Diamonds are examined mainly by the 'four Cs': carat, clarity, color, and cut. They are measured in carats; one carat equals 1/5th of a gram. These gemstones also may show different colors like white, yellow, brown, pink, red, blue, purple, green, violet, and orange. Out of these, the white, yellow, and brown ones are most commonly used. A diamond's color can be determined by studying its face up and down. Their clarity determines how pure they are, and the ones having less blemishes and inclusions have better clarity. Cuts in diamonds enhance their color, shine, and hide inclusions. If the cuts are too deep or shallow, the gemstone will not have a good dispersion. Pear, emerald, marquise, and brilliant are the most popular diamond cuts.
Lapping: Lapping is also a very popular method which uses diamond. In the process of lapping, a diamond slurry is used. The diamond slurry is made by mixing water with a mixture that contains small pieces of diamonds. This diamond slurry is then applied between the two surfaced that needs to be lapped and rubbed for getting results.
The Kimberley Process (KP) defines 'conflict diamonds' as "rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments." For the conscientious buyer, it is of great significance that only conflict-free diamonds are considered for purchase.
Very Light Color Diamonds: The diamonds with very fewer colors are the one which has color shade in them. This color is visible with the naked eyes and can be seen even in less light. These diamonds are very less expensive than the higher grades and thus can be easily purchased.
