There are four main factors which determine the value of the diamond. 
 They are: Size (Carat weight), Cut, Color and Clarity. 
 They are often referred to as the "Four C's".

Learn about the various diamond shapes and their attributes

Possibly the first metal used by humans, gold was valued for ornaments, and magical powers were attributed to it.  It is naturally a soft, light yellow to vivid yellow corrosion-resistant metal.  It won't tarnish, rust, or corrode, and though it's very strong, it is also the most malleable of all metals.  By definition, pure gold is 24 carats, and thus a 75% gold alloy is 18 carats.  Chief producers are South Africa, the U.S., Russia, Australia, and Canada.  

Platinum is a bright, silver-white color precious metal.  Platinum is considered to be the most secure metal for gem settings because of its resistance to damage from corrosion, heat and chemical attack.

Platinum is the purest precious metal with an alloy of 90 percent or higher. Look for a stamp of 950 Plat or 900Pt on platinum respectively indicating 95 or 90 percent purity. Rhodium, part of the platinum family, is a metal often used to plate silver, white gold and platinum to produce a brighter, harder finish.  Like white gold, it makes very white diamonds appear bright.


It is a smooth, lustrous, variously colored "organic gem" material formed when an irritant, such as sand or a parasite, becomes lodged in the shell of an oyster.  Pearl, one of the most precious types of jewelry, has been harvested and worn for more than 4,000 years, symbolizing purity, virtue and modesty.
