    Diamond Clarity

    Clarity refers to the number and size of tiny imperfections found in in every diamond under 10 x magnifications. These imperfections are not visible to the naked eye. According to experts, clarity has the least impact on the diamond's physical appearance. Diamond of the least imperfections are said to have the highest clarity. At Sunny diamonds we offer internally flawless diamonds, with the Excellent cut.

    Cut Grades

    The most important characteristic of a diamond is its cut. It is the reason a diamond sparkles and shines with such brilliance. Always pick the highest cut grade possible within your budget. You can judge a diamond by its reflection or ‘sparkle’. When a diamond is cut with the proper proportions, light is returned out of the top of the diamond if the cut is too shallow, light leaks out of the bottom. If the cut is too deep it escapes from the sides. At Sunny Diamonds, we only offer stones of superior cut and unmatched brilliance.

    EXCELLENT

    GOOD

    POOR

    EXCELLENT CUT

    Sunny Diamonds uses the excellent cut to create diamonds with stunning brilliance.

    VERY GOOD CUT

    Diamonds with cuts that reflect nearly as much light as an excellent cut. Represents the top 15 % quality based on cut.

    GOOD CUT

    Diamonds with cuts that reflect most of the light that enters it. Represents the top 25% of diamond quality based on cut.

    FAIR CUT

    Diamonds with cuts that allow a much light to escape from the side and bottom, thus reducing its brilliance, but still considered as quality stones. Represents the top 35% quality based on cut.

    POOR CUT

    The poor cut grade includes diamonds, which are so deep and narrow or shallow and wide that they lose most of the light from the sides and bottom. We do not sell Poor Cut grades.

    Diamond Carat

    A carat is the measure of a diamond’s weight, but not an accurate depiction of its size. To calculate a diamond’s size, carat weight is always considered along with distance (mm) across the top of the diamond and the diamond’s cut grade.

    How to choose a carat weight?

    The important factors determining the carat weight of a diamond are the correct finger size, the size of your setting, and also your budget. Diamond prices are the highest at the full and half-carat weights. Gems just below these weights cost a lot lesser, and as carat weight is distributed across the whole diamond, small size
    differences are almost impossible to detect. Another factor to be considered is the size of the finger. The smaller your fingers, the larger the diamond will appear. A 1.5-carat diamond solitaire looks much larger on a size 4 finger than on a size 8.

    Diamond Colour

    A diamond’s colour is actually a reference to its lack of colour. Diamond colours range from D the highest grade which is colourless diamonds to Z which are diamonds with a brownish or yellowish tint. Picking a colour is really a matter of personal choice. Choose a colour that you will enjoy wearing.

    D
    Absolutely colourless. The highest colour grade. Extremely rare
    E - F
    Colourless. Minute traces of colour can be detected by an expert gemologist. Considered a rare diamond.
    G - H
    Near-colourless. Colour difficult to detect unless compared side-by-side against diamonds of better grades.
    I - J
    Faint - yellow. Slightly detectable warmth or tone.
    K - M
    Very Light yellow. Not carried by Sunny Diamonds
    N - Z
    Light yellow. Not carried by Sunny Diamonds.

    CERTIFICATE
    After you have decided on which diamond to choose, remember to ask for your copy of the certification that will guarantee that your stone is genuine and has been examined.
