Diamonds are cut in many different shapes: round or princess shaped, for instance.

Learning about diamonds is really learning about the "four Cs" of diamonds - cut, clarity, color and carat weight. These are the criteria used when grading diamonds.

Carat weight: A carat is the unit of weight by which a diamond is measured. The larger the diamond the more it weighs.

Did you know that the size of a diamond effects rarity?

The rarity of a 1.00-carat diamond is much greater than twice that of a .50 carat.
