A key to knowing what you want is remembering the 4Cs of Diamonds— which is carat, color, cut, and clarity.
Carat is the diamond’s weight, color is graded from colorless to yellow, cut is how the diamond is fashioned to reflect light, and clarity determines any imperfections.
This knowledge will help when selecting diamonds because each gemstone has its own unique characteristics, setting the stone apart from the rest when set in earrings, a necklace, or a ring setting.
Finally, be sure to get a gemological certificate for the diamond, as this will provide information about the diamond in case something should happen to the jewelry.
