A carat is equal to 200 milligrams or a fifth of a gram and is further subdivided into 100 “points”. When a diamond investor buys a stone that weighs less than one carat, it would probably be referred to only in points. So, a diamond that weighs 0.25 carats, would be called a “twenty-five pointer”.
This is a key factor for investment-grade diamonds. GIA’s Clarity Scale classifies diamonds into 11 categories. The scale has gradations that range from “flawless”, which is the most valuable, down to the I3 category of “included” at the bottom. These are the 11 categories of diamond clarity:
Flawless: FL – at this level of the scale, a skilled grader using 10X magnification cannot see any “inclusions” or “blemishes”. Blemishes occur during cutting and mounting a polished diamond. An inclusion is a small imperfection inside the diamond. Internally flawless: IF Very, very slightly included: VVS1, VVS2. Very slightly included: VS1, VS2. Slightly included: SI1, SI2. Included: I1, I2, I3.
This refers to the expertise with which the stone has been fashioned. A diamond that scores highly on this parameter will have perfect proportions and will interact with light in a manner that gives it the ability to sparkle brightly. GIA’s cut scale provides five different classifications: Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, and Poor. If you are planning to invest in diamonds, it’s advisable to stay away from the Fair and Poor categories.
The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has established a color grading scale that measures the degree of colorlessness by comparing a diamond to master stones of established value. The grading system ranks diamonds from D to Z. The letter D signifies that a diamond is absolutely colorless. Each progressive letter indicates an increasing presence of color. The diamond grading scale ends at the letter Z. There are two crucial points that you must remember regarding a diamond’s color.
Firstly, some colored diamonds can be very valuable. Internal impurities can result in a gleaming colored stone. But these are extremely rare. High-value colored diamonds represent about 0.1% of total diamond production. Second, the color differences on GIA’s D to Z scale are so subtle that they are practically invisible to the untrained eye. But even a small variation in color can lead to a big price difference.
