Have you decided the perfect engagement ring or wedding necklace design? Before you choose the wrong diamond for your right day, stop!
Here is a guide on the 4 most important Cs of diamond – cut, carat, clarity and colour!
A DIAMOND’S BRILLIANT CUT
People associate a diamond’s cut with its shape (round, heart, oval, marquise, or pear). But the cut grade is actually determined by how well the facets interact with light.
When buying a floating solitaire diamond necklace, the cut is the most important aspect to look at.
The diamond’s shine, or ability to return light to the eye, is totally determined by its cut (colour and clarity have no impact).
INTRODUCING THE NUE DIAMOND, AKA, FLOATING DIAMOND
“Nue Diamond”, which is also known as “Floating Diamond” or “Dancing Diamond” was born out of an innovative technology to bring the best shine in diamond, even for the small-sized ones. Instead of the traditional way of setting with prongs or crawls, the diamond is drilled with laser directly and set with a gold loop. The light then has no obstruction to enter the diamond at all angles, letting the diamond free to present its full brilliance. We have a wide collection of Nue Diamond [EMBED LINK] items at Khoé Jewellery.

A DIAMOND’S CARAT WEIGHT
The carat weight of a diamond is a measurement of how much it weighs.
Each carat is divided into 100 “points”. A jeweller can characterise a diamond’s weight below one carat solely by its “points.”
Two 1 carat diamonds can be fairly varied in size depending on their shape and how they are cut.
Furthermore, fancy shapes, especially when set in a halo setting, might appear larger than their real diamond carat weight size.
A 0.9 carat and 1 carat might look fairly the same but could have significant difference in the price. This is a special trick from jeweller who knows the price chart.
A DIAMOND’S COLOR
The absence of colour is used to assess the colour of most gem-quality diamonds. Like a drop of pure water, a chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond has no colour is colorless and thus a higher value.
Colours in diamonds are graded on a D-Z scale, with D denoting colourlessness (and hence the most valuable) and Z denoting a pale-yellow hue.
The hue of a diamond varies depending on the cut, carat weight, and form of the stone.
