Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds of premium cut proportions are almost as good as ideal. Most people will not be able to distinguish an idea cut from premium. Less diamond material is lost in the process of cutting thus making the diamonds less expansive then ideally cut ones. In short premium cut reflects almost as much light as the ideal-cut, but for a lower price.
Color An E color diamond is extremely rare and slightly less expensive than a D but is so similar that most people won’t be able to tell the difference. You pay a serious premium for an E color diamond. Diamonds of this color grade will appear colorless even when observed face down.
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.
