For an in depth education, visit the GIA link. Especially their 4C demonstration!
Clarity: A flawless diamond has zero or almost impossible to see inclusions within its composition. Clarity is graded on the number, frequency, size and location of inclusions. The fewer imperfections, the greater the value of the diamond and the cleaner the diamond will have in appearance to the naked eye.
Cut: A diamond cut is the essential component of brilliance in how it reflects natural light and creates its magnificent sparkle.
When close to perfection the 4C’s makes any diamond prominent in any arrangement. Even though the color, clarity, and carat maybe close to perfect if the cut is fair or poor, then a diamond would seem pale or dull to the eye.
Color: The less color a diamond carries the rarer and the more sought after. The less color a diamond inherits the less hindrance to its brilliance.
Carat: Diamonds weight is measured in carats. The higher the carat size of a diamond the more valuable and rarer it becomes.
Understanding Precious Metals
METALS Platinum White Gold and Yellow Gold for Diamond Wedding Bands and Side Stone Settings
The jewelers at the Woodbridge Jewelry Exchange have handicraft some of the purest and finest quality platinum ore available. Platinum is the leading metal used in building jewelry pieces today. Platinum by far is rarer than gold and is said to be approximately 30 times harder to acquire. Platinum’s natural color is white, which can be polished to a high shine. Platinum metal is roughly 95% pure and weighs almost twice that of white or yellow gold. The famous trait about platinum is its durability over white and yellow gold. Most gold jewelry is crafted utilizing two standard grades, 14 Karat (KT) and 18 Karat (KT). But at some jewelers at the Woodbridge Jewelry Exchange display the rarer 24 Karat KT. Jewelry pieces are usually designed in white or yellow gold and many combinations thereof by using both metals. Gold is said to be the most malleable. Which means pure gold is the easiest to fashion and craft but also scratches very easily. Gold is sustainable to wear and tear over time. Karat is the term used for measuring the gold purity. Be careful not to confuse “Karat” (KT) used to measure gold purity with the term “Carat” which is used to measure a gemstone’s weight. One karat is equivalent to 1/24th the total purity of gold itself. Gold is defined in four different classes:
24 karat = 100% gold
18 karat = 75.0% gold – 18 parts gold, 6 parts other metals –
14 karat = 58.3% gold – 14 parts gold, 10 parts other metals –
10 karat = 41.7% gold – 10 parts gold, 14 parts other metals
Gold not only comes in white and yellow but also a variety of other colors are available, such as brown, green, rose (pink) and purple. These colors are achieved by mixing gold with other alloys such as copper, zinc and silver.
