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 the diamonds making it less expansive. One needs to keep in mind that appearance of a diamond is very subjective and cannot be fully evaluated just by their proportions along.
Color F color diamonds are close to colorless. F color grade is rare and only surpassed by colors D and E. The naked eye will not detect any presence of color. For perfectionists, look for diamonds with low fluorescence.
Clarity VS2 Clarity diamonds are very slightly included grade two. VS2 diamonds have minor inclusions that are visible at 10x magnification. They are less expensive than the VS1 clarity grade because they exhibit slightly more inclusions. VS2 clarity diamonds make excellent choices for jewelry because the naked eye will not be able to detect any inclusions.
