The 4C’s :: Clarity

Jan 8, 2014

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.

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).
