The 4Cs

Beautiful. Precious. Cherished. Every individual diamond is different and is a miracle of place, time, change and each has distinct features that build its meaning.

 The first tip in AËLRA's diamond buying guide for buying a diamond is to understand the 4Cs. The 4Cs are the global norms for assessing the nature of diamonds and enable you to analyze one diamond to another. But what are these 4Cs? The 4Cs are-

1.The Cut: The shape of the diamond as well as with the precision each facet is cut to give the diamond its fire, light dispersion, because of the light refracting off of the angles.

2. The Colour: Examines the colour of the diamond (generally from D-Z)

3. The Clarity: Shows that how clean the diamond is of inclusions and blemishes

4. The Carat: weight of the diamond

    Choose Your Ideal Shape

    The shape of your diamond is the first step in your "how to choose a diamond" guide. Regardless of what shape you pick, it's a matter of personal choice (or your partner's). Round brilliant cuts are the most common diamond shape not only for rings but also for earrings and a pendant too. The shapes of a diamond does not simply end here, but they also come in Princess, Emerald, Asscher, Oval, and many more.

    Select The Carat Weight

    Is your fiancé looking forward to a 1 or 2-carat diamond? Are you seeking a stone that's beautiful but not over the top? Here AËLRA's diamond guide urges you to choose the carat weight range you are comfortable with, such as a 0.95 to a 1.08 carat diamond. As carat weight rises, so does the cost. Carat weight reshapes how big a diamond looks.

    Cut Quality

    The feature that considerably influences a diamond's grace is its cut quality. Cut grades are not standardized over all the merchants, but we only value the Excellent and Ideal cut diamonds.

    For example, on AËLRA, you get the excellent cut natural round brilliant diamonds. Blending the artistry and expert craftsmanship, this soft yet unique diamond reassures our pledge to lead your rare quality at affordable prices.

    Colour Grade Range

    The goal of a diamond buying guide is to let you know that the purpose of diamond colour and  to pick a diamond that looks white. But if you don't want to go for an expensive D or E diamond to get a colourless stone, diamonds in the G to I range are white but cost far less.

    It is necessary to remember that diverse shapes reflect the colour at various strengths, so your selection of optimal colour, considering the diamond's appearance with the diamond's price, will depend considerably on what diamond shape you've picked.
