When cut the right way, the diamond will sparkle more. Diamond cuts are measured by way of table percentage, so always ask for it. Cut also refers to the shape such as round, pear and oval.
Clarity is simply the clearness of the stone. The diamond can be perfect or flawless or it could be less than that. Colors generally come in range of D – X for white and yellow diamonds. D is whitest while around S they become “Fancy” yellow diamonds.
