The way diamonds are graded can be quite difficult to grasp, so in order to navigate through this subject we wrote a simple guide that contains full details about each of the 4C’s. So what is diamond clarity and how does it affect the value of the stone?
According to the amount of inclusions in a diamond, we can determine the clarity grade. While diamonds are naturally created within Earth, they gather tiny elements of carbon or boron and which results in inclusions. They look like small lines, marks, or even colored specks which have direct impact on the clarity of the diamond. The more visible the inclusions are affects the clarity grade to be lower and the value of the stone declines.
The physical form of a diamond is the first thing couples look for when they consider purchasing an engagement ring. Mostly, round diamonds are more popular but in the past decade the rising trend of uniqueness and unconventional shapes became very appealing to a lot of people.
There are a few spectacular diamond shapes that are known by the name “fancy shaped diamonds” and that category contains princess cut diamonds, cushion emerald, radiant, oval, pear and heart shaped stones.
