Information You Should Know When Looking to Buy Jewellery

By Peter Roberts

For the average person looking at jewellery can be exciting, but confusing. What do all these terms mean?

Jewellery terms, especially relating to actual Gem stones, are very important because the price of the final item is dictated by the stone quality and cut. Following are some of the terms you'll come across.

Blemish: Imperfections found on the surface of a Diamond.

Brilliance: describes how well a diamond reflects white light.

Carat: is a unit of weight measurement used for weighing diamonds. For more information see The 4 Cs of Diamonds

Clarity:How "clear" the diamond is. For more information see The 4 Cs of Diamonds

Cloud: Most diamond defects are dark. This however is a milky colour, and a lot less noticable as a result.

Colour: The tint of the diamond. For more information see The 4 Cs of Diamonds

Crown: The upper surface of a cut diamond.

CT or CTS: Carat Total Weight of a diamond.

CTW: Carat Total Weight of a diamonds on piece of jewelry.

Cut: The shape of a finished diamond. For more information see The 4 Cs of Diamonds

Eye Clean: Diamond looks clear to the naked eye. For more information see The 4 Cs of Diamonds

Facets:The number of angles cut into a diamond. The more facets the shinier the diamonds appearence.

Finish: As you may expect, this is the quality of the diamond's workmanship.

Make: The cut and proportion of a diamond.

Polish: How well buffed the facets of the diamond are.

Symmetry: Good diamonds have been cut symetrical.

Table:Top surface of a cut diamond. Flat like a table top.

I trust this will help you when next looking to spend some of your hard earned money.
