This was due to the fact that moissanite would often fool a jeweler into thinking it was a natural diamond. In the 2nd century during the Roman Empire, earrings became a popular way for rich women to show off their wealth and the use of precious gemstones in the jewelery also became more popular. During the Middle Ages, earrings became less popular and practical due to the popularity of elaborate hairstyles and headdresses.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds of fair cut quality are still quite attractive, but they may not be as brilliant as the top 3 grades. Fair cut diamonds are proportioned to yield more carat weight from the diamond rough. Such diamonds may be attractive to budget-conscious customers.
Color Trained people can see yellow in a J color diamond pretty easily. You can also do this by placing the diamonds upside down on a white piece of paper and looking at them from the side. J-color diamonds offer an excellent trade off for price and quality - excellent choice for the budget conscious.
Clarity SI1 clarity diamonds are slightly included. SI1 diamonds have some inclusions visible under 10x magnification but not easily visible to the naked eye. A diamond with this grade of clarity is an excellent choice for someone on a limited budget.
