Do you have diamonds on your Christmas wish list? Let Riddle’s Jewelry help you find your perfect jewels this holiday season with an introduction to Diamonds: 101, all about the 4 C’s!

COLOR: A diamond’s color is categorized anywhere between colorless to light yellow, brown or gray. Very few diamonds show no trace of color at all. Diamonds with natural tints of other hues are classified as fancy colors.

CLARITY: A diamond’s freedom from blemishes on the surface and inclusions in the inside refers to its clarity. Almost all diamonds have clarity characteristics and the less prominent those characteristics are, the more valuable the diamond becomes.

CARAT WEIGHT: The standard unit of weight for diamonds is the metric carat. One carat equals 0.200 gram. Because of the rarity of bigger diamonds, they will cost much more than twice that of two diamonds half its size.

CUT: The term cut refers to a polished diamond’s shape and faceting style. The most popular cut is the round brilliant. The choice of cut often depends on personal preference.
