The 4Cs – Clarity, cut, carat and colour are important when buying Diamonds. The most valuable white Diamonds are those that possess the best of all 4Cs. Take this into consideration when buying a Diamond or buying your very special engagement ring. A smaller pure white will have a greater value than a white rock with inclusions.
Let’s cut to the chase, do you want a rock that looks good or a dazzling stone that is pure? The more brilliant diamond is smaller but is valuable because it is so brilliant. The larger diamond is valuable because it is large, but is worth less per carat because it is not so brilliant. Once you know how diamond grading works, it’s just a matter for you to decide what is best for you
