- Clarity is a measure of the number and size of the tiny imperfections that occur in almost all diamonds.
- Many of these imperfections are microscopic, and do not affect a diamond’s beauty in any discernible way.
Much is made of a diamond’s clarity, but of the Four Cs, it is the easiest to understand, and, according to many experts, generally has the least impact on a diamond’s appearance. Clarity simply refers to the tiny, natural imperfections that occur in all but the finest diamonds. Gemologists refer to these imperfections by a variety of technical names, including blemishes and inclusions, among others. Diamonds with the least and smallest imperfections receive the highest clarity grades. Because these imperfections tend to be microscopic, they do not generally affect a diamond’s beauty in any discernible way.
WHICH CLARITY DIAMOND IS RIGHT FOR ME?
- Select an “eye-clean” diamond – one that has no imperfections visible to the unaided-eye through the crown. An excellent value, diamonds of this clarity are much less expensive than flawless (FL) to Very Very slightly included (VVS1) diamonds, which are extremely rare and command higher prices.
- Frequently, imperfections in diamonds graded slightly included (SI1/2) are not visible to the unaided eye, making them an excellent value for money. If you’re considering a diamond with an SI1/2 clarity grade, you can speak to our customer care assistant to guide you towards choosing the best one from our available stock.

- Cut is a diamond’s most important characteristic.
- It has the greatest overall influence on a diamond’s beauty.
- It determines what we generally think of as sparkle.
As a Expert gemologists, We recommend selecting the highest cut grade within your budget. The reason is simple: of the Four Cs, no other characteristic has a greater influence on a diamond’s appearance.
A diamond’s cut grade is an objective measure of a diamond’s light performance, or, what we generally think of as sparkle. When a diamond is cut with the proper proportions, light is returned out of the top of the diamond (which gemologists refer to as the table). If it is cut too shallow, light leaks out of the bottom; too deep and it escapes out of the side.
WHAT CUT GRADE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
For the best possible cut, look for the Ideal or Excellent Cut. Each higher cut diamond is hand-selected and cut to the most exacting standards, guaranteeing one of the finest cuts available in the world. Diamonds with a cut grade of good or very good represent an excellent combination of beauty and value.
WHAT ARE OTHERS ARE OFFERING?

Every diamond clarity/quality has its own price, so 98% customer who buy seeing picture only, is fooled here. So its requested you must buy from genuine sellers and make sure what you are buying.
We offer from Ideal Cut to Good cut of loose diamonds, depicting the truth that every quality has its price and value.
A unit of weight for a diamond. Equivalent to 200 milligrams, or one-fifth of a gram.
- Carat is specifically a measure of a diamond’s weight, and by itself may not accurately reflect a diamond’s size.
- We tend to evaluate diamond size by viewing it from the top because that is how diamonds are presented to us when set into a ring.
- To understand diamond size, carat weight should be considered in conjunction with two other criteria:
- Distance in millimeters across the top of the diamond.
- Diamond’s cut grade.
DIAMOND CARAT SIZE CHART
This print out illustrates how diamonds of different carat weights and shapes will appear when viewed from the top down.
Your diamond may differ from the printout in length/width ratio, table, and depth.
As the name suggests, carat weight specifically refers to a diamond’s weight.
However, much as a person’s weight does not necessarily correlate with height, carat weight, by itself, may not accurately reflect a diamond’s size. To gain a precise understanding of diamond size,
RRP Diamonds recommends considering carat weight with two other characteristics: 1) the distance across the top of the diamond measured in millimeters, and 2) the diamond’s cut grade.
It is important to measure the distance across the top of the diamond as this is how we view a stone when set into a ring.A diamond’s cut grade should also be considered because, as we noted in the cut grade section, when a diamond is cut with the proper proportions, the maximum amount of light (or sparkle) is returned out of the top of the diamond. Thus, when a diamond is well cut, the light reflected out of the top makes it appear larger.
In addition, much of the weight of a poorly cut diamond, for example, may be “hidden” in the base of the diamond, making the diamond appear smaller than its carat weight would imply.It is therefore possible to have a diamond of a lower carat weight, but higher cut grade, that appears larger than a diamond with a larger carat weight, but poor cut.
Once you’ve selected your cut, color, and clarity grade, it’s easy to determine the carat weight of diamond that will fit within your budget.Much as there are 100 pennies in a dollar, a one-carat diamond is comprised of 100 points. Hence, 50 points is equal to 1/2-carat, and so on.
- What Carat Weight Is Right For Me?
- To choose the best carat weight of diamond, consider the size of her finger, the size of your setting, and your budget.
- If a large carat weight is important to you, yet you’re working within a strict budget, consider a diamond with a good cut, SI1-SI2 clarity, and an I or J color grade.
- Diamond prices jump at the full- and half-carat weights. Diamonds just below these weights cost significantly less, and, because carat weight is distributed across the entirety of the diamond, small size differences are almost impossible to detect.
- Keep in mind that the smaller the finger, the larger the diamond will appear. A 1.5-carat diamond solitaire looks much larger on a size 4 finger than a size 8.
- Not all settings will fit all diamond carats or shapes. If you have already selected a setting, check the diamond specifications of your ring or ask your Us for help. If you need a special jewelry piece created, RRP Diamonds can accommodate almost any request.
Color manifests itself in a diamond as a pale yellow. This is why a diamond’s color grade is based on its lack of color. The less color a diamond has, the higher its color grade. After cut, color is generally considered the second most important characteristic when selecting a diamond. This is because the human eye tends to detect a diamond’s sparkle (light performance) first, and color second.
- Color refers to a diamond’s lack of color, grading the whiteness of a diamond.
- A color grade of D is the highest possible, while Z is the lowest.
- RRP Diamonds only sells diamonds with a color grade of K or higher.
A grade given to a diamond to describe the subtle tones of color in a stone. D is perfectly colorless, the most rare and expensive color. As you go from D to Z on the normal color scale, it indicates increasing levels of yellow and/or brown tones. It takes a trained eye under special lighting to distinguish between neighboring color grades (such as E to F), but most people can discern the difference between colors that are several grades apart (such as E to H) with a little practice.
- At RRP Diamonds, you’ll find only the finest diamonds with color graded D-K. Diamonds graded K or better are colorless or near-colorless, with color that is typically undetectable to the unaided eye.
