The Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight of a diamond are collectively termed the 4Cs. These are the factors that, when combined together, define a diamond’s quality and ultimately determine its value. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) created these 4Cs of diamond quality, which has become the universal method for assessing the quality of any diamond. The creation of the 4Cs means that diamond quality can be communicated in a universal language so that as a buyer you know exactly what you are buying.
