Out of hundreds of recognised gemstones in the world today, only the diamond is worthy for an engagement ring, the enduring symbol of love and commitment. A diamond is brilliant, returning more white light to the eye. It disperses fire and scintillates with reflected and refracted light. A diamond is rare and it endures, being the hardest natural substance on earth and the purest of all gemstones.
“ When buying a diamond, it helps to know about the 4C’s:
Colour, Clarity, Cut, and Carat. ”
- Weight of a diamond is measured in carats
- One carat = 100 points = 0.2 grams
- The heavier and larger the diamond, usually the more rare it is, for instance a two-carat diamond will be more than twice as valuable as a one-carat stone.
