As we have already discussed the diamond’s 4 Cs to consider in choosing a diamond, colored gemstones have 4 Cs of their own: Color, Color, Color, and Color! This statement may sound like exaggeration, but not so much as you might think. Generally speaking, the finer and rarer the color, the less impact cutting, clarity, and carat weight have on the value of the colored gemstone.
As with diamonds, clarity refers to absence of internal flaws (inclusions) or external blemishes. Flawless in colored gemstones is perhaps even rarer than diamonds. However, while clarity is important, and cleaner the gemstone the better, flawlessness in colored gemstones does not usually carry the premium that it does with diamonds. Light pastel-colored gemstones will require better clarity because the flaws are more readily visible; in darker toned gemstones the flaws may not be as important a variable because they are masked by the depth of color.
Color and cutting are the most important criteria in determining the beauty of colored gemstone, after which carat weight must be factored in.
Systems for grading colored gemstones are relatively new and standards are not yet established worldwide. As a result, certificate of grading reports for colored gemstone are not yet used extensively. While diamond grading reports are widely used to describe and confirm diamond quality, grading reports for colored gemstones have a much more limited value.
