Diamonds - 4C's

The 4C's of Diamond Grading

Every diamond is unique. Each reflects the story of its arduous journey from deep inside the earth to a cherished object of adornment. Yet all diamonds share certain features that allow us to compare and evaluate them. These features are called the 4Cs.

Diamond and Gemstone Grading


When you deal with a Master Valuer and Gemologist, you can be assured of consistency and accuracy!  Appraising is often a matter of opinion based upon learned techniques and applications.  When you have purchased the tools that help and allow for complete verification, it's easy to have a more accurate and consistent opinion.  Knowledgeable people within the industry rely on that, and you should too!

 Appraisals While You Wait!

We offer several different styles of appraisal, so you are able to choose the style that best fits your needs and storage abilities.  All of them contain most of the same valuable information, with presentation and size being the differentiating and sometimes limiting factors.  A specific appointment will be required for while you wait and watch service.
