Diamond Buying Tips
Learning to discern the characteristics and flaws of diamond and imitation diamonds is a skill that takes years of training and experience to master. The experts at Michael Matthews Jewelers have more than 25 years of experience in the diamond industry. The value of diamonds is classified using what is known as the 4 C’s, and this influences the price of the diamonds. The 4 C’s are:
Cut – The cut is the angles and proportions of the diamond, although many people confuse this for the shape of the diamond. A master diamond cutter can reveal the true beauty within the diamond, so that the light projects from one facet to another and creates fire and brilliance. Poorly-cut diamonds lack this brilliance.
Clarity – This describes the natural inclusions in diamonds, such as fractures and minerals within it. Diamonds are viewed under magnification to show the inclusions.
Color – Diamonds come in a variety of colors, but white is the most popular. The color of diamonds ranges from D or colorless to Z. The color is a matter of personal preference, although colorless diamonds are the most valuable.
Carat – This is the weight of the diamond. A full carat is equal to 100 points. Large diamonds are less common, so they will cost more than smaller stones. The right mounting can make a diamond appear larger and our experts will help you find the perfect mounting for your diamond.
