O’Connor explained that it has to do with the four C’s of diamonds: cut, color, clarity and carat-weight.

“Because of the emerald cut of Kim’s ring, you know that the diamond was extremely high quality to begin with,” he said, explaining that emerald cuts have fewer but larger facets than round cuts, which can conceal flaws easier.

“The color would have to be colorless to near colorless, which is enhanced by the natural whiteness that platinum provides.”

Lorraine Schwartz, Kim Kardashian’s go-to jeweler, also gets a stamp of approval from O’Connor.
