Discover the 4C's
Amin Luxury goes beyond the 4C’s standards, selecting and identifying diamonds in accordance with a strict criteria ensuring they are conflict free, humanely sourced and of the highest quality.
Amin Luxury carefully chooses its diamonds, providing transparency and an accurate description of the diamond’s virtues by weight, color, purity, cut, as well as fluorescence. Using GIA facet ware software when necessary, and guaranteeing only top quality diamonds.
The evaluation of a diamond is internationally measured through the 4C’s. Each of the C’s describes one of the main characteristics of a diamond: cut, color, clarity and carat weight.
The 4C’s play an important role in determining the value of a diamond. However, Amin Luxury offers more than a "pure" diamond. Amin Luxury diamonds are expertly selected and then through superior manufacturing by esteemed goldsmiths and designers, all their top characteristics are enhanced so that the stone is transformed into a unique and precious jewel that can be valued as a piece of art.
Each Amin Luxury diamond undergoes a profound analysis of the cutting quality and diamond polishing to ensure that its brightness has the highest degree of transparency.
The purity scale consists of eleven degrees ranging from Flawless to I3.
As diamonds are formed in extraordinary temperatures and under extreme pressures, it is rare to find a diamond that does not have any microscopic internal or surface characteristics. However as a result of their formation their slight natural uniqueness serves as a guarantee of their natural origins, making them easily identifiable from imitations and synthetic diamonds.
The color scale helps grade diamonds from the top letter D (colorless) to the letter Z (light yellow or light brown).
Although the common perception is that a diamond is colorless, when professionally examined truly colorless stones are very rare. Most of the diamonds used in jewelry are actually almost colorless with yellow or brown hues. The degrees of color is determined by comparing each individual diamond with a selection of comparison stones. Each letter or grade represents a color range and corresponds to a certain amount of visible color.
The mysterious beauty to a diamond is hidden in the complex interaction between the stone’s quality and reflection of light. How a gem stone is cut will determine how the light reflects off the surface of the stone; in the quantity that manages to enter the diamond; and in the form it returns to the eyes of the observer. The result is a magnificent display of three optical attributes. The brilliance, or rather the combination of reflections of white light coming from the surface and from the inside of the diamond; the fire, a term that refers to the "flames" of color emitted by the jewel; and the sparkle, which consists of the flashes of light visible when the diamond is moved.
One carat equals 200 milligrams of metric weight. When diamond sizes are below a carat, their size is subdivided into 100 points, just as a coin is subdivided into cents.
0.75 ct. = 75 points, 1/2 ct. = 50 points
The 4Cs offer a method to compare and evaluate diamonds objectively. However the bare figures are not equip in their ability to describe the real mystery or to truly captivator the beauty of the jewel. To be able to really evaluate it you will have to visit your local jeweller and see one in person.
