Diamond Guide



Choosing the right diamond is not a decision to be taken lightly, as this is a special and cherished piece of jewelry that will hold important sentimental value for many years. Understanding what you are looking for and knowing the basics will help you to make the best choice.

One thing to consider is the shape that you are looking for. Do you want a classic round cut, a princess cut or an emerald or marquis cut? Also, to make the right choice you will need to consider the 4Cs.

One C stands for Cut, which is the way that the diamond has been shaped into facets that will reflect the light. Colour is another “C”, which describes the hue of the diamond (they aren’t always truly clear!). Another “C” is clarity, which describes the internal purity of the diamond. You should also consider “C” for Carat, which is a measure of weight.

These factors will help you to choose a diamond that is valuable as well as beautiful.
