What is a Diamond?

Diamond is a precious gemstone made of carbon that is prized for its beauty, rarity, and exceptional hardness. It is the hardest known natural material and has a unique crystal structure that gives it exceptional strength and durability. Diamonds are usually colourless, but can also occur in various shades of yellow, brown, and other colours.

In jewellery, diamonds are often used as a symbol of love and commitment, and are given as engagement or wedding rings. They are also prized for their ability to reflect and refract light in a way that gives them their characteristic sparkle and brilliance. Diamonds come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are typically evaluated based on the "Four Cs": cut, clarity, colour, and carat weight.

The history of diamonds dates back thousands of years, with the first recorded use of diamonds in jewellery dating back to ancient India. Over time, diamonds have become associated with wealth and luxury, and are often considered a symbol of success and status. Today, diamonds are mined in a number of countries around the world, with the largest diamond-producing countries being Russia, Canada, and Australia.

What are the Four Cs of diamonds and how do they affect the value of a diamond?

The Four Cs of diamonds are the four characteristics that determine the quality and value of a diamond: cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight. The cut of a diamond refers to the angles and proportions of the diamond, which can affect its sparkle and brightness. The colour of a diamond is graded on a scale from D (colourless) to Z (light yellow or brown), with higher grades indicating a more valuable diamond. The clarity of a diamond refers to the presence or absence of blemishes and inclusions, with higher grades indicating a more valuable diamond. The carat weight of a diamond refers to its size and weight, with larger diamonds being more valuable.

How do I clean and care for a diamond to keep it looking its best?

To clean and care for a diamond, it is recommended to clean it regularly with a solution of mild dish soap and warm water, and to use a soft brush to remove any dirt or debris from the setting. It is also a good idea to store your diamond separately from other jewellery to prevent it from being scratched or damaged. Avoid exposing your diamond to harsh chemicals, such as bleach or chlorine, and have it professionally checked and cleaned regularly to maintain its sparkle and brilliance.

What is the best way to protect a diamond and ensure its safety?

The best way to protect a diamond is to store it carefully, handle it gently, and have it professionally checked and cleaned regularly. It is also a good idea to insure your diamond to protect it against loss, theft, or damage. Consider keeping your diamond in a safe deposit box or a secure location when it is not being worn.

How can I determine the value of a diamond, and what should I consider when buying a diamond?

There are several factors that can determine the value of a diamond, including the Four Cs (cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight), the demand for the diamond, and the overall market conditions. A certified diamond grading report or appraisal can provide a more accurate estimate of a diamond's value. When buying a diamond, it is important to consider the preferences and style of the person who will be wearing the diamond, as well as your budget and the overall quality of the diamond.

How do diamonds compare to other gemstones, and what are some alternative gemstones to consider?

Diamonds are known for their exceptional beauty and durability, and they are often considered the most precious of all gemstones. However, they are also one of the most expensive gemstones, and there are many other gemstones that can offer similar beauty and value at a lower price. Alternative gemstones to consider include moissanite, cubic zirconia, sapphire, ruby, and emerald. Each gemstone has its own unique characteristics and value, so it is important to consider your personal preferences and budget when making a decision.

What is the difference between white diamonds and coloured diamonds?

White diamonds are the most traditional and popular type of diamonds, and they are colourless or nearly colourless. coloured diamonds, on the other hand, are diamonds that exhibit a range of colours other than white, such as yellow, blue, green, and brown. coloured diamonds are typically more rare and valuable than white diamonds.


Diamond Properties

Diamonds are precious stones formed from pure carbon. They are renowned for their exceptional beauty, durability and brilliance. Diamonds are graded according to the 4 C's: carat, cut, colour and clarity. The carat weight of a diamond is a measure of its size, with one carat being equal to 0.2 grams. The cut of a diamond refers to the symmetry, proportion and polish of a diamond, which are adjusted during the cutting process of the gemstone after it has been mined from the earth. The colour of a diamond refers to the combination of three components: hue, saturation and tone. The colour grading scale for diamonds ranges from D to Z. A perfect diamond, known as a D colour, has no colour at all. Diamond clarity refers to the purity of a diamond, and clarity criteria include determining the number of inclusions, their size, relief and position.

At GLAMIRA we use diamonds in colour H, which is considered to offer the best value for money and the best harmony with designs. The cut range includes 5 grades; excellent, very good, good, fair and poor. On the other hand, diamond shape, which is generally confused with diamond cut, refers to a style or design used to shape a diamond for polishing, such as the princess cut diamond. At GLAMIRA you will find many diamond shapes including Princess, Brilliant, Round, Trillion, Cushion, Heart, Oval and Emerald, which you can use to personalise your pieces.
