THE 4 C's OF BUYING A DIAMOND
4C's:- Four Characteristics that determine the quality and value of a diamond.
Cut:-

There is Cut. And then there'a Cut

Many people confuse cut with the shape of a diamond. Diamonds are cut into a number of shapes; depending on the nature of rough diamond. The most popular are Round, Marquise, Oval, Pear, Heart and Emerald; and the choice is largely a matter of personal preference. Whatever the shape, however, a well cut diamond is the work of a master diamond cutter. When cut to good proportions, the diamond is better able to handle light, creating more scintillation, more sparkle and that's a great reflection on you.
It is the cut that enables a diamond to make the best use of light.
  • When a diamond is cut in good proportions, light is reflected from one facet to another and then dispersed through the top of the diamond.
  • If the cut of the diamond is too deep, some light escapes through the opposite side of the pavilion.
  • If the cut is too shallow, light escapes through the pavilion before it can be reflected.

Proportions Of Diamonds
  • SHALLOW: If the diamond is cut too shallow, part of the light leeks out the bottom.


  • IDEAL: In a properly cut diamond, light entering through the table and bezel face is reflected back through the top.


  • DEEP: If the diamond is cut too deep, much of the light leaks out of the side
