Polished diamonds have captivated hearts and minds for centuries with their timeless beauty and elegance. These exquisite gems have been skillfully cut and polished to unleash their true brilliance. At Meru Gems, we understand the allure of polished diamonds and offer a vast selection to cater to your preferences. Our collection boasts a wide range of polished diamonds in various carat weights, colors, cuts, and clarity.


The cut of a polished diamond is a key factor that determines its brilliance and visual appeal. There are several popular cuts to choose from, including round, cushion, pear, oval, radiant, marquise, princess, asscher, heart, emerald, baguette, and rose cuts. Each cut has its own unique characteristics, showcasing the diamond's shape and facets in distinctive ways. From the timeless elegance of the round cut to the romantic allure of the heart shape, there's a cut to suit every individual's preference and style. The choice of cut can greatly influence the overall beauty and sparkle of a polished diamond.


The colour or grade of a polished diamond is a significant aspect that determines its value and appearance. Diamonds are graded on a color scale ranging from D to Z, with D representing the most colorless diamonds and Z representing diamonds with noticeable yellow or brown hues. The color/grade of a diamond affects its overall beauty and brilliance, with colorless diamonds (D-F) being highly sought after for their exceptional purity and sparkle. As you move down the color scale, diamonds may exhibit subtle hints of color, adding character and uniqueness to each stone. The wide range of color/grade options allows individuals to select a polished diamond that aligns with their personal preferences and desired aesthetic, ensuring a truly one-of-a-kind gem.


The clarity of a polished diamond refers to the presence or absence of internal and external flaws, known as inclusions and blemishes. Diamonds are graded on a clarity scale that ranges from FL and IF to I. In between, there are various clarity grades such as VVS1 and VVS2, VS1 and VS2, SI1 and SI2, and I1 and I2. Flawless diamonds are exceptionally rare and free from any internal or external flaws, while Internally Flawless (IF) diamonds may have some insignificant surface blemishes. As you move down the clarity scale, the presence of inclusions and blemishes becomes more apparent. However, it's important to note that many inclusions are not visible to the naked eye and do not affect the overall beauty or durability of the diamond. The choice of clarity grade depends on personal preferences and budget, with each clarity grade offering a unique combination of value and visual appeal.


The carat weight of a polished diamond refers to its size and is one of the primary factors that contribute to its value. Carat weight is a unit of measurement where one carat is equivalent to 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams. Diamonds are available in a range of carat weights, from smaller stones to larger, more substantial gems. As carat weight increases, so does the size and rarity of the diamond, which often correlates with its price. When selecting a diamond, the carat weight is an essential consideration as it directly influences the overall appearance and perceived value of the gem. However, it's important to note that carat weight should be evaluated in conjunction with other factors like cut, color, and clarity to ensure a balanced and well-proportioned diamond that suits personal preferences and budget.
