The 4 C's Of A Diamond

As one of the best Jewellery Shops In Islamabad, Patiala Diamonds individually assesses the value of our Diamond Rings or other gorgeous pieces of Diamond Jewellery in accordance with GIA’s diamond grades. The 4 C’s that make up this grade – Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat – directly impact the value of individual diamonds and their incorporated prices.

When purchasing Diamond Jewellery for yourself or a loved one, consider what you admire in a Diamond - noting the colour, cut, and clarity as best you can. Patiala Diamonds will provide you with a Diamond Chart to elaborate on the value of your intended purchase, so you better understand the price of the item you want to take home.


The color value of your Diamond Necklace or Engagement Ring is actually found in color’s absence – that is to say, the Gem’s whiteness. Diamond Jewellery without any coloration looks as though it was formed out of water. GIA’s D-to-Z colour ranking emphasises this aesthetic, placing D color Diamonds at levels or near-perfection.


The GIA assessment susses out tiny differences that an untrained eye is otherwise unable to detect. With that said, it’s these small structural differences that control the Diamond Ring price. As with colour, GIA has developed a scale ranging from Flawless to Included in ranges of 1, 2, and 3. This range determines whether or not any inclusions are visible when the Gem is exposed to a loupe or microscope, and if those inclusions may ever become visible to the naked eye.


The cut of your Diamond Rings highlights the Gem’s primary shape, as well as its brightness, fire, and scintillation, or sparkle. A Triple Excellent Stone is the most sought after Diamond in the world that outmatches 99% of the worlds Diamonds because of its symmetry, cut & polish.


The Carat - or weight of the Diamond Rings you intend to bring home with you as Engagement Rings or an anniversary gift - weighs in at 200 milligrams. Jewellery stores break down the array of carats in Diamonds by placing them on a points system, which enables them to assess a Diamond’s weight to the hundredth decimal point. This point system accounts for the carat jargon you’ll hear in a Jewellery Store, but it also contributes to Diamond Ring prices around the world.
