A carat is the unit used to measure a diamond's weight. One carat equals 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams. Although carat weight and the size of a diamond are related, carat does not directly measure diamond size.
Diamonds are graded on their lack of colour. The more colourless a diamond is the higher the quality.

Certified diamonds are graded by expert gemologists who asses quality characteristics including but not limited to carat, colour, clarity and cut. Diamonds above 0.40 carat on our website are certified by one of the top laboratories: GIA, HRD or IGI.
The cut of a diamond refers to how well-proportioned its dimensions are. Higher cut diamonds offer the best light performance.
The clarity of a diamond refers to the absence of inclusions which are impurities on and within the stone.
The finishing and smoothness of a diamond’s facets. Grades of very good or higher are recommended for maximum brilliance.
The alignment of a diamond’s facets and angles. Although not as important as cut, low symmetry grades can still affect a diamond’s brilliance.
The height of a diamond, from the culet to the table. Depth % is the ratio of the height in relation to the girdle diameter.
The flat facet of a diamond when it is face up. Table % is the ratio of the table width in relation to the girdle diameter.
The glow that a diamond emits when it is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. Strong fluorescence can sometimes make a diamond look milky.
