However, for the average diamond shopper, all you need to know is whether the diamond shines with brilliance or appears dull. Perhaps the most bizarre form of necklaces are those worn by the Pa Dong Long Neck people who are part of the Karen tribal group that live along the border between Thailand and Burma. From the age of 6 years old, brass rings are snapped around the necks of young girls, a few every year, up to a limit of 20 rings although there is a woman on record as having 28 around her neck.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Proportions of the premium cut diamonds are very close to ideal cut. Premium cut diamond may be close to the ideal cut proportions and look just identical. By all means such diamonds are considered well cut. In fact, many consumers cannot distinguish between the ideal cut diamond and the premium cut. Appearance of diamond is very subjective and cannot be fully evaluated just by their proportions along.
Color H color grade diamonds are second best in a colorless category. Most H color diamonds have a very light yellow tint that may be more noticeable when the diamond is placed on a white surface. Such diamonds look beautiful in platinum and white gold and offer outstanding value.
Clarity VS1 diamonds have very small inclusions. Usually an experienced grader does not find any internal faults, but does not have great difficulties to see the inclusions when he moves the diamond a little from side to side. Typical inclusions of this group are small, light clouds or small light cracks on the girdle.
