We endeavor to find the best diamonds to fall within your budget and will always give unbiased advice.

Four characteristics determine a diamonds grading and value:

CUT

The cut of a diamond is crucial to its ability to reflect light. It is the one C governed by man’s skill rather than by nature – and it has significant influence on the value of a diamond. If a diamond is cut too deep, light escapes downwards and the centre will appear dark – absorbing rather than reflecting light. A very shallow cut results in light escaping through the base, causing the diamond to look glassy, watery and dull, even grey. However, when a diamond is cut to perfect proportions, light entering from any direction is reflected through the top of the stone giving it maximum fire and brilliance.

CARAT

The diamond weight will, broadly speaking, determine also the size of the stone; however a slightly deeper or shallower cut may result in very slight variations in the size of the “face” of the diamond. The weight or mass of a diamond or other gemstone is measured in carats. 5 carats are equal to 1 gram. One carat is divided into 100 points so a 25 “pointer” diamond is 0.25carats. Larger diamonds are rarer than smaller diamonds as large raw diamonds are less frequently found during mining. As the carat weight of a diamond increases, so does its rarity and its value, thus prices will be exponentially higher as the carat weight rises. A 1.00 carat diamond will be more than twice the price and value than that of a 0.50 carat diamond. Although size is the most obvious factor in determining the value of a diamond, two diamonds of equal size can have very unequal values depending on the other 3 C’s

COLOUR

Diamonds are found in all colours of the spectrum but most range from a pale yellow or brown tint to the rare, much sought after ‘colourless’ white. Diamonds are graded to their inner body hue using a white to yellow scale and essentially, the whiter a diamond, the more rare and valuable it is. The letters of the alphabet are used to denote the colour. Commercial white diamonds range between colours G and J.

CLARITY

Diamonds contain minute traces of non-crystallized carbon known as inclusions. These are nature’s fingerprints that make each diamond unique – and in gem-quality diamonds, they are usually only seen under magnification. Inclusions are only visible to the naked eye in diamonds rate I2 or below. In principle the fewer the inclusions, the finer the clarity and the more valuable the stone. Diamonds are rated from IF to P3

All LeaChi diamonds are authentic, natural diamonds which have not undergone irradiation, colour enhancement, laser drilling, fracture treatment or fissure filling. Each diamond is also guaranteed to have been obtained from non-conflict and legitimate sources.
