Diamond and gemstone jewellery is evaluated by the 4C standard where the Cs refer to colour, cut, clarity and carat weight.
Clarity – The clarity of a diamond refers to the absence of imperfections, known as (internal) ‘inclusions’ and (external) ‘blemishes’. Diamond which occur naturally are never completely free of flaws, and hence, the nature and number of imperfections in each diamond are closely examined under a magnifying instrument to assess its clarity. The lesser the imperfections, the higher the clarity and the better is the diamond.
Cut – The rough diamond that is hewed from mines is cut into its final form to give it the various facets which make it the beautiful diamond for use in jewellery. While it may seem easy, assessing the cut of a diamond is the most complex of the 4Cs which are used to evaluate diamonds. The assessment of the cut involves checking for the brightness or white light reflected from the diamond, the white light scattering into a rainbow, as well as the sparkle within the diamond.
Colour – It is a common misconception that diamonds are colourless. It is not easy for a lay person to identify the different colour distinctions of a diamond as these are extremely subtle and cannot be detected by the naked eye. Among the various colours of diamonds, there are blue, red, yellow, grey, purple, and even black, apart from the purest form, which is colourless. The colour of the diamond stems from the presence of impurities, which brings down the value of the diamonds.
Carat – The 4th C is the carat, or weight of the diamond. Its name is derived from the carob seeds which were used by early traders to weight against the diamonds. Roughly, a larger carat diamond will be valued higher, but the other three Cs also determine the value of the diamond.
