There are some basic factors you should consider when buying a diamond. Diamonds are graded and categorized by the 4Cs (cut, color, clarity and carat weight.) Finding the best diamond that fits your taste and budget comes down to these four areas.

Cut: NADB only lists diamonds that are graded as Excellent or Very Good in Cut, Polish and Symmetry.

Color: The only diamonds listed are graded D-J.

Clarity: Our recommendation is to choose a diamond between Flawless – Sl2

Carat Weight: We broker diamonds .50ct and larger.

Below is a more in-depth guide to choosing the best cut for each diamond shape.
