As well as in the overview as in the detail pages showing the available diamonds, letters and numbers signify the diamonds' quality:
- CT is short for carat. This number provides information on the weight of a diamond: One carat equals 0.2 grams. While carat is not a direct measure for size, it surely provides information on how big a diamond is.
- D - Z: The color of a diamond is measured on a scale from D to Z. D means that the stone is perfectly colorless. Diamonds at the other end of the scale have a visible yellowish tint.
- F, IF, VVS, VS, SI, I: These abbreviations give information on the diamond's clarity. While no stone is absolutely perfect, such diamonds with the clarity grade F have no visible inclusions. Such with a lower clarity grade show tiny pieces of carbon that have not been turned into diamond.
By clicking on the GIA logo, you can see each diamond's certificate, which provides more detailed information on the quality. Here, also the cut grade is stated: While cut means the shape of a diamond, the cut grade measures how well it was cut: The cut quality is crucial for the stone's brilliance.
A diamond certification, best by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is absolutely necessary: It is the only way to be sure that a diamond has been traded ethically and under the conditions of the Kimberley Agreement. My Diamond Ring exclusively offers GIA certified diamonds.
