10. The Four Cs
The quality of any diamond is determined by the Cut, Clarity, Color, and Carat weight. The value of a diamond is not determined by the carat weight alone. Large diamonds are valuable only if other fine diamond characteristics are present. The highest clarity rating is Flawless meaning it has almost no inclusions. First grade stones are Slightly Included and are still considered valuable. Colorless is the best color a diamond can be and next is Near Colorless. Cut refers to the precision of facets, polish, proportion, and symmetry of a diamond, which contribute to the brilliance of the stone. David Yurman uses diamonds from the highest ends of the Four Cs.

The diamonds are chosen and sourced exclusively from sources that adhere to the Kimberley Process, which is a coalition designed to stop the flow of conflict diamonds.
