Marquise diamonds frequently display a bow tie, so try to to find a stone in which this is minimal or absent. It was during the end of the 19th Century that Peter Carl Faberge, jeweler to the Russian Tsars, reintroduced an exacting craftsmanship into jewelry design. Figures of girls with dreamy expressions and swirling hair, dragonflies and peacocks with iridescent colors and stylized floral themes dominated jewelry.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds of premium cut are almost as good as ideal. While nature determines the color and clarity of a stone, diamond cut is dependent solely upon the skill of the cutter. Premium cut diamonds may be close to the ideal cut proportions and look just identical. Most people cannot distinguish between the two. However, there is a slight difference in quality and reduction in price over ideal cut diamonds.
Color Diamonds of H color are almost colorless. H color is the second best grade of in near colorless category. To see the presence of color one would place such diamonds against flat white background. Some presence of either yellow, brown or gray tint should be noticeable.
Clarity Diamonds of VVS2 clarity are very, very slightly included grade two. In diamonds of VVS2 clarity the inclusions are still considered minute but perhaps a few more pinpoints than are in VVS1 grade stones. Any VVS clarity be it a VVS1 or VVS2 are immaculate under the microscope. VVS2 clarity diamonds appear unblemished to the naked eye.
