Three Gems

Cut. Color. Clarity. Carat.

The 4 C’s - They are the focus of any diamond purchase. Well, sometimes its the 5th C – Cost! But I digress. If you are a jeweler, the 4 C’s help you set price and form the basis for the conversation you have with your customers. The ability to effectively communicate these characteristics of a particular stone is critical to a successful sale.

When grading a diamond, it is important to use a high quality gemological microscope with a rotating/tilting base and multiple illuminators to make it easy to view facets and surface graining. A digital microscope (with HD Camera and Screen) allows you to more easily view the stone and capture images. It also allows you to share live images with prospective customers, enhancing the sales process.

- Tilting/rotating base for ease of use
