Leave It to the 4Cs
Every diamond contains distinguishing characteristics making it unique. They’re known as the 4Cs.
The measure of a diamond’s weight.Generally speaking, the higher the number, the higher the cost.
An aspect evaluated on a colour scale ranging from D (colourless) to Z (light yellow).
As a testament to our high quality standards and customers, Birks diamonds span exclusively from D to J.
When a diamond forms itself, some inclusions and blemishes may appear.
A diamond is considered flawless when neither of the two can be seen under 10x magnification.
Not to be mistaken with its shape, the cut represents how well a diamond interacts with light.
It’s the most complex yet paramount factor in a diamond’s analysis.
