Diamanten Qualität: 4 Cs

Diamond quality: 4 Cs


We only use synthetic diamonds of the best diamond quality for our jewelry. These are grown in the laboratory. You can find out exactly how this works in our article Lab grown diamonds read. Even though our synthetic diamonds don't grow naturally, they are just as pure, beautiful and unique as their natural counterparts. They are chemically and optically identical to the rocks that grow underground over millions of years. Only: They are bred much faster and are not nearly as harmful to the environment. Read more about the improved environmental conditions in our sustainability report and in ours We mind initiative.

Finally, the diamond is a symbol of love

1. Carat - weight

Very few people know that a carat describes the weight of the diamond. A diamond carat is 0.20 grams. Depending on the cut of the diamond, a carat can vary in size, but the look can often be deceiving: If a stone has a large cut and is cut less deeply, it may appear more valuable than it actually is. The carat weight does not indicate the size of the stone..

2. Color - color

Color, i.e. the diamond color, shows what color a white diamond has, for example whether it is colorless or has a tint. The best diamond quality is colorless or a very fine white and therefore the most valuable. Color is one of the most important factors in determining quality and ranges from D = colorless to Z = clear tint. The white, synthetic diamonds from Maren Jewelery always have the color DG = colorless to almost colorless..

3. Cut – cut quality

The cut of the diamond is one of the most important criteria for determining the quality and value of a diamond. This is also the reason why the cut has become more and more important in recent years. However, the cut has nothing to do with the shape of the cut, whether a stone is cut round or square. Rather, it is the quality of the cut, how the facets of the cut stone interact and shine with the light. The better a stone is cut, the better the light can break and the stone can sparkle..

4. Clarity - Purity

The diamond clarity or clarity describes the degree of purity of a diamond. Diamonds are carbon compounds. Normally, these develop over millions of years under high pressure. Other minerals can also get lost in the stone, these are categorized into three levels: IF=flawless, VS=very small inclusions and SI=small inclusions. The visibility of the inclusions and thus the diamond quality is always evaluated under 10x magnification

The perfect diamond

There is nothing else you should consider when choosing a stone for your engagement ring choose. After all, the diamond is a symbol of your love and should be correspondingly beautiful. We therefore always use the following diamond quality for our laboratory-grown diamonds: The color of our stones is DG, i.e. colorless to almost colorless. The purity is vvs-vs, which means: almost no inclusions and the grinding quality is "very good" to excellent. In our opinion, the overall very high quality of the laboratory diamonds used is the most suitable combination for jewelry. An even higher quality will be more expensive, but cannot be seen with the naked eye as better, i.e. more sparkling, whiter or more flawlessen

What diamond quality should an engagement ring have?

An engagement is a very emotional and personal moment of love, which the engagement ring symbolically captures for eternity. If an engagement ring with precious stones is to be chosen, in addition to the quality of the diamond, it is essential to evaluate whether the Engagement ring diamonds fairly traded, certified and traceable, or artificially bred in a lab. From a size of 0.5 carats, the diamond should come with an official quality certificate, as is the case with the synthetic diamonds at Maren Jewellery. In addition, the diamond quality should be evaluated using the 4 Cs in order to determine the quality of the stones and thus of the entire piece of jewellery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a VS1 clarity diamond high quality?

Yes, VS1 means: Almost no inclusions. The inclusions in the stone cannot be seen with the naked eye, so the stone has a beautiful clarity and good refraction and is therefore of high quality. The inclusions are only easily recognizable with a 10x magnifying glass.

Can one also classify the quality of synthetic diamonds using the 4 Cs?

Indeed synthetic diamonds can be of different diamond quality. Since their chemical composition and purity are identical to their natural counterparts, they can be classified in the same way as the 4 Cs.
