How to choose a diamond

Every diamond is rare and unique. The same parameters are used worldwide to value the quality of a diamond and certify its gemmological characteristics: the 4 Cs (colour, clarity, cut and carat weight).

Carat, cut, clarity and colour

The beauty of a gemstone depends on how it is cut, as this determines how the facets of the diamond react to light. Clarity relates to its transparency and rarity. The colour of a diamond refers to its natural tone: the more colourless the diamond, the rarer it is. Finally, carat indicates the weight of a diamond, not its size; one carat is equivalent to 0.20 grams.
