Cut refers to the shape of a diamond. Oval shapes are becoming more popular, classic round is timeless which you cannot go wrong with. Cushion has been a popular cut for some time now. Emerald cuts are rectangular in shape and look very elegant. Princess diamond is squared shape and then there is radiant, just like its name it is very sparkly. Those are a few of my favourite shapes, however, there are many more to pick from. 

Clarity refers to the stones and perfections know as Inclusion. 

Carat, the term the bigger the better is not always true when it comes to diamonds, also different cuts in the same carat weight can look very different due to how deep or shallow the stone is. 
 Colour, there are five diamond colours on the chart. Colourless near colourless, slightly tinted, very light yellow and very-very yellow.
