THE 4C's OF DIAMONDS
Diamonds are rare, precious stones that are ideal for heirloom pieces like engagement rings, however, not all diamonds are created equally. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA®), the world’s most-respected nonprofit source of gemological knowledge, has created a universal system for grading the authenticity and quality of diamonds based on the 4C’s: cut, clarity, color, and carat.
