Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Ideal cut refers to the angles and proportions of a diamond that satisfy very precise mathematical formulas. The result is that the the ideal cut diamond internally reflects most light from one mirror-like facet to another and disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. This results in a display of brilliance and fire, thereby placing ideal-cut diamonds higher on the quality pyramid than deep or shallow-cut diamonds.
Color Diamonds of G color are nearly colorless. G color diamonds may have a slight yellowish tint when viewed against white flat background. When set in platinum or white gold jewelry the presence of color will not be noticeable which makes diamonds in this color grade very popular.
Clarity VVS2 diamonds have very very small inclusions which, when viewed under 10X magnification by an expert, are difficult to be seen. The inclusions should be light colored. The features of the VVS2 clarity grade are exceptionally difficult to discern. Diamonds of this clarity appear to be perfect to an unaided eye.
