The cut of a diamonds affects its sparkle by affecting the light falling on it. When a diamond has been cut correctly, light is reflected from one facet to another and then dispersed through the top of the stone. The cut can’t be too deep for fear of it escaping before or after it is reflected. However, it is important to note that the cut of a diamond is not the same as its shape. The most popular shapes that diamonds can be cut into are round, marquise, pear, emerald, oval and heart. No matter what the shape, it takes a master diamond cutter to make a well cute diamond.
Diamonds can be plenty in color; and can range from the faint yellows or browns to the supremely rare blues, greens and pinks among other colors, often also called “fancies.” It is said that the most suited color for a diamond is no color at all, since this enables the light to pass through easily ; thus making it sparkle a lot more. The colors of a diamond are graded from colorless to light yellow. The differences in the color of diamonds can only be spotted by a trained eye.
A diamond’s clarity is determined by using a 10-power magnifying glass and a trained eye. Most diamonds contain very tiny impurities know as “inclusions.” An inclusion can interfere with the light passing through the diamond. The fewer the inclusions, the more beautiful the diamond . Diamonds have the capability of producing more brilliance than any other gemstone. A diamond that is free of inclusions and surface blemishes is very rare and therefore very valuable.
This is the weight of a diamond measured in carats. One carat is divided into 100 “points,” so that a diamond of 75 points weights .75 ct. The carat-weight of a diamond is the easiest measurement to determine. Most importantly, two diamonds can be of equal carat-weight, but their value can differ greatly due to their cut, color, and clarity.
