Yes. The 5th C refers to Certificate. The diamond certification (also known as a grading report) is a document that contains vital information on the diamond’s properties, such as the 4Cs, fluorescence, and other remarks. Untrustworthy jewellers will frequently dismiss this document by saying things like “it’s just a piece of paper” or “you’re buying […]

Diamond CutDiamond Colour GradeDiamond ClarityDiamond Carat Weight Many people have heard of the 4 C’s of diamonds but don’t really understand what they mean and how they impact a purchase decision. The 4 C’s were developed by the industry’s peak standards body – the Gemological Institute of America – and adopted universally by respected jewellers. […]

The Cut as it has the most impact on a diamond’s brilliance and sparkle among the 4Cs (cut, colour, clarity, and carat). If the cut is excessively shallow or deep, even a diamond with perfect clarity (no imperfections or inclusions) will appear glassy or dull. As a result, when choosing a diamond, go for the […]

Diamond carat weight is a measurement of how much a diamond weighs. 200 milligrammes equals one metric “carat.” 100 ‘points’ are distributed into each carat. This enables measurements to be made to the hundredth decimal place. A jeweller can use the ‘points’ alone to convey the weight of a diamond under one carat. A 0.25 […]

To comprehend diamond clarity, we must first comprehend diamond formation. Natural diamonds are formed when carbon is exposed to extreme heat and pressure deep down. This process can produce a range of internal and external characteristics known as ‘inclusions’ and ‘blemishes.’ The quantity, size, relief, nature, and position of these characteristics, as well as how […]

Understanding the meaning of diamond hue aids in the selection of the ideal diamond. Surprisingly, the absence of colour is used to assess the hue of most gem-quality diamonds. Like a drop of pure water, a chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond has no colour and thus a higher value. The GIA’s D-to-Z diamond colour-grading […]

People frequently associate “cut” with a diamond’s shape rather than its cut quality. Cut refers to a diamond’s dimensions, symmetry, and polish, which constitute the cut quality or fourth ‘C’. Table Size: The table is the diamond’s top horizontal facet. The average table size is calculated as a percentage of the girdle diameter of the […]
