A diamond engagement ring is one of the most important – and often one of the largest – purchases you will make in your life so you will want to be sure you do it right. It’s important to understand what the 4 primary characteristics (known as the 4C’S: cut, color, clarity, carat) are when you’re searching for the perfect ring.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be shedding some light into the 4C’s with a series of infographics with all the important information you should know.
Let’s start with CLARITY!
Many people are familiar with cut and carat, but know less about color and clarity. Clarity is an important characteristic to understand because it plays an important role in the look and price of the diamond, so it certainly pays to learn a little about it so you can get the best stone for your money.
Check out the infographic below that outlines what diamond clarity is, types of flaws diamonds have, and a diamond clarity chart to help you better understand the grade of stone in relation to its imperfections (or lack thereof).
