Every diamond is different in its way. They vary according to their size, colour, clarity, cut, carat weight and various other characteristics. The most important of the 4 Cs is cut as a diamond's sparkle is affected the most by it. Diamond graders use specific techniques and methods to differentiate and evaluate between diamonds according to their quality factors which are as discussed below:
Cut:- A skillfully cut diamond will have better optical properties as compared to a diamond which is improperly cut. Thus polishing and finishing plays a vital role in determining the quality and price of a diamond.
Colour:- It plays an important role in deciding the quality and price of a diamond. Especially in cases, where two loose diamonds are pretty much similar in rest of the characteristics, a faint difference in their colour can be constructive in deciding the main difference.
Clarity:- As per the general rule, the clearer the gemstone is, the higher its quality is. Thus a diamond with fewer impurities will be considered of better quality and brilliance than the rest and will sparkle more. However, inclusions can also be helpful in pointing out imitated diamonds from the genuine ones.

Fluorescence is the phenomenon in which an object glows when an object emits visible light. Some diamonds show this phenomenon when they are exposed to UV rays. This can cause them to release a bluish light or a yellow or orange light in rare cases. Once the UV light source (which can be from Sun and fluorescent lamps) is removed, the diamond stops fluorescing.
