As you all know the 4 basic elements that make up the expensive pricing for the diamonds are pretty straightforward.  The most important 3 components of a diamond’s pricing are the Clarity, Color and of course the Carat Weight this are really easy to understand and to remember. The heavier is the (carat weight) , The less “stuff” that is inside of the diamond (a higher Clarity), the more it looks white like “ice” (a higher color, more colorless) the more it will cost. There are some charts you can use for reference so it is kind of easy to comprehend when you are looking to buy for diamond engagement rings or any piece of jewelry.

201438.04The “C” of the Cut:
The “Cut” of a diamond is the biggest factor in how beautiful a diamond will be.. meaning that if a diamond is cut to exacting angles and proportions, the diamond’s potential beauty will be realized. It is this one factor that can account for nearly 50% of a diamond’s value! When it comes to the Cut of a diamond, there are many people who can become confused as to what all those numbers and terms mean. Over the years, diamond cutters have been improving their methods and the quality of their finished product. There are a couple of things that have been driving these improvements. The first would be the greater number of Gemologists that are working in the jewelry business and they can quickly and accurately tell the difference between well cut and poorly cut of the diamonds.

The other huge change has been the wide spread use of diamond grading reports, which have become a “must have” part of the diamond transaction. Even with these changes in the diamond buying process, a diamond’s Cut can still be a minefield of misinformation and confusion. Just because a diamond has a grading report it does not guarantee that the diamond will be beautiful. When considering a diamond that comes with a grading report, it is best if you only accept diamond grading reports that come from GIA, AGSL, or GCAL. These diamond grading reports do have a Cut grade that can be trusted and that can be used to compare with other diamonds. The topic of diamond grading reports can be pretty involved and there are times that you can depart from this general rule.
