The pricing of the diamond | Unsaid Library

What is a carat?

Both diamonds and gold are marked with carats, so this may cause some confusion. With gold, carat is the unit that indicates the amount of precious metal, or purity. One carat equals 1/24th of a mass of pure precious metal, so 24K gold is considered to be 100% gold. A common content is 18K gold, which is 75% pure gold mixed with 25% other metals. You can recognize this content by the stamp .750 that has to be printed somewhere very small in the jewellery.

In the case of diamonds (and other gems) the unit carat works differently. This is not about a content, but about the MESSAGE of the stone. One carat corresponds to 0.2 grams (200 milligrams). If a diamond weighs 100 milligrams, then you speak of half a carat.

And to make it even more complicated, a carat is subdivided into 100 ‘dots’. So a diamond of 75 dots weighs 0.75 carats.

Why is one diamond much more expensive than another?

Did you know that there are also coloured diamonds? Diamonds really exist in all colours of the rainbow. There are yellow, blue, green, pink, black, brown and even red diamonds. Worldwide only a few red diamonds are found per year and usually they are small specimens of less than 0.5 carat. Coloured diamonds are super rare and that makes them much more expensive. The more intense the colour, the bigger the price tag.

With colorless diamonds, a number of factors are taken into account to determine the price. The size and weight (in other words, the carat), but also the color, purity and cut play an important role. For convenience these factors are also called the 4 C’s: carat, color, clarity and cut.

Colour & purity

And how exactly do you determine the colour of a colourless diamond, you might wonder? Every colourless diamond looks white and colourless at first sight, but professionals can distinguish subtle colour differences based on an international diamond colour scale. The more colourless the diamond, the more precious it is.

As far as purity is concerned, a professional with a magnifying glass (10 x magnification under normal light) looks at inclusions. The fewer inclusions, the purer the diamond, the more beautiful the light is reflected and the stronger the brilliance will be. However, flawless diamonds, i.e. diamonds without any inclusions, are super rare and therefore also very expensive.

Cutting shape

The shape of a diamond gives it its light-reflecting properties and the quality of the cut is therefore very important for the price. A diamond has to be cut in exactly the right proportions to perfectly reflect the light from one facet to the other and to let it shine at the top of the stone. If the proportions and symmetry of a diamond are not perfect, then the reflection of the light is partially lost and that detracts from the sparkle.

In terms of price, it doesn’t really matter which SOORT cut is chosen, that’s just a matter of taste, but the QUALITY of the cut is, as explained above, very important. The better the quality, the more expensive the diamond.

Take care of your friends

And if you are in possession of a beautiful jewel with diamonds, what is the best way to do that? First of all, I would like to say that a piece of jewellery with diamonds has to be DRAGEN. I think there are quite a few people who think it’s a shame to wear precious jewelry because they’re afraid they’ll damage it.

I remember when my grandfather died and my father went to his house to clean up. He found a precious watch in the case that he didn’t even know his father had in his possession. Maybe Grandpa had worn it once or twice and then put it deep away, because he wanted to take care of it. My father thought it was a shame. If you have something so beautiful, you should enjoy it as often as possible. For him it was a real eye opener. From that point on he started to wear his own beautiful watch more often and taught me this lesson, so I also started to wear my most beautiful jewelry more often. Which of course does not mean that I am not careful. Hopefully this will also inspire you to get your most beautiful, most precious jewelry from under the dust and actually wear it. Because it’s really a shame when you hide such beautiful jewelry.

When you wear jewellery with diamonds, there are a number of things you should pay attention to to keep them as beautiful and sparkling as possible. Avoid contact with products such as chlorine. So take off your jewellery before you start cleaning or taking a dip in the pool. Also, contact with seawater and sand is not a good idea, so keep your jewellery safe before you go to the beach or leave it at home when you go on holiday.
