B. Cut

Cut of the diamond determines its beauty, more than any other factor. While all the three other Cs related to the stone depends upon nature, this one is a manmade feature. It refers to symmetry, polish, and proportion of the stone determining the way it reflects the light. Finishes and angles related to diamond ultimately control its brilliance.

C. Colour

In white diamonds tint presence is undesirable. Colour impurity relates to presence of hydrogen, nitrogen, boron, as well as other elements.

D. Clarity

Purity or Clarity of diamond describes its ability to reflect light or its brilliance. Easy to understand and clearly determined, clarity is a comparatively simple to distinguish feature. Mostly, it is measured by diamond size as well as number of blemishes or inclusions related to it. Inclusion signifies interior irregularities. Blemishes on the other hand, are the exterior irregularities. It is important to remember that these are never flaws.

E. Carat Weight

Carat weight is the weight measurement of the gemstone. It never denotes the diamond quality only its size via weight. Earlier, people used carob seeds for scale balancing, hence the name carat. Today, it indicates gold purity. One carat subdivides to 100 points and 5 carats equals 1 gm. Diamond sizes proportional with its carat weight. Polishing and cutting of diamonds for developing the finished products may remove 2/3rdof its carat weight.

F. Certification

Diamond certification and grading determines its true worth and resale value. Diamond certifications give its grading report and gem lab accredited guaranty. It works as a blueprint for the gemstone telling its exact Weight, Measurements, Value, and Identity.
