You will know much from diamonds clarity but of all the 4 C’s it is easiest to understand. According to many experts diamond’s clarity has less impact on a diamond’s appearance. Clarity stands for the tiny imperfections that occur in all the finest diamonds. In technical names, Gemologists refer it as blemishes, inclusions, and many others. Diamonds with the least and smallest imperfections receive the highest clarity grades. As these imperfections tend to be microscopic they do not affect diamonds beauty anyway.

3. Diamond Cut

* A cut is diamonds Important characteristic.

* It has the greatest influence on diamonds beauty

* It determines what we generally think of as sparkle

As a Gemologist, I will recommend to you to select highest cut grade that fits your budget. The reason is simple: of the Four Cs, no other character has a greater influence on a diamond’s appearance.

A diamond’s cut grade is an aim measure of a diamond’s light performance, or, what we generally think of as sparkle. When the cut of a diamond is in proper proportion the light reflects out of the diamond. Gemologists prefer this as the table. If the cut is too shallow light leaks out of the bottom too deep and it escapes out of the side.

Which diamond cut grade is right for me?

4. Diamond Carat

A unit of weight for a diamond. Equal to 200 milligrams, or one-fifth of a gram.

* Carat is a measure of a diamond’s weight and by itself may not reflect a diamond’s size.

* We check diamond from the top because that is how diamonds look like to use when they are set in the ring.

* Consideration of diamonds weight is necessary if one wants to understand its size. Diamond conjunction with two other criteria is necessary as shown below.

  1. Distance in millimeters across the top of the diamond.
  2. Diamond’s cut grade.

Diamond Carat Size Chart.

diamond carat size chart

This print out illustrates how diamonds of different Carat weights will appear from the top.

Your diamond may differ from the printout in length/width ratio, table, and depth.

As the name suggests, Carat weight refers to a diamond’s weight. Diamonds Carat weight may not reflects the exact size of the diamond. Its the same as how humans weight is never compared with its height.  To gain a precise understanding of diamond size,

Gemone Diamonds recommends considering Carat weight with two other characteristics:

  1. The distance across the top of the diamond measured in millimeters.
  2. The diamond’s cut grade.

It is important to measure the distance across the top of the diamond as this is how we view a stone when set into a ring. Diamond cut is also taken into consideration. Because when the diamond cut is proper in proportion it reflects more amount of light from the top. Thus, when a diamond is well cut, the light reflected out of the top makes it appear larger.

Also much of the weight of the cut diamond, hidden in the base of the diamond. Making the diamond looks smaller from its actual Carat weight would imply. It is thus possible to have the diamond of a lower Carat weight but higher cut grade. That appears larger than a diamond with a larger Carat weight, but poor cut.

Once you are sure with your Cut, Color and Clarity grade it will become easy for you to choose your diamond. Much as there are 100 pennies in a dollar, a One Carat Diamond compromises of 100 points. Hence, 50 points are equal to 1/2-carat, and so on.

Which Carat Weight Is Right For Me?

  1. To choose the best Carat weight, consider the size of the finger, the size of your setting, and your budget.


  1. Are you looking for a Large Carat weight diamond? and Is it still not fitting into your budget? Then you must consider a diamond with good cut and SI1-SI2 clarity and in I or J Color grade.


  1. Diamond prices jump at the full and Half-Carat weights. Diamonds bellow this weight costs less. Small size differences are impossible to detect. As the distribution of Carat weight is the entire diamond.


  1. Keep in mind that the smaller the finger, the larger the diamond will appear. A 1.5-carat diamond solitaire looks much larger on a size 4 finger than a size 8.

Not all settings will fit all diamond Carats or shapes. If you have already selected a setting, check the diamond specifications of your ring or ask us for help. If you have any special jewelry customization request feel free to contact us. We can make almost every type of diamond jewelry designs.

Diamond Color

diamond color chart


Color manifests itself in a diamond as a pale yellow. This is why a diamond’s color grade depends on its lack of color. The less color a diamond has, the higher its color grade. After Cut, People consider color as the most important factor while selecting diamonds. This is because the human eye tends to detect a diamond’s sparkle first and color second.

– Color refers to a diamond’s lack of color, grading the whiteness of a diamond.

– A color grade of D is the highest possible, while Z is the lowest.

– Gemone Diamonds only sells diamonds with a color grade of K or higher.

A grade is given to a diamond to describe the subtle tones of color in a stone. D is colorless, the rarest and expensive color. As you go from D to Z on the normal color scale, it indicates increasing levels of yellow and/or brown tones. It takes trained eye under specialized lightning to distinguish between neighboring color grades. But most people can learn the difference between colors with a little practice. They can know the difference apart from several grades.

At Gemone Diamonds, you’ll find only the finest diamonds. One with color graded D-K. Diamonds graded K or better are colorless or near-colorless. And the one with color that is undetectable to the unaided eye.
