The sale value of a diamond depends on a variety of factors, like the quality of the stone and the current market value of the material. To determine the diamond’s quality, appraisers score it in four categories known as “the 4 C’s.”
These categories are:
- Cut: shape (heart, square, oval, etc.) and faceting
- Clarity: how clear the stone appears (clear = flawless, cloudy = flawed)
- Color: hue and richness (deep blue, pale yellow, etc.)
- Carat: weight and size
