The 5C’s of Diamond Shopping:

Being a diamond shopper you will always come across a concept of 5 C’s. Below is a detailed explanation of what these 5C’s are and why it is important to know about those, while shopping for any diamond jewelry/watches.

 

CUT

Diamonds are usually cut into different shapes such as princess, round and baguette. A ‘cut’ enhances the intensity of shine in a diamond. A diamond may have a great shape, clarity and color but all it takes is a poor cut to worsen its brilliant looks. When ideally cut to perfect proportions, regardless of the shape, a diamond sparkles, thereby allowing light rays to pass through it and leaves a wonderful effect on its exit - full of radiance similar to a rainbow. If not, the diamond doesn’t look like one at all. Polish and symmetry are also equally important and determine the form and fit of a diamond. If a diamond gives out a blurry effect and sparkles inadequately, maybe it’s poorly polished.

 

COLOR

Diamonds differ in terms of color and colorless diamonds are the most precious and thus rare. Categorized into a band, a diamond’s color is identified on a scale of D to Z.

  • “D” is very hard to find. It is completely colorless and thus a rare commodity.
  • “E”, like D, is also a rare diamond, and colorless to boot.
  • “F”, though categorized as a colorless diamond, expert gemologists can detect very slight color patterns exhibited by this diamond.
  • Tipped to provide the best value, the diamonds classified under the class “G-H” are almost colorless; however they show up some color when compared to diamonds of the aforementioned grades. These diamonds are found in most of the diamond watches we put up for sale at kanarygifts.com.
  • I-J is nearly colorless diamonds.
  • Considered as a class of diamonds that fairly shows up color, K-Z grade does not add any significant value and beauty to the natural elegance of this gem. This band of diamonds exhibit yellowish color, with the shades differing in brightness, namely faint yellow, very light yellow, and light yellow.
 

CLARITY

    Clarity is another characteristic that separates a real diamond from the rest. Diamonds that are absolutely clear to look at are very rare and hence very costly.

  • Diamonds that fall into the IF category are internally flawless and hence very rare in existence.
  • Diamonds that are included in the VVS1, VVS2 category are also known for their excellent quality. Very slight inclusions can be observed in these types of diamonds under a 10x magnification lens. VVS1
  • Referring to the Very Slightly inclusions, VS1 and VS2 diamonds are also good quality gems. Not easily visible to the naked eye, these inclusions can be viewed in a 10x magnification aid. VS1 is a tad cleaner than VS2 however.
  • SI1 and SI2 stand for slightly included, with the former classified to be a lot cleaner than the later. Easily detected when viewed under a 10x magnification system, the inclusions in these valuable diamonds cannot be differentiated with the naked eye.
  • I1 clarity represents the class in which the inclusions are visible even with the naked eye.
  • The diamonds used in the watches sold by us are of G-H color (almost colorless) and have the SI quality (Slightly Included), which means the diamonds at this level have minor inclusions.

 

CARAT

Used as a standard measure for most of the gemstones, Carat weight determines the actual weight of stones that are embedded on a watch. It’s a myth that different gems that have the same weight are not of the same size, because a few gemstones are slightly denser than the rest. In other words, a few diamonds when arranged together form a pack into a smaller space that can be more in weight.

Generally, weight of small diamonds is often measured as points. 1 carat is made up of 100 points. In simply, each point is equal to one hundredth of a carat. Hence a 0.50 carat diamond is equal to fifty points - one half of a carat.

 

CARE

Taking good care of your diamonds is quite crucial for its durability. Keep it snugly set in a fairly protective setting and be aware of it on your wrist. You surely can keep your diamonds unscathed for a lifetime, as diamonds are one of the hardest substances which are incredibly resistant to external damage. The diamond, over time, loses its sheen owing to build up of chemicals like chlorine, and exposure to harsh agents like hair spray. So, cleaning the surface of your watch regularly is one good solution to keep the diamonds polished and glowing forever. Nowadays people clean diamond jewelry at home using a solution obtained by mixing one part of ammonia with six parts of water. All you got to do is dip your diamond watch into the solution for a while. Voila! There’s another way to clean your watch by your hand though. Scrub against the surface with a very soft brush and it would loosen the dirt, and increase the shine. Do it gently and take care not to scrape the metal of your watch’s case.


You’re buying a diamond - a valuable stone. Ensure you weigh up all these factors before making a pick. Remember, diamonds are forever!
