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 In the near colorless category H color grade is the second best. Most H color diamonds have a very light yellow or gray tint that may be more noticeable when the diamond is placed on a white surface. Diamonds with H color grade appear white and are great values because they are more plentiful and as a result less expensive.
Clarity SI3 clarity diamonds are slightly included grade three. SI3 diamonds have inclusions easily visible under 10x magnification. Such inclusions may be noticeable to the naked eye depending on their location on the diamonds, especially when diamonds are observed “upside down”.
