The weight of diamond is "carat". One karat = 0,2 gram and one karat equals 100 points.
All diamonds have traces of their growth history. In gem-quality diamonds, this concerns minute internal and external characteristics, graded under Clarity.
Most diamonds are colorless to slightly yellowish. The color grade is determined by comparison with a series of master-stones, the best grade being colorless (D, exceptional white +)
Fire, brilliancy and scintillation of a diamond are largely determined by the proportions of various parts of the stone. Finish grade mainly evaluates the symmetry.
Diamonds can be cut in various shapes. The round brilliant is probably the best known shape.
The clarity scale reflects the size, number, location and visibility of the characteristics when examined with a 10 X magnifying loupe. The very best - and rarest - clarity is loupe clean. Most inclusions, however, are not visible to the naked eye. Diamonds that have no inclusions visible to the unaided eye are also of excellent value.
Diamonds can also occur in all sorts of colors, ranging from brownish to striking yellows, pink to purple, red and blue. These are called "fancy colors". Certain diamonds can react to "black light" with grades varying from nil-slight-medium to strong. Besides color, the fluorescence of the diamond is also graded.
