The 4Cs of Diamonds
Held to the highest industry standards, each Pandora Brilliance stone is masterfully crafted and certified by the 4Cs: cut, colour, clarity and carat, ensuring the exceptional quality of each of our lab-created diamonds.
Cut defines a diamond’s personality and fire. By perfecting precise angles, proportions and symmetry, every stone we create is masterfully cut to draw maximum brilliance and sparkle. All Pandora Brilliance lab-created diamonds are round brilliant, excellent cut – the highest standard for cut.
The absence of colour is an important factor in determining the quality of a diamond, and they are judged on a scale from D to Z. For our diamonds, we accept nothing less than “J” or better – a rating of Near Colourless – meaning it is very difficult for the eye to perceive any colour at all in its iconic setting.
A diamond's clarity grade refers to the presence or absence of flaws in the diamond. The fewer the flaws, or "inclusions" within a diamond, the more brilliant and sparkling it will appear. All Pandora's diamonds are rated VS2+, meaning that they will appear flawless to the naked eye.
Carat denotes the weight of the diamond; not its size. No matter what carat weight you choose from the Pandora Brilliance collection, you can rest assured that the quality across the other 3Cs remains as guaranteed.
Each of our diamonds comes with a certificate testifying to its unique cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. This certificate, along with your receipt of purchase, also serves as the product’s warranty.
