					                       Understanding The 4c Of Diamond Rings


There are various aspects which are to be considered before a diamond is chosen. Certain
merchants make sure that these aspects are explained to the customer before selling a
diamond. But it is always better for the customer to be aware of these details before going
for purchasing a diamond ring.

Some of the most beautiful diamonds available in the market these days satisfy the criteria
of certain standards marked by associations to be termed to one amongst the most
flawless. The aspects which are considered for standardizing are known as the 4Cs:

* Carat
* Color
* Clarity
* Cut

The carat is the most important aspect when a customer wants to buy Diamond Engagement
Ring. Just because a diamond is of larger carat it doesnt mean that the stone is of greater
quality this is common notion which is present by most common users. A diamond is
measured using the unit carat. Every 200 milligrams of a diamond is called a carat. Every
customer has to keep in mind the carat of the stone they want to buy.

Many wonder about the sparkle the diamonds give when they are shone and cut. But the
aspect which actually the sparkle is mainly diamonds color. This shows the diamonds true
grade and standard even if it has been falsely graded. A diamond engagement ring with
fabulous sparkle and color even if graded falsely will clearly show its true quality and it has
many qualities of illusions too. The best example for showing how a diamond ring can act
as an optical illusion is that an oval shaped loose diamond placed in a diamond eternity ring
can actually make the finger and the hand look more slender and beautiful.

When a diamond is very clear and flawless it tends to refract and reflect more light. Here the
light reflected is more prominent than the light reflected from a diamond which has color.
This does not mean that colored diamonds are less attractive but when designing a
Diamond Wedding Bands or a diamond stud for a special occasion customers prefer
colorless diamonds.
When special loose diamonds are used for designing diamond engagement rings, it is made
sure that the clarity of the diamond is checked. There are two types of preferences when a
diamond is chosen for such an important occasion. The first kind is when crystal clear
diamonds are chosen to symbolize the clarity of the future and bond between the couple.
The second kind is when diamonds are chosen for their lack of plainness and flaws are
seen as an integral part of a natural substance.

Though all the above specifications can make a loose diamond beautiful by itself, the Cut is
the most important aspect which makes the jewel look outstanding. Let the jewel be a
diamond stud or a diamond anniversary ring, only if the diamond being used is cut
accurately, it will look fabulous.

These are the 4Cs which are most important when choosing a diamond for a special
occasion and if these aspects are chosen properly the chances of choosing a dull diamond
is almost null.
