Choosing the Right Diamond
You have probably heard of the 4Cs (cut, color, clarity and carat) which are a part of the official diamond grading system. The 4Cs are way to compare the value of the diamond and the quality.
Here is a quick run down of the 4Cs:
The cut refers to the stone’s shape, polish and facet. The cuts are graded from excellent to poor using GIA Standards. There are 3 factors when determining a cut : proportion, symmetry, and polish. When a diamond is cut into a specific shape it’s done under parameters to maximize the stone’s sparkle.
The weight of the diamond is measured in carats. The average size of an engagement ring is one carat. Carats can also be measured in points; 100 points equals a full carat.
Diamonds are a work of nature. Even the most beautiful looking diamonds have flaws. In fact only about 2% of the world’s diamonds are flawless. The are five main grades of Clarity, from flawless to detectable. The fewer, and less visible flaws, the higher the price.
Diamonds come in a spectrum of shades with the most rare being colorless. The color grade ranges from D (Colorless) to Z (unmistakably yellow in color). However, over the years, pink, chocolate, and yellow diamonds have grown in popularity. For those diamonds, the more saturated color, the more valuable.

How to Find Your Ring Size?
- Wrap string around the base of your finger
- Use a pen to mark the point where it ends
- Measure the string with a ruler (mm)
- Pick the closest measurement on the ring
- The ring should fit comfortably: snug enough to stay on securely but loose enough to easily slide over your knuckle.
- If your knuckle is bigger than the base of your finger, measure both areas and pick a size in between the two.
- Fingers can change size throughout the day. It is best to measure your size at the end of the day.
- Measure the inside of a ring you already have that fits comfortably
