Learn about diamonds with the 4 Cs: Carat, Cut, Color, and Clarity – the keys to a diamond’s beauty and value.

• Carat is about the weight of a diamond. Bigger diamonds have more carats. The word "carat" comes from carob seeds, which were once used to weigh gems on scales. They later created the metric carat as a standard way to measure diamond weight. It's like checking how heavy a diamond is, and the name comes from olden times when seeds were used for the same purpose.

• Clarity is about how clear a diamond looks, checking for tiny imperfections. Graded from Flawless (no imperfections, even under magnification) to Included (visible imperfections), less marks mean more value. clarity ensures the diamond looks super clear and valuable.).

• A diamond's clarity is all about how clear it looks. The clearer the diamond the better it is. Graded from Flawless (no imperfections) to Included (visible imperfections), less marks usually mean the diamond is more valuable. clarity is about making sure the diamond looks super clear and precious

• A diamond's color grade tells us how colorless it is. While most diamonds seem colorless, they might have a hint of yellow or brown. The closer to colorless, the rarer and more valuable. The scale goes from D (colorless) to Z (a bit tinted). So, for a more special and valuable diamond, aim for less color.

• Cut is how the diamond is shaped to make it sparkle. A good cut makes it shine more. It's not just about the shape, but how well it reflects light. When we talk about the cut of a diamond, we mean how it's shaped to make it really sparkly and beautiful.
