A diamond grown in a laboratory has the same chemical, physical and optical properties as a mined diamond and, therefore, the same qualities of clarity and color. The stones selected by MAZARIN are chosen from among the best combinations of the four criteria that determine the value of a diamond, called the 4 Cs: its color (color), its purity (clarity), its size (cut) and its weight in carats. .the colour
The whiter a diamond, the more rare and therefore valuable it is. The international grading scale starts at D to qualify the purest diamond and follows the alphabetical order up to Z for the most colored diamond. The diamonds in the MAZARIN collections essentially belong to categories D, E and F.the purity
It is determined by the number, size, nature and position of the imperfections which, inside or on the surface of the stone, act on the passage of light. The international system measures it in six main categories: FL (no defect), IF (no visible defect), VVS (very very small inclusions), VS (very small inclusions), SI (small inclusions) and I (visible inclusions on the outside). naked eye). The diamonds in the Mazarin collections essentially belong to the VVS categories.the size
It is chosen in such a way as to increase the brilliance of the stone tenfold by cutting each facet with extreme precision. For each diamond, Mazarin looks for the cut whose proportions, symmetry and polish will give it the most brilliance, favoring in particular pear, emerald and brilliant cuts.the carat
It is the unit of measurement of the diamond, or 0.2 grams for 1 carat. The value of the stone varies according to its caratage, but also its rarity.
