DIAMONDS

We, at Gold Crafters Exchange, like to think that Diamonds are unlike any other precious stone or piece of jewelry you own. If you take a trip to any of our locations, our expert appraisers will appraise your diamond and offer you the highest price possible. We will offer you immediate payment for diamonds of any cut, color or carat.

If you are interested in upgrading or getting a new setting, we have hundreds of styles to choose from. And of course, you can always get a free cleaning! Yearly, you should always have your diamond checked to insure the setting is solid thus avoiding losing a stone.

Did you know that no two diamonds are alike? Your diamond characteristics and composition are what determines your diamond’s value. You may have heard of the 4 “C’s” when referring to diamonds. Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat are the basics to help you understand how we evaluate your diamond(s) to offer the highest market price available. We at Gold Crafters Exchange have on our staff Gemologists with years of experience grading and determining your Diamond’s value. Please Call Gold Crafters ExchangeToday!

What is a Diamond?

 

Guide to the Four C’s

1. Cut
The Ideal Cut Diamond describes a round brilliant diamond that has been cut to exact and mathematically proven proportions.
Its symmetry, with 58 exactly placed facets, produces the ultimate in lustre and beauty. When a round brilliant diamond has been cut to “Ideal” proportions by a master cutter, it is a magnificent gem.

2. Color
Most diamonds, although appearing colorless, actually have slight tones of yellow or brown. As these tones become more easily apparent, the uniqueness and cost decrease.

3. Carat Weight
Practically all diamonds contain naturally occurring internal characteristics called inclusions. The size, location and number of inclusions determine a diamond’s clarity and grade, and affect its cost. One unique advantage of the Ideal Cut is that its sparkle can mask otherwise noticeable inclusions.

4. Carat
The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. One carat is divided into100 parts called “points,” 1 ct. =100 points; 2 ct. =200 points. The value of two diamonds of the same weight can vary greatly depending on the color, clarity and especially the cut. The value of a diamond can vary as much as 40% based on the cutting alone.
