Unique and precious. Only Mother Nature can make a natural diamond. Composed of crystallised carbon and is the hardest substance known to man. Helping to determine the value of each individual diamond, the four C’s are the measures by which diamond graders assess the variations in these stunning natural wonders. The first of the four C’s is COLOUR. Read more at jaa.com.au

Diamonds can be microscopically laser inscribed with the certificate/report number. In addition to the report helping to identify the stone, a laser inscription is a form of security, like a serial number.  Laser inscriptions are etched onto the stone’s girdle and do not damage the diamond or alter the colour or clarity in any way.  Laser inscriptions cannot be seen with the naked eye and require a small magnifying glass, known as a loupe, to see it.  Read more at jaa.com.au

Diamonds certificates (or reports) intend to quantitatively and qualitatively describe a diamond’s unique characteristics. A grading certificate/report should include a statement that the diamond is a natural diamond; a report number; accurate carat weight; shape and measurements; colour and fluorescence grade; clarity grade; cut grade (may not be applicable on fancy shapes); plot to show where inclusions are located and the types of inclusion; and...

Many goods are sold by weight—by the gram, kilogram, or ton. Though diamonds and other gemstones have their own form of measurement, carat (ct). The fourth of the 4 C’s is CARAT The carat weight measures the mass or size of a diamond and the value of a diamond increases exponentially in relation to carat weight. One metric carat is two-tenths (0.2) of a gram – about the weight of a small paperclip. The metric carat is divided into 100 points. A point is one hundredth of a carat... jaa.com.au

When a diamond interacts with light, every angle and every facet affects the amount of light returned to the eye.  A diamond’s proportions determine how light performs when it enters the diamond.  The third of the four 4 C’s is CUT  Cut (proportions, symmetry, polish) is a measure of how a diamond’s facets interact with light. These measures are rated from “excellent”, “very good”, “good”, “fair” to “poor”. The higher the cut grade, the brighter the diamond. Read more at jaa.com.au

Few things in nature are absolutely perfect. This is as true of diamonds as anything else. The second of the four C’s is CLARITY  Diamonds have internal features, called inclusions, and surface irregularities, called blemishes. They’re called clarity characteristics. Clarity assesses the number, size, type, position and visibility of inclusions and blemishes. Diamonds are graded from "flawless" (FL grade) to grades of IF, VVS, VS, SI and "included" (I or P grade). Read more at jaa.com.au
