Diamonds come in a variety of shapes. Most popular diamond shape is always round cut, followed by princess cut. Although these two shapes are the best-sellers, other diamond shapes like oval, cushion, emerald, marquise etc are always great choices for the lovers of fancy cuts. A diamond’s quality is determined by the 4C’s: the specifications that show color, cut, clarity, and carat weight. Simple rule of thumb is, as the quality of each specification goes up, so does the price. This is where the cost factor comes in: Everybody who purchases a diamond has to make a compromise at one or more specification to keep their purchase under a certain budget. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t get the most sparkle out of your stone. By making the right compromises and choosing the right indicator that is the most important for you, you can get your dream diamond for your setting. And remember: every loose diamond purchased from 25karats.com comes with a diamond certificate from GIA or IGI.
