Michael Wilson Diamond Jewellers specialises in engagement rings and fine diamond jewellery. A purchase of diamond jewellery is a significant event that requires an emotional connection with the piece that will express the wearer in a creative and individual way. Buying a diamond can be a daunting experience, but it doesn’t need to be. It is important to have a bright, quality diamond and the honest opinion of a passionate expert and jeweller.
All colourless diamonds are evaluated by considering the four following properties of each diamond, the Four Cs, Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat.
The most important property to a diamond is the Cut. The cut does not refer to the shape of the diamond, ie. whether it’s square or round, but how well it reflects the light and how much it sparkles. If not cut skillfully in the correct proportions a diamond will not reveal its full beauty.
Colour is also important and refers to how the diamond compares on a scale from colourless to slightly yellow. Ideally a diamond has no colour at all.
Clarity is the measure of a diamonds purity. All natural diamonds have traces of their growth history, as they are a product of nature. Ideally these inclusions are not visible to the naked eye.
Carat is the measurement of weight for the stone. 1 carat = 0.2 grams
