What Determines the Value of the Diamond?

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) developed the 4 Cs – Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight. They used this as a benchmark to how a diamond is valued. Previous to this internationally recognized grading system, there were no such standards in place. Hence a value of a diamond was very subjective.

  • Colour

    The GIA developed the D-to-Z colour grading scale 50 years ago to show the range of colour that a diamond has. D represents the colourless spectrum; while the opposite side of the spectrum is Z which represents the light colour end.

  • Cut

    Natural Fancy Coloured Diamonds are unique with graining to show its colours. If your intent is to turn your loose diamond investment into jewellery, then the right type of cut (size and shape) will make all the difference in the value of your Fancy Coloured Diamond.

  • Clarity

    Fancy Colour Diamonds will naturally have graining to them. They generally will not be as clear as a colour-less diamond. However, a low clarity FCD can still be highly sought after. As long as these FCDs have an exquisite face-up colour, they will be in high demand!

  • Carat

    The carat is the weight of the diamond. The bigger the diamond the rarer it is. However, when it comes to investing in loose natural coloured diamonds, it’s better to diversify your portfolio. Hold more variety to ensure that you maximize your short and medium term returns.
