Diamonds are special and each is unique. They are cut and polished from rough material that forms with characteristics that can look like clouds, inclusions, colors, pinpoints, fluorescence, feathers and more. Not every feature is going to be revealed in a diamond grading certificate, especially the overall appearance and WOW factor. The "Four Cs" can't tell the whole story.
