Knowing Your Diamond Ring: The 4 C's

By now, we've already established that using RockHer's AI-enhanced diamond search makes buying a diamond easier than ever. But it certainly doesn't hurt going in knowing what you're shopping for. So we're giving you an overview of the 4 C’s- cut, carat, color, and clarity- below.

First up is cut, which many diamond experts consider to be the most important of the 4 C’s. Cut shouldn’t be confused with shape, which is the shape of the diamond (like “round,” “oval,” or “princess”). Cut is actually a grading of how well a diamond was cut. Why do experts say this is the most important of the four C’s to know when buying a diamond? Because how well a diamond is cut affects how well it captures light. So a well cut diamond will sparkle beautifully, while a poorly cut diamond will look dim and dull.

Next we have carat, which is actually a weight measurement. Many people think carat weight means carat size, or the diamond’s size, but it doesn’t. Carat weight can give you a good idea of a diamond’s carat size, though, because the more it weighs, the bigger it’ll be! A 5 carat diamond will surely be a lot larger than a 1 carat diamond.

Third up is color. For diamonds, the best color grading is D, which means it’s totally colorless. The higher the color grade, the more colorless the diamond. (Pro tip: for white diamonds, the less color- the better!)

Last but not least in our four C’s overview, we have diamond clarity. Clarity is a grading of how flawless a diamond is. Diamonds can have internal or external flaws which can sometimes be seen with the naked eye, making the diamond look less beautiful. So the higher the clarity grading, the more flawless your diamond is.

Now that you have this info, rest assured ROSI will help you eliminate any defects not seen to the naked eye as you search. After all, you deserve to take home a real winner in your diamond ring!
