A Look at Diamond Grading

A Look at Diamond Grading

Diamonds are one of the most precious and popular gemstones in the world, and for good reason. Each one is unique and can make a breathtaking engagement ring. Watch this video to learn how diamonds are graded before you go shopping for an engagement ring in Chicago.

Although diamonds may be small, there is a great deal of variation that can exist within each one. Diamonds are graded based on the "Four Cs," which stand for color, clarity, cut, and carat. A custom jeweler will examine a diamond before it goes into an engagement ring or other jewelry to determine all four of these ratings. Special equipment is used to examine each diamond under magnification, where even the smallest imperfections can be seen. Many of the flaws that can be seen with a jeweler's tools are not noticeable to the naked eye, which is something to keep in mind when you are shopping for diamonds.
