Diamonds are purely made of carbon and the hardest mineral in earth. But that’s not enough for man. We simply must determine its worth by means of a price tag, and thus, the 4Cs: carat, clarity, color and cut. “Finding the best diamond for your money is a delicate balancing act among the 4Cs. For example, you may have to choose a lower Carat weight in order to find a diamond with better Clarity for the budget you’ve set. Or you may decide to trade a slightly lower Color grade in order to get a stone with a better Cut and so on,” says Tricie Mojica, general manager of Just Jewels.
