The 4C's of Diamond Quality
Diamonds are quality graded by a universally understood method called the 4Cs which stands for Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat weight. By using this well understood system, one can understand the overall quality components of their diamond and have an effective means to communicate it in a clear standardized way. Watch the Gemological Institute of America's (GIA) video to learn more about each of the 4Cs.
