      • Cut : Achieving the perfect cut for your ring is crucial; it enhances the play of light, giving your ring that desired sparkle.

        Color : While an ideal diamond is crystal clear, some may exhibit a light yellow tint. Remember, the closer to perfection, the higher the diamond's price.

        Clarity : Though diamonds are inherently stunning, they can have imperfections, more commonly found in natural diamonds than in lab-grown alternatives.

        Carat : The carat weight of a diamond denotes its mass, not necessarily its size. Factors like shape and cut influence how large a diamond appears. Consider your style, budget, and the interplay of the other 3 Cs when selecting a diamond carat weight.
