The 4 `C`s of Diamond Quality

Clarity - The Clarity of a Diamond refers to its optical quality. Grading is based on size, number and position of any internal or external flaws or imperfections, using a standard Clarity Grading systems.

Colour - The Colour in Diamonds ranges from totally Colourless through a progression of tinted and lighter colours to fully saturated Fancy Colours. In Colour grading the Yellow or Cape Series is used as a basic standard.


Cut - The Cut or 'make' of a Diamond refers both to its Shape and its Facet Style. The Quality of the Cut essentially determines the Light Performance of a Diamond and can have the greatest effect on its value.

Carat - The Carat (Metric Carat) is the standard International unit of weight for Diamonds, Coloured Gemstones and Pearls. The word Carat comes from the ancient Greek name for the Carob Seed which, due to its consistent weight, was once widely used as a counterweight for weighing Diamonds and Gemstones.

Care and Cleaning your Diamonds
         
Diamonds are the hardest substance on earth. They are uniquely resistant to damage by heat or scratching, and can be cut or polished only by another diamond, but an extremely hard blow to the girdle can cause a diamond to
chip. By having your diamond set in a relatively protective setting, and remaining conscious of it on your finger, you can keep your diamond intact for a lifetime. Exposure during ordinary wear to perspiration and household
chemicals, like chlorine and hairspray, can cause build-up that dulls the surface of a diamond. we suggest periodic cleanings to keep the diamond brilliant and refractive.

A solution of one part ammonia and six parts water can be used to clean diamond jewellery at home.
 
If cleaning by hand, gentle scrubbing with a soft brush should loosen most dirt and greatly increase the brilliance of the diamond, but be careful not to scratch the metal of your setting.
         
Once a year, it is a good idea to have your diamond cleaned and have the security of the setting checked by a professional
