MEET THE 4Cs

MEET THE 4CS

Swarovski Created Diamonds are hand-selected and graded in the exact same manner as mined diamonds. Because each of our lab-grown diamonds is unique, every diamond crafted in our labs is evaluated by the industry standard of the 4Cs: clarity, color, cut, and carat weight. 

THE PERFECT CUT

A diamond’s cut refers to the stone’s proportion, symmetry, and polish after being shaped and faceted by a cutter. 
The cut of a laboratory created diamond is essential to its beauty. It is evaluated according to the parameters of Excellent / Very Good / Good and Fair. Swarovski Created Diamonds are available in the best quality, the Excellence and Very Good Cut.

THE COLOR - PURE BEAUTY

Like a pristine water droplet, a chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond has no discernable color.
Most (white) diamonds used in jewelry range in color from colorless to slightly yellow.

CARAT

A carat is a unit of weight used specifically to measure precious stones. The weight of a laboratory created diamond is also expressed in carats (ct). One carat weighs 1/5 of a gram and is divided into 100 points.


GREATER CLARITY

No diamond is 100% pure. But the closer it comes to purity, the better its clarity.
