What is a diamond ?

Originating from the Greek word “adamas”, the name diamond means “invincible””. A mineral composed of 99,95% carbon, the diamond is the hardest element on Earth. Formed at extreme underground depths under high pressure and temperatures, this gemstone is over a billion years old.

The 4Cs of diamond

Like every human being, each diamond is unique, with its own characteristics. In 1953, the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) established the 4Cs diamond grading system based on the four following criteria: cut, color, clarity, and carat. Today, this system is an internationally recognized standard for deciding the quality of a diamond.

Cut

As the most important criterion for the beauty and brilliance of a diamond, the cut maximizes its ability to interact with light. The cut is defined by the proportions, polish, and symmetry of the stone.

Carat

Carat is the unit of measurement for the weight of a diamond. The word “carat” originates from the carob seed, which was used as the standard for weighing precious stones in Antiquity.

One carat is equivalent to 0.2 grams.

Color

The second most important criterion of a diamond’s beauty is color: the natural hue of a white diamond, ranging from exceptional white (colorless) to light yellow.
The GIA has developed a color scale ranging from D (exceptional white) to Z (light yellow) in alphabetical order. The less color, the greater the diamond’s value.

Clarity

The majority of diamonds have natural imperfections called inclusions. The number of inclusions, their size and location determine the clarity of a diamond.

Clarity is analyzed under 10x magnification and graded by the GIA on a scale from FL (no internal inclusions and no external blemishes) to I3 (inclusions very easily visible to the naked eye).
