Diamonds Demystified [Infographic]

Posted By: Tor Published: 27/02/2017

There's no denying that diamonds are a girl's best friend but how much can you truly say you know about these stunning stones? To simplify an understanding as to how diamonds are valued and what makes them so stunning and unique, you need to understand the 4 C's - carat, clarity, colour and cut.

To help you do just that, we've put together our fantastic 'Diamonds Demystified' infographic which looks at what the 4 C's are, what they mean and why they can mean that two diamonds of the same size are valued so differently.

Quite simply, it's no surprise that diamonds are the world's most popular stone and are worn each day to symbolise both eternal love and prosperity.
