    The clearer the diamond that looks, the better and more expensive it will be. But such diamonds are rarely found. The diamond with the best clarity is given an internally flawless (IF) grade. We must check the grade before we buy it.

    I love the chart of that 4c. It is colorless, almost yellowish, and pale yellow in color. A good diamond is considered to be the one whose color is pale. In this sense, the best diamond is the one that is completely colorless.

    The colorless diamond is the ideal choice. It’s a perfect fit with everything and the carat weight refers to the size of the diamond. This guide is really helpful for buyers.

    Delicately scouring a piece of sandpaper on a genuine diamond will have no evil consequences for it. We must be careful while purchasing diamonds and we should purchase from a trusted dealer only.
