Cut

There is Cut. Then there's Cut.
Many people confuse cut with the shape of a diamond. Most diamonds are cut with a full 58 facets and a well cut diamond will have more sparkle and brilliance than a poorly cut diamond. The shape of the diamond, howeverm is largely a matter of personal preference. It is the work of a master cutter that allows the diamond to be cut in such a way as to permit the maximum amount of light to be reflected through the diamond which is a great reflection on you.

How a diamond handles light

 

 
diamond cut

 

1. When a diamond is cut to good proportions, light is reflected from one facet to another and then dispersed through the top of the stone.
2. If the cut of the diamond is too deep, some light escapes through the opposite side of the pavilion.
3. If the cut of the diamond is too shallow, light escapes through the pavilion before it can be reflected.

 

Colour
Good Colour is no Colour.
The best colour for a diamond is no colour. Because it is the totally colourless diamond that acts as a prism, allowing light to pass effortlessly through the diamond and be transformed into rainbows of colour.
 
Colour grading scale from totally colourless to light yellow. The differences between one grade and another are very subtle, as can be seen by the number of grades grades within any one category.

Clarity
Rarity.
Diamonds, more than any other gemstone, have the capability to produce the maximum amount of brilliance. A diamond that is virtually free of interior or exterior inclusions (commonly called flaws) is of the highest quality, for nothing interferes with the passage of light through the diamond. To determine a diamond's clarity, it is viewed under a 10x power magnification by a trained eye. Minute inclusions neither mar its beauty nor endanger its durability.

Carat-Weight
Bigger is Bigger (not necessarily better)
One carat is divided into 100 "points" so that a diamond of 75 points weighs 0.75 carats. Size is the most obvious factor in determining the value of a diamond. But two diamonds of equal size can have very unequal values, depending on their quality. Diamonds of high quality can be found in all size ranges.
