When diamonds are being graded the first thing that is taken into account is the color. If a diamond has less color, it is graded higher. A trained professional will check the diamond under a microscope and will compare it to other diamonds of various colors.

After the color check it is time to check the clarity. More clear diamonds are a higher grade. If a diamond is more clear it means that there are no inclusions that can be seen in the stone.

Cut is another thing that needs to be checked on. There are five different grades that a diamond can get when the cut is getting tested. The cut of the diamond affects the amount of sparkle on the stone. A machine is used to capture the diamond at 360 degrees to make sure that the whole stone is checked.

Overall, these are three important things that are looked at when a diamond is being graded.
