Note To Jewelry Lovers: Bigger Diamonds Aren’t Always Better

When we speak of diamonds, most people tend to think that the bigger the diamond, the better. But in the world of diamonds, that isn’t always necessarily the case.

The carat weight is what determines the size of the diamond. However, it is arguably the least important attribute (of the 4Cs) one should look at when purchasing jewelry adorned with diamonds. Clarity, color, and cut can make a smaller-sized diamond outshine a larger one.

CUT is what gives a diamond its sparkle

The way a diamond is cut determines the quality of its angles, brilliance, value, and ability to sparkle. If a diamond is big in size but is cut in a way that hinders its sparkling effect, it is not worth investing much in it.

The “round brilliant” cut is said to be the most popular.

COLOR is what determines a diamond’s value

The more colorless a diamond is, the more valuable it is. This is mainly due to the fact that colorless diamonds are extremely rare.

Diamonds are usually assigned a grade that starts at D (the most colorless grade) and runs through the alphabets until Z (the lowest grade which is normally yellow, brown or grey). Most diamonds sold range between F and J and hover in the colorless to near-colorless scale.

CLARITY is everything

Diamonds, as they are formed under the earth, come with impurities. “Clarity” looks at these impurities and determines a diamond’s value and final price. A diamond with many inclusions is one that will be sold at a lower price as its beauty is perceived to be “flawed.”

Would you rather invest in a small, sparkly, colorless, and clear diamond or a big, dull, and flawed stone? The choice is yours, but we’ve done our part to inform you of the elements you should be looking for when diamond shopping.
