The term Diamond Cut indicates towards the quality of a diamond’s angles, proportions, symmetrical aspects, exquisiteness, glitter, and finishing details. The ability of a diamond to sparkle and its aesthetic charm mainly depends upon the mentioned features. In other words, the skill of the craftsman directly impacts the quality and beauty of a diamond. According to Cut, diamonds can be classified into 4 grades: Ideal, very good, good, and poor. Diamonds with a better cut grade will always be more expensive.
The clarity of a diamond refers to the presence or absence of natural inclusions or blemishes in the diamond. The shape of a diamond affects the clarity grade of a diamond, brilliant-cut shapes such as round and princess can hide the imperfections to some extent but the step-cut such as the emerald make the inclusions more visible. Clarity is graded according to GIA as follows
- FL (Flawless)
- IF (Internally Flawless)
- VVS1 (Very, Very Slightly Included 1)
- VVS2 (Very, Very Slightly Included 2)

The diamond colour grade gives a measure to how little colour it reflects, the diamond colour can be graded from D to Z. A diamond given D grade means it is colorless and pure white whereas the diamond deemed as a Z contains a yellow or brown tint. There is sometimes a significant change in the price of a diamond due to its color grade, mostly the naked eye cannot differentiate between different grades and the diamonds may appear similar to the people but the change in price can indicate the grade difference.
Carat is a term that is related to the weight of the diamond and not its shape or size. There might be a difference in the shape and size of two 1 carat (1 carat is equal to 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams) diamonds.
Difference between Natural and Lab-Created Diamonds
The main difference between natural and lab-created diamonds is the way or process in which a diamond is created.
Natural mined diamonds are formed underneath the earth's crust in high temperatures and high pressure.
The lab-created diamonds are produced inside labs with the help of an artificial process, in a highly controlled environment with the help of the latest technology similar conditions are replicated in which the natural diamonds are formed inside the earth's crust.
