Wala Gems shares its knowledge and expertise about factors that affects its valuation. A diamond quality and value is judged on four fundamental characteristics known as 4 C's .These are Carat weight, Clarity, Color and Cut. The creation of the Diamond 4Cs meant two very important things: diamond quality could be communicated in a universal language, and diamond customers could now know exactly what they were about to purchase.
Clarity refers to the presence or absence of impurities, blemishes or other identifying characteristics within a diamond. Natural diamonds are the result of carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep in the earth. This process can result in a variety of internal characteristics called 'inclusions' and external characteristics called 'blemishes.'
Clarity characteristics are what make each diamond unique, since there are no two diamonds that will have the same exact inclusions in the same location. Evaluating diamond clarity involves determining the number, size, relief, nature, and position of these characteristics, as well as how these affect the overall appearance of the stone. While no diamond is perfectly pure, the closer it comes, the higher its value.
