If you have planned already to buy a solitaire diamond which will remain as a coveted piece in the future always remember the 4 C’s, Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat.

Cut

The cut of a diamond is extremely important in determining you much light it will reflect or more so to say, shine. Go for those stones which are rated as good or excellent as the right cut speaks volumes about the quality of a diamond.

Color

Diamond color is something that you really need to look out for. It might vary from colorless to a yellowish tinge. The color of the diamond can be graded from letters D-Z. If you are choosing a round diamond lower grades might not be that visible to a trained eye, whereas in the princess or emerald cut, yellowish tints will become prominent.

Colorless While there are differences in color between D, E, and F diamonds, they can be detected only by a gemologist in side by side comparisons, and rarely by the untrained eye.D-F diamonds should only be set in white gold / platinum. Yellow gold reflects color, negating the diamond’s colorless effect.
Near Colorless While containing traces of color, G-J diamonds are suitable for a platinum or white gold setting, which would normally betray any hint of color in a diamond.Because I-J diamonds are more common than the higher grades, they tend to be a great value. An I-J diamond may retail for half the price of a D diamond. Within the G-J range, price tends to increase 10-20% between each diamond grade.
Faint Color Beginning with K diamonds, color (usually a yellow tint) is more easily detected by the naked eye.Set in yellow gold, these warm colored diamonds appeal to some, and are an exceptional value. Others will feel they have too much color. Due to its perceptible color tint, a K diamond is often half the price of a G diamond.
Very Light Color Diamonds in the N-R color range have an easily seen yellow or brown tint, but are much less expensive than higher grades.Lumera does not carry diamonds in this color range due to a lack of demand. If you desire a diamond in this range, request a price quoteusing the custom diamond search.
Light Color For almost all customers, S-Z diamonds have too much color for a white diamond.Lumera does not carry diamonds in this color range. If you desire a diamond in this range, request a price quote using the custom diamond search.

Clarity

While you are selecting the right diamond, look into its clarity. If impure, you will get to find the natural flaws. Diamonds in the SI range, looks clean and are not heavy for pocket like FL (Flawless) and IF (Internal Flawless). Check out the chart below to know about the clarity of diamond.

FL Flawless: No inclusions or blemishes are visible to a skilled grader using 10 x magnifications. Extremely rare, less than 1 in 5000 jewelry quality diamonds are rated FL.
IF Internally Flawless: No inclusions, only blemishes are visible to a skilled grader using 10 x magnifications. FL and IF diamonds appear identical unless viewed under 10x magnification by a skilled grader. Less than 3% of jewelry quality diamonds are rated IF.
VVS1
VVS2
Very, Very Slightly Included: Inclusions are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10 x magnifications. VVS1 inclusions are typically only visible from the pavilion, while VVS2 inclusions are visible from the crown. In each, the inclusions are invisible to the eye, appearing identical to the higher grades unless viewed under 10 x magnifications by a skilled grader.
VS1
VS2
Very Slightly Included: Inclusions are clearly visible under 10 x magnifications but can be characterized as minor. Inclusions are not visible to the naked eye. Perhaps 1 in 100 untrained observers can detect VS2 inclusions with the naked eye, on close inspection under ideal conditions.
SI1
SI2
Slightly Included: Inclusions are noticeable to a skilled grader using 10 x magnifications. SI1 is the lowest grade with flaws often invisible to the naked eye. SI2 inclusions are usually visible to the naked eye, although they will require close inspection.
I1
I2
I3
Included: Inclusions are obvious under 10 x magnifications and may affect transparency and brilliance. I1 diamonds have inclusions that are almost always visible to the naked eye.Because I2-I3 diamonds have pronounced inclusions, and in the case of I3 may even affect the diamond’s durability, they are not offered by Lumera.

Carat

Carat weight determines as to how big the stone will look. Half to one carat diamond will be the right option to choose. A carat weight difference of 10% or less is difficult to detect with visual impact. So select wisely.
