In order to find the perfect diamond and create the ring of your dreams, you need to learn more about diamonds. We will start with the 4Cs or cut, color, clarity, and carat.

  • Cut is the most important element of the 4Cs because it has the greatest impact on a diamond’s shimmer and sparkle.
  • Color is the second most important element of the 4Cs and refers to the diamond’s lack of color. The less colorful the diamond is, the higher the grade.
  • Clarity is usually the least important element of the 4Cs as the tiny and not so noticeable imperfections are usually microscopic.
  • Carat refers to the weight of the diamond and not to its size.

Each diamond has its own shape and shape has various attributes that may affect the quality grade, as well as, the price of the diamond.

As one of the most popular fine jewelry stores and largest online diamond retailer, Brilliant Earth can offer you a large selection of the finest cut diamonds. All diamonds are chosen for exceptional quality, the cut, clarity, and color. The diamonds are evaluated based on an official and standardized grading scale and each diamond comes with a grading report from GIA.
