Shortly after their engagement, Lauren and Kenny visited The Breakers in search of the perfect venue… and quickly decided it was the dream come true location for their wedding weekend in paradise.

“Our favorite memory from the wedding day was our ceremony… Being under the gorgeous acrylic Chuppah with our parents, surrounded by all of our family and friends was the most special part of the day,” Lauren shares. “I remember hearing the waves crashing and the sun shinning on us while we said our vows to one another… It could not have been more perfect.”

We all know diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but do you know your 4Cs education? We dream about the heartfelt proposal and something sparkly… but when describing and accessing the quality of diamonds it’s all about: Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat.

Here’s a little help from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the creator of the Diamond 4Cs and world’s trusted source for unbiased assessment…

COLOR

The diamond color evaluation of most gem-quality diamonds is based on the absence of color. A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond has no hue, like a drop of pure water, and consequently, a higher value.

See the GIA’s D-to-Z grading scale.

CLARITY

Natural diamonds are the result of carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep in the earth. Evaluating diamond clarity involves determining the number, size, relief, nature, and position of blemishes and internal characteristics, as well as how these affect the overall appearance of the stone. While no diamond is perfectly pure, the closer it comes, the higher its value.

See the GIA clarity scale.

CUT

Diamonds are renowned for their ability to transmit light and sparkle so intensely. We often think of a diamond’s cut as shape (round, emerald, pear), but a diamond’s cut grade is really about how well its facets interact with light.

CARAT

Diamond carat weight is the measurement of how much a diamond weighs. A metric “carat” is defined as 200 milligrams. Each carat can be subdivided into 100 ‘points.’ This allows very precise measurements to the hundredth decimal place. Diamond weights greater than one carat are expressed in carats and decimals. A 1.08 carat stone would be described as ‘one point oh eight carats.

But always remember: at the end of the day, all that matters is that your love your fiance and the ring makes you smile and feel like a bride to be!
