Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
Gemstones and Diamonds have different cut, clarity, color and carat weight (4Cs) which determines its price.
Cut is the shape of the diamond (or the way it has been cut from the original rock) which affects its brilliance and fire, Color is the amount of color that a diamond has within itself (generally, the lesser the color more valuable it is), Clarity is the presence or rather the absence of natural blemishes and Carat weight is the actual weight of the diamond.
This is why you may find a Granoldi Verde White Gold Emerald & Diamond Ring for $879.99* and also for $729.99* due to the diamond or gemstone used.
*Prices are indicative. Please refer the actual product for accurate prices.
Generally, Karat is used to indicate purity of Gold Alloys while Carat is a unit of mass used for measuring diamonds, gemstones and pearls.
Karat is abbreviated as Kt, K or at times Ct.
Purest form of gold is 24-Karat (24K or 24Kt) while 14-Karat gold is 58.33% pure with other metals such as Rhodium mixed to provide more structural strength. The gold jewelry may have etching on it denoting its purity. 24K Gold is not used to make jewelry as it very soft. Granoldi Verde offers most of its gold jewelry in 14K and 10K versions for greater durability.
One carat is equivalent to 0.2 grams or 200 milligrams. So diamonds can be of 1-carat, 4-carat etc. Carat is abbreviated as CD.
Most of the gemstones available in the market are treated which means they undergo some process to make it look more brilliant or brighter than its natural state. These processes may vary according to the type of stone and the need.
Untreated stones are very rare and such gemstones tend to be more expensive than the treated gemstones and at times are more expensive than diamonds.
White Gold is gold mixed with certain other alloys such as Rhodium to give it a white color instead of the natural yellow.
