The 4 C’s of Diamonds
Want to get top dollar for your diamonds? You’ll have to understand the 4 C’s of Diamonds. According to the GIA, the 3 C’s of Diamonds include color, clarity, cut and carat. Below is an expert from the GIA’s official website that explains more:
- “Diamond Color In most diamonds, the term actually refers to the absence of color. The less color in the stone, the more desirable and valuable it is. Some of these differences are not visible to the naked eye, but directly impact the overall quality and price of the stone.
- Diamond Clarity measures the amount, size and placement of internal ‘inclusions,’ and external ‘blemishes.’ Grades run from ‘Flawless,’ with virtually no imperfections, to ‘Included,’ which contain a significant number of imperfections.
- Diamond Cut does not refer to a diamond’s shape, but to the proportion and arrangement of its facets and the quality of workmanship. The amount of brilliance, sparkle and fire in a diamond is determined by cut. Grades range from ‘Excellent’ to ‘Poor.’
- Diamond Carat refers to a diamond’s weight. Generally speaking, the higher the carat weight, the more expensive the stone. Two diamonds of equal carat weight, however, can have very different quality and price when the other three Cs are considered.”
Why a Grading Report is Important
A GIA grading report is a great way to understand the assessment of the 4 C’s and also help guarantee that your gemologist understands what they are doing. At Keno Bros. we buy diamonds certified by any reputable laboratory: GIA, AGS, EGL, AGL, IGL, GCI, GLA, UGL, certified diamonds, estate diamonds, canary, Tiffany and many more. If you don’t have a laboratory certification, our gemologists can provide this service. We are experts at evaluating and appraising diamonds.
Sell local, Make More Money
When you sell your diamonds in Fort Lauderdale to Keno Brothers, you cut out the middlemen and sell directly to the owners, which nets you a higher payment. Many of the diamonds we buy from the general public go directly into our estate jewelry collection, for sale to our own clients who want and need your valuables. We are also Power-Sellers on Ebay with a worldwide exposure; many of these purchased diamonds are placed into one of our many auctions. Thus, we are able to work much closer with both the sellers and the buyers.
Synthetic Diamonds vs. Simulant Diamonds
The Zebra reports, “To put it simply, diamond simulants are not diamonds. They mimic some of the characteristics of diamonds, but you are usually able to tell that they are fake. Synthetic diamonds, on the other hand, are diamonds. The only difference between a mined diamond and a ‘synthetic’ (or man-made) diamond is where they were created. A synthetic diamond, properly referred to as a lab-grown diamond, is created in a lab-setting utilizing advanced technology to mimic the processes that help form diamonds in nature.”
