The cut determines how the light is reflected in the diamond. (Cut)
A rough diamond can look so much like an ordinary pebble that most people would just walk past it. Only craftsmen are able to bring out the brilliance of a rough diamond. While nature determines the color and clarity, the shape of the cut depends on the craftsman who splits the stone. A diamond loses on average about 50% of its original weight during the cutting process. The polisher is therefore faced with the task of applying the facets in such a way that the light is optimally reflected from one facet to the other.
The colour of a diamond can vary from colourless to light yellow. (color)
The more colourless the diamond, the more valuable it is. Diamonds with a natural, bright yellow, orange, green, blue, pink or even red colour are truly exceptional. These rare gems are called “fancy colour” diamonds. These precious gems are rare, but give your ring an exclusive look.
The clarity of a diamond indicates how pure the stone is. (clarity)
Each stone has inclusions (imperfections). Most inclusions only become visible under a magnifying glass. A diamond that has no inclusions with a ten times magnifying magnifying glass is called flawless. The fewer of these inclusions, the brighter and more precious the diamond is.
The weight of the diamond is expressed in carats. (carat)
One carat equals 0.2 grams. Often the weight is indicated in dots. One carat equals 100 dots.
