Clarity is possibly the most important of the factors affecting the quality and price of any diamond. Diamonds of all colors can be vary attractive. Diamonds of all different cuts look good.  Extremes of clarity can produce a brilliant magnificent diamond, or a dead, dull, and lifeless stone. Clarity is also sometimes called purity. The fact that clarity is also sometimes called quality shows the importance of this factor.  Clarity literally means "clearness" rather than lack of inclusions, and refers to the diamond's ability to allow the free passage of light without obstruction or absorption. Any inclusions, cleavages, cracks, or other natural features inside or defects on the surface will stop light from passing through the stone.

Carat weight denotes the size of a diamond, by its weight. Obviously it also affects the value or price of a diamond, because consumers tend to prefer bigger rather than smaller diamonds. Large diamonds are also rarer than small diamonds. Because there is higher demand and lower supply for large diamonds, they command higher prices.  Often people talk about the size of diamonds. Size in this context really means weight, as large diamonds will normally weigh more than small ones. 

Diamond cuts are sorted into three categories: brilliant, step and mixed cuts. Style and arrangement of diamond facets determine a diamond's cut category. Facets are the flat parts on a diamond's sides.

Round, oval and cushion are types of diamond shapes. A round diamond is the most popular diamond shape, and because of demand is usually the most expensive. Oval shape enhances the length and grace of fingers of the diamond wearer. Cushion shapes have rounded corners and larger facets, and can also come in squares or rectangles.

The Princess diamond shape is the second most popular choice. The Princess diamond is square, without trimmed edges. The Emerald diamond is rectangular, with trimmed edges. 

A Pear shaped diamond is also referred to as a Teardrop diamond. A Pear shaped diamond is a combination of round and marquise shapes.  Heart Shaped diamonds are not commonly used in engagement rings, but are commonly seen in other jewelry such as earrings

The Marquise diamond is a slim oval shape, with pointed ends. Slim oval shaped diamonds such as a Marquise are mostly chosen for bridal sets and not for engagement rings only. Radiant shaped diamonds are similar to Emerald shapes, except that Radiant diamonds are more square than rectangular.

Diamonds are usually thought of as sparkling, colorless gems. It is this colorlessness that allows for the incredible and breathtaking play of light that we all have come to associate with the diamond. The color of diamond is primarily dependent on inclusions and foreign matter within the diamond's structure.

In the normal range of the diamond color-grading scale, the more colorless a diamond is, the higher it is graded on the scale. In terms of pricing, diamonds with a higher grade will be more costly, while diamonds rating lower on the scale, thus having more color, will normally prove to be less costly. In order to establish which diamonds are which colors, diamond color-grading scales have been created.

Today, there are far fewer diamond color-grading scales in use, with GIA's being the most used and well respected, allowing anyone to view the results of rigorous testing for color-grading in a written report for a particular diamond. GIA's grading scale ranges from the colorless D to the highly colored Z. It is important to be aware that while most diamonds are graded on a scale measuring the varying degrees of their lack of color, or whiteness, this is not the only sought after type of diamond. There are those diamonds in which various colors are prominent enough to arouse desire for their rarity and distinguished characteristics.

In regards to most diamonds, a lack of color is the most desirable of qualities. What most of us think of when we think of the perfect diamond is of one that shines with a clear brilliance, sparkling and catching the eyes of all who are present. The perfectly clear (or white) diamond is a rarity in the diamond world, and so they carry a large cost.

Most diamonds have foreign substances, usually in the form of trace minerals, trapped within their crystalline structure. It is these foreign atoms that absorb certain wavelengths in light's color spectrum, casting a measure of color onto and within the diamond, thus producing a certain color in the diamond.
