Luxury diamond jewelry comes in many different qualities. This directly reflects the price of a diamond. The four C’s refer to a system of evaluating a diamond. They are cut, color, clarity, and carat. The cut of a diamond is how it was faceted. Different cuts will produce different brilliance, or how it reflects light. Color usually refers to lack of color rather than actual color.
