The Bigger Diamond is not always Better
Diamonds Article by: DiamondonNet 10-29-2007
Buying a diamond is complicated. You must constantly make important decisions throughout the purchasing process.

Diamond quality is a critical factor. With a set budget, you must determine how to spend your money. Do you want a lower-quality, larger diamond? Or, do you prefer a flawless, smaller stone?

All diamonds share common features. The jewelry industry utilizes the Four C’s: cut, color, carat and clarity, to determine a stone’s quality.

A high-quality, white diamond will possess no color. Most stones have traces of very faint yellow or brown color.

Large, flawless, white diamonds are extremely rare and have a greater value per carat. For that reason, the price of a diamond rises exponentially with its size.

Clarity measures a diamond’s purity. It refers to the presence of identifying characteristics on and within the stone. These imperfections or inclusions are measured from internally flawless to imperfect.

Most stones have some color gradation and inclusions. It is difficult to cut a large diamond without any imperfections and most flawless gems are smaller in size.

Which of the Four C’s is most important is a matter of taste. In most cases, a smaller diamond that is more masterfully cut, with greater clarity and color, will be more brilliant than a larger stone of the same price.

For a diamond to be most beautiful must be of high quality in all aspects. The professionals at DiamondonNet.com can help visitors find their ideal diamond.
