Understanding Diamond’s 4c’s
The 4 C's of diamonds are the four main factors that determine the quality and value of a diamond.
These factors are carat, cut, colour, and clarity. Understanding these factors can help you make informed decisions when purchasing a diamond, whether it be for a piece of fine jewellery or an engagement ring.
Carat refers to the weight of a diamond and is often used as a measure of size. A diamond's weight is expressed in carats, with one carat being equal to 0.2 grams. At Mouza Fine Jewellery, we carefully select diamonds that meet strict standards for carat weight to ensure that our customers are getting the best value for their money.
Cut refers to the way in which a diamond has been shaped and polished. A diamond's cut can range from excellent to poor, with excellent cuts reflecting the most light and appearing the most brilliant. At Mouza Fine Jewellery, we only use diamonds that have been expertly cut to ensure that they are as beautiful and brilliant as possible.
Colour refers to the absence or presence of colour in a diamond. Diamonds are graded on a scale from D to Z, with D being the highest and most valuable grade because it represents a diamond with no visible colour. At Mouza Fine Jewellery, we carefully select diamonds that have a high colour grade to ensure that they are as pure and white as possible.
Clarity refers to the presence or absence of blemishes and inclusions in a diamond. Inclusions are internal imperfections, while blemishes are external imperfections. Diamonds are graded on a scale from IF (internally flawless) to I3 (included), with IF being the highest grade and representing a diamond with no visible inclusions or blemishes. At Mouza Fine Jewellery, we only use diamonds that have a high level of clarity to ensure that they are as rare and beautiful as possible.
In addition to meeting strict standards for the 4 C's, we also work with trusted diamond certification organizations such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the International Gemological Institute (IGI), and the Hoge Raad voor Diamant (HRD) to ensure the quality and value of our diamonds.
We pride ourselves on offering only the finest diamonds to our customers and strive to provide them with the best possible shopping experience.
