The quality and value of a diamond is defined by four criteria, 4C (Cut, Carat, Clarity, Color), diamond size, weight, purity and the color of the diamond. These four criteria are also present on the certificate accompanying your future single stone ring or any stone above 0.4 carats.
The weight of the diamond is expressed in carats (cts) while the color and purity are described by letters. Color is graded from D to Z. The more colorless the diamond, the costlier the diamond.
The purity of a diamond is measured in terms of inclusions: the fewer, the purer the diamond. Purity is graduated IF with no visible inclusion in the x10 lens to I with many inclusions very easily visible to the naked eye. The fewer the inclusions, the higher the price of the diamond.
The value of a diamond is determined by it's size, color, purity and geometry. Diamonds come in every colour of the rainbow naturally, though white diamonds are used most in jewellery. Coloured diamonds, also called fancy diamonds are rated according to criteria such as the intensity and hue of colours.

Diamond & Gemstone Cuts and Shapes
The ultimate sparkler, in diamonds the round brilliant cut is the most favored diamond shape for the reason that its brilliance is unequaled by any other cut. This cut is less common in for most other gemstones.
Based on the brilliant cut, the oval cut is classically chic. For rings, this a shape for those who would like similar brilliance as the brilliant, yet prefer a more unusual style. In rings, the oval cut also makes the wearer's fingers appear longer and slimmer.
Noble finesse. The high brilliance of the princess cut makes it a favorite for engagement rings. This shape can be more square or rectangular, as stones vary variations in length-to-width ratio.
High status statement. The radiant cut is a bold, impressive square cut with a brilliant-cut facet pattern on both the crown and pavilion. This is cut is particularly well adapted for diamonds and makes a dazzling centerpiece for a ring.
On top of the world. The emerald cut owes its striking, elegant beauty to the step cuts of its pavilion and its large, open table emphasizing the clarity of the diamond. Unlike the brilliance of the brilliant cut, this cut has a dramatic hall-of-mirrors effect, with alternating flashes of long darker and lighter planes. Originally this shape was created for the cutting of emeralds, hence its name.
The Asscher cut diamond is akin to a square emerald cut, yet usually features larger step facets, a higher crown, and a smaller table. For this reason, the Asscher often produces more brilliance than the emerald cut and can be described as monumentally elegant and luxurious looking.
The lovely pear shape cut is a brilliant cut combined with a marquise cut. In rings, this shape is worn with the pointy end pointing toward the hand of the wearer and makes the finger of the wearer appear longer and slimmer.
Pure romance, the heart shape cut is perfect for a jewel that is offered as a symbol of love. Its proportions must be symmetric and both halves identical.
Distinction incarnate, the cushion cut is a square cut with gently rounded corners. This is a sophisticated shape for those who are looking for discreet, but compelling beauty.

To the manor born. The vessel-shaped marquise cut derives it's titled name from the Marquise of Pompadour, for whom King Louis XIV had the shape created to match her, as he thought, perfect lips.
