How is the quality of a diamond measured and how does this affect its price?

Quality is measured based on four criteria: color, purity, cut and carat.

 

The quality of a diamond is a fundamental criterion for determining its price. Quality is measured based on four criteria: color, clarity, cut quality and carat weight. Color is rated on a scale from D (whitest color) to Z (most yellowish color). D, E and F color diamonds are considered to be the rarest and most beautiful, and are therefore the most expensive. G through J color diamonds are considered good quality, while K through Z color diamonds are considered low quality.

The purity is evaluated on a scale from IF (Internally Flawless) to I3 (visible inclusions). IF clarity diamonds are considered to be the rarest and purest, while I1, I2 and I3 clarity diamonds are low end stones.

In summary, the quality of a diamond is a fundamental criterion for determining its price. The rarest and purest diamonds, with high color, clarity, cut quality and weight criteria, are the most expensive on the market. However, it is important to note that quality should not be the only criterion taken into account when buying a diamond. It is also important to consider weight and demand. Large weight diamonds are more expensive than low weight diamonds, and high demand for diamonds can drive up prices.

It is also important to note that the price of a diamond can vary depending on where it is purchased. Diamonds sold by jewelers and jewelers can be more expensive than diamonds sold by wholesalers or wholesale buyers. It is therefore important to do research and compare prices before buying a diamond. The advantage of buying a diamond on the internet on a site like i-diamants.com is to benefit from prices much lower than the prices in traditional jewelry.

Finally, it is important to note that the price of a diamond does not always reflect its real value. The real value of a diamond depends on its unique characteristics and specific qualities, which cannot be measured by criteria such as color, clarity, cut and weight alone. Ultimately, buying a diamond should be based on a combination of factors such as quality, price, and personal meaning to the buyer.
