You step into the gallery. Hundreds of diamonds are brightly illuminated, each one displayed proudly within a pristine glass case. The room is luxurious and teeming with the glimmer of precious stones. Is there anything more magical than bringing home a diamond? These delicacies represent love, longevity and beauty in a powerful way, but buying a diamond can be an overwhelming experience.
Cut, colour, clarity and carat – there is a lot to think about. But don’t fret, Infiniti Jewels has been working with diamonds for nearly three decades, and we want to guide you through one of the most meaningful purchases of your life.
Many assume that a diamond's cut only references its shape. In reality, the cut determines the amount of light that enters the diamond. Only a perfected cut will glimmer and shine.
Clarity refers to the inclusions (natural marks) inside a diamond.
The most common inclusions are:
Feathers - small cracks
Crystals - small crystalline structures inside the diamond
Clouds - a group of inclusions that give a cloud-like appearance
Professionals use a scale to determine the value of a diamond based on the number of inclusions.
On the Normal Colour Range for diamonds, diamonds are based upon alphabetical letters. The range begins with D color, which is the most transparent. The range continues to Z color, which is light yellow. The higher the color,
the more rare the diamond is.
Carat refers to the size and weight of a diamond. Compared to cut, color and clarity, it is the least important variable when analyzing a diamond's beauty. The higher the carat weight, the more rare the diamond is.
