The shape of the diamond is oIen confused with the cut. However it is not same as the cut. Shape is basically the outline of the diamond coupled with the arrangement of facets, needed to create an attractive face-up appearance upfront. The most used shape in diamond jewellery is the round shape. All other outlines are known as fancy shapes.

While choosing the shape, understand what kind and style reﬂects you the best!
Pro Tip: While picking out a diamond, always consider the 4C’s of measuring the diamond for its value.
The colour of the diamond is about what you can’t see rather than what you can see. Diamonds are valued on the basis of how closely they approach colourlessness i.e the lesser the colour, the higher their value.

The scale begins with the letter D, representing colourless and continues with increasing presence of colour to the letter Z, or light yellow or brown.

Each shape will be cut diﬀerently. Before a diamond is cut, the location of the birthmarks, any inclusions and ﬂaws, the natural colouration, and the original
All diamonds and other gemstones are weighed in metric carats: one carat is equal to 0.2 grams, which is about the same weight as a paperclip. (There is a diﬀerence between carat and karat, which implies“18K gold,” that refers to the measurement of the purity of gold)
Just as a rupee is divided into 100 paisa, a carat is divided into 100 points. For example, a 50-point diamond weighs 0.50 carats.
1 ct = .200 grms
