Yellow, blue, and green diamonds are often the result of such treatment. If you want an emerald green gem, for example, and cannot afford emerald itself, you would use the guide to see what other similarly colored emerald green gems are available; tsavorite garnet, chrome tourmaline, or green tourmaline, green sapphire. In comparing prices for these green gems, you would immediately see that tsavorite garnet is the most expensive (but still much more affordable than emerald), chrome tourmaline is next in cost, then green tourmaline, and finally, the most affordable, green sapphire.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality The ideal cut diamond is a very precise mathematical equation, where diamond proportions and angles are cut to optimize the diamond's superlative optical properties, in particular it's high refractive index and color dispersion, to create a diamond of unequaled beauty with perfect balance of brilliance and fire. In layman's terms, the diamond is cut to make it the most beautiful diamond so it retains its intrinsic value.
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 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.
