PROPERTIES OF THE DIAMOND : THE 4 C's
les_4_C "The world is filled with a multitude of wonderful things, but most of them are short-lived. The dew and the jonquil, the rainbow and the butterfly last a few moments or a few days then disappear and only the memory stays. But precious stones, more than anything else, easy on the eye; they last eternally."

After the reading of this guide, you will be able to choose your diamond.
INTRODUCTION TO THE 4C's
The “4C’s” is a method which allows us to estimate stones according to 4 main quality criteria :
- the "cut" of the diamond, - the "color" of the diamond,
- the "clarity" of the diamond, - the "carat weight" of the diamond.
4C’s offer us a starting point to estimate a diamond. The higher the ranking of the stone in those categories is, the bigger is its value.
The CUT The COLOR The CLARITY The CARAT

Nature determines the purity of a rough diamond, its weight, its colour. It is in the hands of the man that the “fire of the stone” is made, its brightness, its beauty. When a diamond is cut in the optimal proportions – not too deep or to narrow- the reflected light inside the stone is as a mirror facet and the light glistens with the surface. The basic color, which is visible, is called “tint”; its brightness or its opacity determines the “tone” and the saturation indicates its intensity. The ideal combination is a frank tint, without mixture, vivid saturation and a “pleasant” tone. Because each diamond is unique. The purity relates to the clarity and indicates the degree of transparency. She is estimated according to the presence of external imperfections, defects or cracks on the surface and with inclusions inside the stone. These natural elements appear during the crystallization process. The word carat comes from the word “qirat”, the Arabic name given to the seeds of the carob tree, historically known for their weight and their constant cut. A carat will become a unit of measure which equivalent weight is about 0,20 grams. Because diamonds with a high weight are rarer than young, the price increases in an exponential way according to the sizes.
