Learn About Diamond Cut

Of the four C’s, the cut (also called ‘the make’) is the ‘C’ that determines the brilliance and sparkle of your diamond. Quality and craftsmanship can mean the difference between a positively radiant, lively diamond and a lifeless, lackluster stone

Diamonds have more value if they are cut to maximize their brilliance, not their size. In fact, a poor cut can make even a perfect diamond look dull.

Learn About Diamond Carat

Diamonds are measured in Carat, the word “carat” was derived from the word “Carob”. At the discovery of diamond in Indian in 500BC, the uniformity of seeds from Carob tree made it an ideal measurement standard for diamonds.

Carat is still the measurement standard of diamonds and gemstones till date, as it was in the early days when it was weighed against the seeds.

Learn About Diamond Colour

The color of any diamond has a great impact on it price. When it comes to diamond, the best color is “no color” or “zero color”. That is the more reason why colorless diamonds are rare, unique and expensive.

Colorless diamonds allows light to pass through it easily (more like a sun piercing through glass), colorless diamonds sparkle and emits radiant glow when exposed to light. Thus making a white diamond an expensive piece.

Learn About Diamond Clarity

Clarity of a diamond signifies the absence of imperfections within and on the stone. A diamond with fewer imperfection is quite rare, valuable and expensive. An absence of imperfection indicate rarity and worth.

When there are imperfections, light is blocked from permeating the diamonds. This blockage affects the sparkle of the diamonds.

Conflict diamonds are diamonds that originate from areas controlled by forces or factions opposed to legitimate and internationally recognized governments, and are used to fund military action in opposition to those governments, or in contravention of the decisions of the Security Council.

Learn About Diamond Cost

Diamonds are rare, and the rarity is the major determinant of the monetary value attached to it. When a stone is rare, it comes at a huge price. Knowing that no two diamonds are identical, then two diamonds cannot have the same value.

Diamond is nature and it is without a price tag. For a single diamond piece, different jewelers might give you a different diamond price.

Learn About Diamond Confidence

Diamond World only sells certified diamonds. The certificate serves as a guarantee of quality and serves as the proof of the value of your diamond.

By buying a diamond without a certificate, you are relying on the judgement of the salesperson. A gemologist may disagree with the claims of the salesperson as it is likely to be incorrect.
