If you’re looking for an engagement ring, diamonds are a popular choice and one of the most sought after gemstones due to their durability and unrivalled brilliance! When shopping for diamond rings, the common terminologies you need to know are the 4Cs of a diamond – cut, colour, clarity and carat. Having a grasp of these terminologies will easily aid you in your diamond choice.
When talking about the cut of a diamond, other than the shape, it also entails the symmetry, polish and proportion that create the sparkle. Clarity measures how pure and rare the diamond is, while colour is the diamond’s natural tint. Last but not least, carat size refers to the weight of the diamond and not its physical size. A larger carat weight typically equates to a more valuable diamond. If you need assistance understanding the 4Cs, feel free to approach our friendly Love & Co. consultants.
