  • Diamonds that are graded the highest in terms of cut will be the most expensive because of rarity value and the skill required of the cutter.
  • The sparkle of a diamond is determined by the quality of it's cut and not by it's shape. All diamonds have sparkle but those that have been graded the highest will emit optimum sparkle and scintillation
  • A diamond with a high colour grade will have little or no colour. A diamond is graded in respect of it's lack of colour, so a colourless diamond will be more expensive.
  • A My Diamonds Professional Diamond Specialist will be on hand to answer your questions and help you to prioritise the elements that will help you find the diamond that suits your budget and style. Please call us on 1800 766 567.
