Diamond Facts

Introduction to Diamond Facts

Diamonds are one of the most popular and highly coveted gemstones in the world, known for their unparalleled beauty, incredible hardness, and rarity. While many people are familiar with diamonds, there are many fascinating facts about them that are still not widely known. From their formation deep within the Earth to their use in cutting-edge technology, diamonds have a rich and fascinating history that spans thousands of years. Join us as we uncover the secrets of these precious stones and learn more about what makes them so special.

Diamonds Are Natural Wonders

Diamonds are natural gemstones that are formed deep within the earth's mantle under extreme pressure and heat. They are made of carbon atoms arranged in a crystalline structure. Typically, they are formed over millions to billions of years and are then transported to the earth’s surface by way of volcanic eruption, where they can then be mine.

Every Diamond is Graded by Experts

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is an independent organization that sets the standard for diamond grading and gemological research. GIA uses the "Four Cs" to evaluate a diamond's quality and value. The Four Cs refers to the diamond's carat weight, color, clarity, and cut. Carat weight measures the size of the diamond, color evaluates its hue and saturation, clarity measures the presence of inclusions and blemishes, and cut assesses how well the diamond reflects light. The GIA grading system is widely recognized as the most objective and reliable standard for diamond quality assessment.

Diamonds Aren’t Just Colorless

Diamonds come in various colors, including pink, blue, yellow, green, and brown. Colored diamonds, or fancy diamonds, get their colors from impurities or defects in the crystal lattice structure. The intensity of the color determines the value of the diamond. Pink and blue diamonds are the rarest and most valuable colored diamonds. The color of a diamond is evaluated on a scale from D (colorless) to Z (yellow or brown), with D being the most valuable.

Diamonds Are Hard. Very Hard.

Diamonds are the hardest natural substance on Earth, and only a few other materials, such as moissanite or other diamonds, can scratch them. The durability of a diamond makes it ideal for daily wear, and it is a popular choice for engagement rings and other jewelry meant to last a lifetime. While diamonds are incredibly strong, they can still be chipped or fractured if they are hit in a certain way. Taking care of your diamond jewelry and protecting it from potential damage is important to retaining its value.

Not All Diamonds Are Jewelry-Ready

Not all diamonds are suitable for use in jewelry, as many diamonds have too many inclusions or other flaws to be considered gem quality. In fact, only a small percentage of diamonds mined are considered high enough quality to be used in jewelry. These diamonds are carefully selected, cut, and polished to maximize their beauty and value.
