Baker Brothers Diamond Guide

The Diamond 4Cs

​We pride ourselves on our diamonds at Baker Brothers and were the first jeweller to cut out the middlemen and go direct to the diamond buying capital of the world, Antwerp. When you visit our boutique our Diamond Specialists will sit and guide you through the 4Cs, four crucial characteristics used to guarantee you’re choosing the best diamond.
CUT
___________

The cut goes beyond the shape of the diamond, this is where the expertise of sparkle comes to life.

MOST BRILLIANT

The cut is the most important factor when releasing the beauty of your diamond. An expertly cut diamond of perfect proportion, symmetry and polish interacts perfectly with the light and creates that famed sparkle that can catch your eye across a room.

CLARITY
______________

Diamonds are as unique as snowflakes with no two being the same; these characteristics are part of their make-up and dictate a diamond's clarity.
Diamond clarity explained
When we look at the clarity of a diamond, we refer to the natural inclusions and blemishes which may be found on a gemstone. Diamonds are natural and due to the intense conditions under which they are created, they all contain inclusions (internal) and blemishes (surface). A diamond does not have to be flawless to be beautiful; it’s all about the type, size, colour and location of these imperfections that determine its clarity.
 
All Baker Brothers diamonds have clarity from Flawless to Si1, but unlike most, we inspect every diamond we use to ensure that the inclusions are not detrimental to a diamond’s sparkle and durability.

COLOUR
_______________

Visible to the naked eye, diamond colour refers to the natural tint inherent in white diamonds.
 
Baker Brothers only ever select diamonds between D and H colour

CARAT
____________

Carat denotes the weight of a diamond, not the size.
Diamond carat size chart
It’s important to remember that carat weight can appear differently depending on the shape of the diamond, such as round brilliant, princess, pear, oval, cushion, marquise, emerald, radiant or heart. A diamond can have a higher carat weight without appearing larger and two diamonds of the same carat weight can vary in size depending on their cut.
