The carat refers to the weight of a diamond, not the actual physical size as is commonly believed.
The colour grade actually refers to how colourless a diamond is. Diamonds at the higher end of the scale will be colourless thus appearing white. While lower graded diamonds will have visible colour instead of a white appearance.
The clarity of a diamond refers to how many inclusions or imperfections a diamond has. A diamond with less inclusions will sparkle more, meaning it will be a higher grade and will be more valuable.
