Ask anyone what they can tell you about a diamond and in most cases they will divulge the 4c's quite effortlessly. To understand the diamond value, it is essential that you understand the standards of cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. While colour, clarity and carat are all features that help to determine the quality and value of your diamond, the most important criterion to determine the quality of a diamond is the quality of its cut. This does not refer to the overall shape of the diamond but rather the quality of the cutting. It is the most important aspect of any diamond. The way a diamond is cut influences the way in which it refracts and reflects the light. A diamond may be colourless and flawless but if it is not cut well, it will appear dull and lifeless. A well cut diamond has more sparkle, and sparkle, as the diamond houses already know, is exactly what you're paying for. The proportion, finish and symmetry of the external facets of the diamond are what create the fire and brilliance.
