The 4 C's of Diamond Grading

"Until the middle of the twentieth century, there was no agreed-upon standard by which diamonds could be judged. GIA created the first, and now globally accepted standard for describing diamonds: ColorClarityCut and Carat Weight. Today, the 4Cs of Diamond Quality is the universal method for assessing the quality of any diamond, anywhere in the world. The creation of the Diamond 4Cs meant two very important things: diamond quality could be communicated in a universal language, and diamond customers could now know exactly what they were about to purchase." -GIA

Ethical Diamond Sourcing

Diamonds have a violent and bloody history. Over the years they have been mined by my men, woman, and children under-paid and often forced in to labor. This is where the common phrase blood diamonds comes from.

Fortunately in 2003 the Kimberley Process was established. This means that today you can comfortably buy a diamond in the US knowing it it was ethically sourced 

Lab-Grown Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds. They are grown in highly controlled labs in pressurized chambers.

These diamonds make a more affordable option while maintaining all the properties of a natural diamond.
