Breaking Down The 4 C's

The First C: Cut

Of all the 4Cs, cut has the greatest effect on a diamond’s beauty. We often think of a diamond’s cut as shape (round, heart, oval, marquise, pear), but what diamond cut actually does mean is how well a diamond’s facets interact with light. In determining the quality of the cut, the grader evaluates the cutter’s skill in the fashioning of the diamond. The more precise the cut, the more captivating the diamond is to the eye.

The Second C: Color

Gem-quality diamonds occur in many hues. In the range from colorless to light yellow or light brown, many of these diamond color distinctions are so subtle that they are invisible to the untrained eye; however, these distinctions make a very big difference in diamond quality and price. Hence, it is important to get a GIA expert’s opinion in evaluating the best color for your diamond.

The Third C: Clarity

Diamonds can have internal characteristics known as inclusions or external characteristics known as blemishes. Diamonds without inclusions or blemishes are rare; however, most of these characteristics can only be seen with magnification. Evaluating diamond clarity involves determining the number, size, relief, nature, and position of these characteristics, as well as how these affect the overall appearance of the stone.

The Fourth C: Carat Weight

The carat is the diamond’s physical weight measured in metric carats. One carat equals 1/5 gram and is subdivided into 100 points. Carat weight is the most objective of the 4Cs. It involves no estimates, comparisons or judgments. However, two diamonds of equal carat weight can have very different values (and prices) depending on three other factors of the diamond 4Cs.

The Fifth C: Confidence

What's one extra C for peace of mind? When you shop smart — with American Gem Society’s top jeweler — you will feel confident in your decision. You know that the jeweler is qualified to describe the characteristics of your diamond, so you can make the choice that is right for you.

What Makes a Diamond Sparkle?

Why some diamonds sparkle more than others


The first measure of a diamond’s sparkle is brilliance, or how well it reflects white light. When you see a diamond sparkling in a dimly lit or candlelit room, what you’re seeing is its brilliance. If a diamond isn’t cut correctly, it will appear dim and dull, even in perfect lighting.


The second measure of a diamond's sparkle is fire, or how well it displays colored light. When you see a diamond with a rainbow-like appearance, it's a result of the correct balance of proportions from the top and bottom of the diamond. Diamonds with too deep or too shallow a cut won't refract colored light properly, resulting in a flat appearance.


The last measure of a diamond's sparkle is scintillation, or how well the diamond reflects light when it's moving, when the light source is moving, or when the person wearing the diamond is moving. When a diamond has high scintillation, it has very few spots where no sparkle occurs. In a well-cut diamond, most of the surface area of the diamond emits some visible sparkle.

HeartStar Diamonds

Brilliance is beauty

The HeartStar diamond is one of the finest cut and proportioned round brilliant diamonds produced in the world today. It reflects up to 93% of incoming light. Average diamonds don't even come close. While most diamonds are cut to maximize weight, our fine diamonds are cut for maximum brilliance in strict accordance with HeartStar cutting proportions. Cut is by far the most important of the 4C's. Don't be fooled by lesser quality, poorer cut stones.

  • Less than 1% of all diamonds cut in the world qualify as a HeartStar Diamond.
  • Springer’s hand picks and independently grades each diamond to assure it qualifies as AGS 0 cut grade.
  • A HeartStar Diamond allows the minimum amount of light leakage. So when you look at a HeartStar you see less of the diamonds color and more white light.
  • HeartStar diamond will look whiter than other diamonds, so choosing a lower color you will not be sacrificing the beauty of your diamond while paying a lower price.
