CutCut affects the beauty and brilliance of a diamond, enabling it to make the best use of light and shine like a well-cut diamond should. A well-cut diamond has correct proportions which allows the light to reflect properly. For example, in a well-cut round brilliant diamond:
- A 1-carat round diamond should be 6.3 mm – 6.5 mm in diameter
- A 3/4-carat round diamond should be 5.7 mm – 5.9 mm in diameter
ColorDiamonds are graded in a color range from bright white (“D”) all the way up to a yellowish brown (“Z”). The best way to see the difference in color is to compare loose diamonds side by side. Since it is difficult to fully see one color grade to the next with the human eye, we encourage you to stop in and let us SHOW you the differences. We have a slogan here at Tobin Jewelers, “If you can’t see the difference, don’t spend the extra money.”
Carat WeightA one-carat diamond is divided into 100 points. So, a 50-point diamond would weigh a half carat and a 25-point diamond weighs in at a 1/4 carat. Although size is an important factor in determining the value of a diamond, bigger is not always better. Cut, Color, and Clarity are equally – if not more – important. Come to Tobin Jewelers and you WILL see the difference in our diamonds!
