About The 4 C's of Diamonds
Diamond jewelry is an acknowledgment and lifelong reminder of the precious moments in our lives, a sparkling testament of someone’s love and commitment, a personal reward for a great accomplishment and an enduring symbol to be treasured and celebrated. Beautiful sentiments supported by Clean Origin’s commitment to never do any damage to our world and our societies by giving you the choice of selecting one of our Lab Created Diamonds.
Choosing The Right Diamond
All diamonds, whether mined or lab created, are graded on quality using a universal system that assesses the stone on its color, clarity, cut and carat-weight; this grading system is commonly known as the ‘4 Cs’ of diamonds. This grading system is applied only to diamonds, and never to a diamond simulant such as cubic zirconia or moissanite. Every Clean Origin lab created diamond, no matter how large or small, has a set of unique characteristics that determine its value and map its journey to your jewelry.
Although not one of the ‘4 Cs,’ the shape of the diamond, along with the carat size, is probably one of the most personal considerations of the entire selection process. Diamond shape is an indication of individual aesthetics and specific taste. The most popular shape for an engagement ring is the round brilliant — this shape provides the greatest level of sparkle and brilliance of all the diamond shapes and gives a softer statement on your finger. The princess cut is the second most popular shape and provides a more architectural feel to your ring. However, the chosen shape of your diamond will no doubt change based on your personal preference, price requirements, the style of jewelry, diamond quality, among other factors. Other diamond shapes include pear shapes, ovals, emerald cuts and cushion cuts.
