To help you choose the perfect diamond, Indy Facets has a complete state of the art Gemological Lab. We have all the latest technology to truly measure and identify every characteristic of a diamond.
Color, clarity, carat weight and cut, commonly referred to as “the 4 C’s of diamonds”, are the four main characteristics of a diamond that set the initial value. Therefore, they are very important to narrowing down a selection of diamonds to one that is just right for you. There is only one trusted place online to learn about color, clarity, carat weight and cut; the Gemological Institute of America or GIA (www.gia.edu).
There are a lot of inconsistencies in diamond grading and each diamond needs to be selected in person with the help of an experienced Graduate Gemologist to identify what is beautiful to you. Reach out to an on-campus Graduate Gemologist with at least several years of industry experience. If you have questions don’t hesitate to contact Shaun, he’d love to speak to you.
