the cut must, at least, be certified as “Good” if it is of a fancy shape, and “Very Good” if it is of the more common round shape.
Finally, don’t be afraid to reduce the carat weight of your choice a little if it will translate to affordability for you. And you can rest assured that whatever your eventual choice is, the New York City based Katz Jewelry Co. has got you covered, from ears, to neck, to wrist, and fingers.
