Everything you need to know to buy your significant other diamond earrings or a diamond ring!

To standardize descriptions of every diamond's characteristics, a language known as the 4Cs was developed and this is now universally spoken in the diamond world. Each of the four C's describes a diamond's specific characteristics. This will apply to any diamond earrings regardless of whether you decide to go with white gold, rose gold or platinum. The combination of these four elements gives a diamond its unique specification and forms of basis for its valuation.

Naturally-occurring features known as inclusions provide a special fingerprint within every diamond. Each of these factors will play a role in the final cost of your purchase however making an informed decision and purcasing from a trusted source like the NYC Diamond District will ensure you get the diamond studs for the price. Usually invisible to the naked eye, these tiny features are minerals which appeared while the diamonds were forming in the earth's core. A diamond's clarity refers to how free a diamond is from these tiny blemishes and inclusions. While they may appear to be yet another pair earrings, your significant other will know the nuances and differences between every pair.

Diamonds without features are rarer and so more expensive but small inclusions do not affect the beauty or the brilliance of a diamond. Polished Diamonds are graded for minute variations in color. From colorless to light yellow and light brown, this is universally known as the D-Z color scale. In this scale, colorless diamonds D, E, and F, show so little difference that it takes an expert to distinguish one from another. Carat is a measure of weight equivalent to 200 milligrams.
