What Are The 4C’s Of Diamonds?

The 4Cs of diamonds is the universal method used to assess the quality of diamonds based on the Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat.

Before the 4Cs of Diamond Grading was created by GIA, there were many different terms used to evaluate the diamonds. For example, Clarity was used to describe as “without flaws” or “with imperfections”. Until the early 20th century, Robert M. Shipley, who established GIA in 1931 to provide formal gemological training to the jewellers.

Shipley then standardized the diamond value terms to the 4Cs which are Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat so that everyone can understand about diamonds. 

To learn more about it, we have a 4C's interactive page for customers to buy diamond rings the smart way.

Why Are Your Diamonds So Much Cheaper?

Many people have overlooked this, but from the time a diamond leaves the diamond mine, the diamonds have to pass through many hands - from traders to wholesalers and retailers before ending up with the ring on your finger. This means that at every stage, the price of the diamond increases until it reaches the retail market where it becomes ridiculously expensive.

*Statistics are based on the findings from NEO MAMMALIAN STUDIOS.

ZCOVA diamonds are sourced directly from the diamond manufacturers that produce the stones globally, which means we can offer the stones at almost wholesale price to the retail market.
