The 4 C’s … Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat

As a graduate gemologist the 4 C’s are like riding a bike to me. I forget not everyone buys diamonds on a regular basis like Cronier’s does. Just getting started?

Let me let you in on a little secret. GIA, The Gemological Institute of America produces the most respected diamond and colored stone certificates in the world. There mission statement is something like “…to ensure the public trust in gems and jewelry by upholding the highest standards of integrity, academics, science, and professionalism through education, research, laboratory services, and instrument development.”

These guys are not playing they take rocks and or minerals very serious they also make this really cool application that explains the 4 C’s located on the app store for free and they also have a free guide online.
