A Diamond Jewelry Buyer that Values the 4 C's
It is essential for any experienced appraiser to value the diamond separately from the gold, platinum or silver they are set in.. Most importantly, it is vital to assess a diamond on the 4 C's. They are:
- Cut - This is looking at how well a diamond's facets interact with lighting. This is a skill that sets the symmetry, proportions and polish that returns light unlike any other precious gem in this world.
- Color - A diamond is valued best with a lack of color. The distinctions of diamond's color are very subtle, yet there are many different hues. The D-to-Z Color Grading Scale is now used internationally.
- Clarity - This is on the inclusions and blemishes found in a diamond.
- Carat - A metric carat is equivalent to 200 milligrams. This is the measurement used for the weight or size of the carat. Many jewelers also reference to them as points. For example, a .25 carat us a "twenty-five pointer".

Any reputable jeweler knows to value the precious metal separate from the diamond itself. West Valley Pawn & Gold has that skillset and training to provide a quality appraisal of your diamond jewelry.
