The amazing findings in nature called diamonds

In the diamond industry, there are many loose diamonds available but every diamond quality is different. Diamonds are natural miracles made by nature. People have admired diamonds for a very long time. It symbolizes strength, wealth or royalty. However, a diamond is also a unique gift for the one you love. The formation of each diamond is different, therefore diamond quality can be graded excellent or poor. Depending on the grading, the value of the diamond can be high or low. Only colored diamonds have a different grading system to determine the diamond quality. The most used way to grade a diamond is the well-known 4C’s (carat, clarity, color, cut).

Grading diamond quality

Grading diamond quality is different for colored diamonds or colorless diamonds. Because colorless diamonds are graded valuable if the color is not there. But a colored diamond is more valuable if the color is very intense. Thus, diamond quality depends on the way they are graded and the type of diamond.

Grading of colored diamonds
The diamond quality of a colored diamond is graded by looking at the hue, saturation, tone, and distribution. The hue of a diamond refers to the dominant color in the diamond that can be seen the face on. These colors can be pink, yellow, blue, green or red. The saturation of a colored diamond describes the strength/intensity of the color in the hue color. This can be faint or very intensive. Diamond quality of a colored diamond is also distribution, or how evenly color is spread in the diamond. In addition, the tone of a diamond sets diamond quality. Tone represents how light or dark a diamond can appear. Thus, if the distribution, saturation, hue, and tone is graded high, diamond quality of the colored diamond is good.

Grading of colorless diamonds
Colorless diamonds are graded in a very different way than colored diamonds. Colorless diamonds are more valuable if there is no color in the diamond. In a GIA certificate, a colorless diamond will be graded as D color which means colorless. However, diamond quality for colorless diamonds is mainly graded by the popular 4Cs. Thus, carat, clarity, cut and color can determine diamond quality together with some other factors.

Purchasing a diamond with quality

Since all diamonds have another diamond quality it is important to inform yourself on the grading basis. Because buying a diamond can be a true investment since the value of a diamond is fixed and will only grow over the years.
