The Decadent Diva Does Diamonds..pt 2.... a series

Once you have the basics about the diamond cut.. now we can move on to the other C's....


According to Wikipedia...  "Diamond clarity is a quality of diamonds relating to the existence and visual appearance of internal characteristics of a diamond called inclusions, and surface defects called blemishes"  Diamonds that are clear create more brilliance, and thus are more highly prized, and priced.


Colorless diamonds are the most desirable since they allow the most refraction of light (sparkle). Off white diamonds absorb light, inhibiting brilliance.

Carat Weight

A carat is the unit of weight by which a diamond is measured. Because large diamonds are found less commonly than small diamonds, the price of a diamond rises immensely according to its size. 
Yes.. i love BIG diamonds!! 

So.. be a Diva about your diamonds and learn to respect the bling!
