Knowing where to start when buying a diamond can be a little bit daunting.
But don't worry, the team at TIAGO are here to help and inform you on all the important areas.
From different diamond shapes, sizes, colours, cuts and prices.

Helping You Choose Your Diamond | THE 4 C's

A diamond’s overall aesthetic is determined by a combination of their four quality characteristics, known as the 4 Cs (cut, clarity, colour and carat weight).
When choosing a diamond, focus on the quality that’s most important to you, then work to balance the remaining three for the perfect choice.
 Just because a diamond is bigger, doesn’t mean it’s better. 
The average high street diamond grade is a H | SI1 

CUT

A diamond’s cut is crucial to the stone’s final brilliance. The key to desirable fire and brilliance in a diamond is proportion.
A well cut diamond allows light to reflect
maximising its brilliance and sparkle.

CARAT

Diamonds and other gemstones are weighed in metric carats: one carat is equal to 0.2 grams.
(Don’t confuse carat with karat, as in “18K gold,” which refers to gold purity.)

A carat is divided into 100 points. For example, a 50-point diamond weighs 0.50 carats.
But two diamonds of equal weight can have very different values depending on the other members of the Four C’s: clarity, colour and cut.

CLARITY

While diamonds are forming deep in the earth, they develop natural birthmarks – slight irregularities and features
that are visible to a skilled grader under 10x magnification. These are collectively known as “Inclusions”.
The fewer inclusions the rarer the stone becomes.

COLOUR

 Diamonds are graded from D {colourless} to Z {light yellow}.
The closer the diamond is to no colour, the rarer and more valuable it becomes.
