FC: The Ultimate Jewellery Shopping Experience
4: At Anand's we employ the GIA Color Scale, which extends from D (Colourless) to Z (light yellow or brown). Although many people think of gem quality diamonds as colourless, truly colourless diamonds are actually very rare. Most diamonds used in jewelry are nearly colourless with tints of yellow or brown. Colour grades are determined by comparing each diamond to a master set. Each letter grade represents a range of colour and is a measure of how noticeable a colour is.
5: At Anand's, we use the GIA Clarity scale which includes eleven clarity grades. Because diamonds form under tremendous heat and pressure, it is extremely rare to find a diamond that lacks any internal and external characteristics. These characteristics are a by-product of its formation and help our gemologist separate natural diamonds from synthetics and simulants, and identify individual stones.
6: At Anand's, the Cut Scale which our GIA Graduate Gemologist uses, ranges from Excellent to Poor. A diamond is given a Cut Grade based on the angles, measurements and proportions of the diamond. A polished diamond's beauty lies in its complex relationship with light: how light strikes the surface, how much enters the diamond, and how, and in what form light returns to your eye.
7: Contrary to popular belief, Carat weight does not necessarily refer to size; It refers to the weight of a gemstone. One Carat equals 200 milligrams in weight. For diamonds under one carat, each carat is divided into 100 points.
