Erin Fitzpatrick

You already know Kim Kardashian's engagement ring is massive, but do you know just how valuable it really is? Lorraine Schwartz (who designed the ring) posted a throwback Instagram of one of Kim's past covers, with the hashtag #DFLAWLESS. And as Glamour pointed out, it's not just any old hashtag—it refers to specific terms relating to the diamond.

The letter D is a measure of the diamond's color. According to the Gemological Institute of America, diamonds are rated on a scale of D to Z, with D referring to a completely colorless diamond, which is considered the rarest and most valuable. In other words, "the less color, the higher the value."

"Flawless" is a specific term relating to the diamond's clarity. According to GIA, flawless is the highest possible clarity rating because the diamonds have no external blemishes or internal imperfections, called inclusions. The more you know!
