of jewelers. Jared has a gallery of jewelries featuring diamonds, colored gemstones,

Gallery of Diamonds. Jared's Gallery of Diamonds features three major diamond
collections which are the Leo Diamonds, The Peerless Diamonds, and the Journey
Diamonds. Prices of Jared's diamonds range from $300 up to $20,000 depending on
the jewels' quality.
A family-owned company that has been handcrafting diamonds for four generations,
Leo Schachter supplies the Leo Diamonds. According to Jared Jewelers' designers, the
significance behind Journey Diamonds is the strength of love. They say that like wine,
love grows stronger and deeper as time passes by. This collection is distinguished by
the creative arrangement of multiple diamonds in a setting. On the other hand, The
Peerless Diamond is the collection of diamonds with the most précise cut. A
diamond's cut is one crucial factor in assessing the quality and value of a certain
diamond. Although cut is often misconstrued as shape, it is not. Shape only concerns
the outside boundaries of a diamond while cut refers to how light goes through the
diamond and how the diamond facets is able to reflect it to produce an attractive
A diamond's cut is just one factor in evaluating a diamond's worth. There are three
other categories in choosing diamonds. These categories describe the shape, features
and quality of the diamond. They are known as the Four Cs which comprised -- cut,
color, clarity and carat. It is important to understand the differences between these
categories because generally diamonds can look similarly the same. But based upon
these characteristics, you'll be able to know the real value of diamonds.
The first C would be Cut and has already been mentioned above. Color is the next.
Although diamonds display beautiful and extraordinary colors, diamonds are usually
rated on a scale of being colorless to yellow. Colorless diamonds are the most
expensive followed by yellow diamonds. So, how can you tell a diamond's color?
This is very easy -- a diamond always comes with a letter in accordance to the color
scale. Colorless diamonds would bear the letter D, E, and F. Letters G, Hi, I, and J
mean that the diamond is near colorless. Faint yellow diamonds will have K, L, and M
letters insignias, the letters N, O, P, Q, R is given to very light yellow diamonds and
light yellow diamonds are marked with S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z. The next important
C is Clarity. Clarity refers to how little or how much inclusions the diamond has.
Inclusions are inherent in diamonds. They are considered as diamonds' birthmarks.
Flawless diamonds are considered better. Last but not the least would be Carat. It is
the weight of the diamond. The heavier the diamond is, the higher the carat will be.
