Cut – the most of what we think of as the fire of a loose diamond—the brilliance—is from the cut. An ideal cut will reflect most of the light that hits the diamond, thus causing it to shine and look very beautiful. A poor cut will make the diamond look lifeless and in many cases a small diamond that has an ideal cut will look much better that a bigger diamond with a shallow or a heavy cut. In many cases, this will make the cut of a diamond affect the price greatly.
Carat – is the weight of the certified diamond. Many people confuse this with the size of one. A carat is one fifth of a gram. The size of a single diamond adds to it’s worth, so 2 half-carat diamonds taken together will not cost as much as 1 one-carat diamond. This is because the one-carat stone is rarer.
After the 4 c’s are evaluated, the price of the diamond earring will be calculated. There are also market values that influence price.
