The 4 Cs

Clarity

It describes the clearness or purity of a diamond. This is determined by the number, size, nature and location of the internal inclusions and external imperfections (blemishes) Gary Sachs’ Diamond Jewelers follows strict GIA standards and EGL standards.
The clarity scale is broken down into the following grades:

F Flawless Free from all inclusions or blemishes
IF Internally Flawless No inclusions visible at 10x magnification
VVS1 Very Very Small Inclusion #1 Inclusions that are extremely difficult to locate at 10x
VVS2 Very Very Small Inclusion #2 Inclusions that are very difficult to locate at 10x
VS1 Very Small Inclusion #1 Minor inclusions that are difficult to see at 10x
VS2 Very Small Inclusion #2 Minor inclusions that are somewhat difficult to see at 10x
SI1 Small Inclusion #1 Noticeable inclusions that are easy to locate at 10x
SI2 Small Inclusion #2 Noticeable inclusions that are very easy to locate at 10x. Some inclusions may be seen with the unaided eye
SI3 Small Inclusion #3 Noticeable inclusions that are extremely easy to locate At 10x. Some inclusions may be seen with the unaided eye.
I1 Included #1 Obvious inclusions. Somewhat easy to locate with the unaided eye
I2 Included #2 Obvious inclusions Easy to locate with the unaided eye
I3 Included #3 Obvious inclusions Very easy to locate with the unaided eye.

Two methods used to affect the clarity grade given to a diamond are lasering and clarity enhancing. The laser-ing of a diamond is the process in which a laser is used to drill a tiny hole into a diamond and the black of the imperfection is removed. This is a legitimate and widely accepted treatment. The second treatment is called clarity enhancing. This method is widely disputed because a foreign element is injected into the diamond. This method is not permanent and therefore not recommended. All clarity treated diamonds must be disclosed as such prior to sale.

Color

Color describes the amount of color the diamond contains. This can range from colorless to yellow with slight tints of yellow, gray or brown. Colors can also range from intense yellow to brown, blue, green, pink and red. These fancy colors are rare and therefore more valuable.

Cut

Cut refers to the proportions, finish, symmetry and polish of a diamond. These factors determine the fire and brilliance of a diamond. Well cut diamonds sell at a premium and poorly cut diamonds sell at a discounted price. Our GIA educated staff uses the Dia-Mension system, a computerized system which takes accurate measurements and proportions of a diamond in seconds, in addition to the standard millimeter gauge. We pride ourselves in providing fine make diamonds.

Carat Weight

Carat weight is the unit of weight for the diamond. A carat is further subdivided into 100 points (0.01 carat = 1 point).
