The 4Cs: Color, Clarity, Cut, Carat

Don’t overpay for average. Every diamond is a personal mission. Finding the right diamond is all about rarity and value. Diamond quality is measured by the 4Cs:

  • Color
  • Clarity
  • Cut
  • Carat Weight

The four standards are like the equalizer to a stereo. We can move the components to find the exact match you want in a diamond, and Andy’s responsibility is to guide you through the process to find the diamond that maximizes your budget.

Color

Clarity

Diamond clarity quantifies the internal and external characteristics of a diamond.

Cut

The diamond cut grade measures how well the diamond’s facets interact with light.

Carat Weight

The carat is the actual weight of a diamond.

We only sell natural, untreated diamonds, and we will never sell anything that is in conflict with our morals or beliefs. We source our diamonds from US distribution centers that follow the Kimberley Process, a joint governments, industry, and civil society initiative to stem the flow of conflict diamonds. Our diamonds are conflict-free. Browse our ethical engagement rings online or visit us in the store.
