Diamond necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings. Which would make her happiest? Visit C. Aaron Peñaloza Jewelers for assistance in choosing diamond jewelry that offers the maximum in quality and beauty for your investment.

A beautiful diamond is a complex blend of reflected and refracted light—a sparkling dance of brilliance and fire. Each diamond has its own characteristics and no two stones are exactly alike. Diamonds are judged by the 4C’s—their Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat weight. The staff at our jewelry store, including our Graduate Gemologist, will show you a variety of diamonds to help you understand what diamond grades mean to the appearance and value of a diamond. We can help you choose jewelry that captures your style, meets your budget, and features exceptional diamonds that can be worn with pride for a lifetime.

We also can assist you in choosing diamond engagement and wedding rings, and custom-designed diamond jewelry.

The 4C’s of Diamonds

Diamonds are graded on the basis of the 4C’s: Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat weight.

Color— A scale measuring the color of diamonds from colorless to yellow, brown and even pink, blue, and green. The highest graded diamonds generally have no color—like a drop of pure water.

Clarity— The characteristics of a diamond when viewed under 10X magnification. A flawless diamond will have no inclusions or blemishes when viewed under magnification.

Cut— This is an evaluation of how the facets of the diamond interact with light.

Carat Weight— The precise measurement of how much a diamond weighs, usually expressed in decimal points.
