The Four C’s
Now that you’ve got your budget all figured out and you know how to find a good quality diamond, it’s time to take a look at the four C’s. These are the cut, color, clarity, and carat of a diamond. Each of the four C’s will ultimately determine the overall quality of a diamond by a grader or retailer. Read more about the four C’s here.
What we call birthmarks, diamonds call inclusions. These imperfections or inclusions found on a diamond are measured using a clarity chart. The clarity of a diamond refers to the degree in which inclusions are present on the surface of the diamond. This could be a chip or a dent in the surface or some sort of discoloration.
Though it’s rare for a diamond to have a perfect clarity, most of the diamonds that are sold have little to no noticeable flaws. So even if the clarity level of a diamond is rated high, you may not be able to notice the imperfection. In fact, most if not all diamond flaws can only be seen through a loupe tool that magnifies to 10x.

A diamond certification is basically a report card. It’s a report card for the diamond that reflects each of the four C’s we talked about above along with other details like its measurements and unique traits like symmetry and fluorescence. As a result, diamonds get certified by sending them to a third party grading lab like the Gemological Institute of America, the world’s largest grading laboratory.
After the diamond goes through a grading process and receives a unique identification number it gets sent back to the retailer with a report. However, it’s important to note that grading labs often vary in their grading structure criteria. Their quality control, standards, and grading criteria can all differ. They are not held to any objective standard.
Because it’s like comparing apples to oranges, having a certificate does not denote a better quality diamond from one that is not certified. Certificates can, however, be a useful tool when it comes to shopping for diamonds. You really just want to take your time when shopping for diamonds. And don’t buy a diamond without doing your homework.
