The Four C’s & Diamond Shapes
The four C’s stand for a diamond’s color, cut, clarity, and carat weight. The diamond's color denotes a lack of color. A chemically pure and structurally flawless diamond has no color, just like a drop of clear water, and as a result, is a higher value.
Diamond clarity is the lack of imperfections and flaws. The fewer imperfections, the better. Natural diamonds are made when carbon is subjected to extreme heat and pressure in the earth's interior. Numerous internal traits referred to as "inclusions" and outward characteristics referred to as "blemishes" may be produced due to this procedure.
The weight of a diamond is expressed in terms of carats. The definition of a metric "carat" is 200 milligrams, which is the most objective of the diamond’s 4Cs.
And last but not least, the cut is perhaps one of the most important aspects of a diamond when it comes to engagement rings. So, these are the most popular diamond cuts for engagement rings and what you will typically find a married woman wearing on her finger – check it out below:
