Diamond is the best-known gem. It signifies love, eternity, strength, and everlasting affection. For those reasons you will buy it when you propose someone special in a form of engagement ring and/or wedding jewelry.
The value of a diamond depends on these factors: color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. Large diamonds are rarer than small ones, and therefore more valuable. However, the price of a diamond does not go up in simple steps along with size !
Color is the most important single factor that contributes to the value of a diamond. Several grading scales are currently in use; on the GIA scale, for example, the highest-quality color grades are D, E, and F - all corresponding to a pure "white" color with no tinge of yellow. To the untrained eye, two diamonds may both appear "white", whereas one might actually be F and the other J on the GIA scale, and the difference in price could be as much as 35 percent.
