THE 4 C's
When you talk diamonds, the four C's are always used to describe their characteristics.
The cut of a diamond describes the angles to which it is cut. Good workmanship allows the diamond to reflect more light. In short - the better the cut the more the diamond sparkles.
It is sometimes confused with the “shape”
Diamonds come in various colors but most diamonds found in jewellery stores run from colorless to near-colorless, with slight hints of yellow. The industry standard scale for measuring color begins with the letter D, representing colorless, and continues with increasing presence of color to the letter Z.
