Diamond Buying Guide

At Jama Jewels, we understand that choosing the perfect diamond is an art. Our Diamond Buying Guide is here to assist you in exploring and understanding the industry standards for cut, clarity, color, and carat, ensuring you make an informed and confident decision.

Diamond Ratings and Grades:

Our team of trained gemologists, equipped with specialized instruments, meticulously measures the weight and dimensions of each diamond and assesses its quality characteristics, including cut, color, and clarity.


For your peace of mind, our diamonds are independently verified for quality and origin. We provide expert opinions through diamond certificates or grading reports, which are issued by distinguished independent gemology labs. We are proud to have our diamonds certified by some of the world's leading gem grading labs, such as GIA, IGI, HRD, and GCAL. Feel free to request an electronic copy of any diamond's lab certificate.

Determining Diamond Quality:

Just like snowflakes, each diamond possesses its own unique set of characteristics that skilled cutters work to accentuate, revealing the stone's true beauty. The 4 Cs—cut, color, clarity, and carat—collectively determine a diamond's overall rating and quality. At Jama Jewels, we recognize that individual preferences vary, and we are here to help you prioritize the factors that matter most to you.

How Diamond Ratings and Grades Are Determined:

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is the world leader in providing unbiased gem ratings and grades. Their meticulous standards set the benchmark for diamond quality, creating a scale that serves as a comprehensive guide for jewelers and appraisers.
1. Diamond Cut: The cut of a diamond refers to its facets, symmetry, and reflective properties, directly influencing its brilliance and beauty. Our experts can guide you in understanding the importance of a diamond's cut and how it impacts its overall appearance.
2. Diamond Color: Color grading is based on the natural color or lack thereof visible within a diamond, as per the GIA grade scale. At Jama Jewels, we offer diamonds within the "colorless" and "near-colorless" range, with a focus on rarity and value.
3. Diamond Clarity: Clarity is a measure of the visibility of natural microscopic inclusions and imperfections within a diamond. We value diamonds with exceptional clarity, as they are considered rare and highly prized.
4. Diamond Carat: Carat weight is the standard unit for measuring a diamond's size. It is often the most apparent factor when comparing diamonds. Our team can help you find the perfect balance between carat weight and overall diamond quality.
