Diamonds are judged using the 4Cs, carat weight, color, cut and clarity. Carat weight defines how big the diamond is and obviously, the bigger the diamond is, the costlier it is.

However, a flawless diamond is very rare and there are some ring settings which can easily hide minor flaws. The color of the diamond is judged on different grading. For the popular colorless diamonds, D,E and F are the three types while for the colored variations, here are 8 different grades from S to Z. Finally, the cut defines the price as some cuts are trickier and different cuts utilizes different percentage of the original stone.

Whatever design you choose, whether you purchase loose diamonds or set jewelry, always ensure that you are buying those from a reputed jeweler as the ring would be costly anyway. Ask for the diamond certificate as well, preferably issued by the GIA.
