Diamonds are an ultimate symbol of love. And it’s not a surprise, considering that the conditions for diamond formation are incredibly specific.
Most natural diamonds are formed at incredibly high temperatures and pressure, and in one of two places: underneath continental plates, as deep as 100 miles into the Earth’s mantle, or at the site of a meteorite strike.
Although these are interesting facts, there is much, much more to know about the beloved diamond, and we at Trent Jewelers believe it’s important for our customers to be informed of key information when shopping for diamonds.
Below you will find a brief description of the “4Cs”, the GIA’s (Gemological Institute of America) own tool used to objectively compare and evaluate diamonds. Additionally, you can find more information on the GIA's website.
