Finding diamonds and getting them out of the ground may require the use of jet engines to thaw the frozen ground or to endure the sweltering desert heat. Following the vintage rage set by fashion houses, antique engagement rings are making a striking comeback. Women are now looking for rings that have a bit of nostalgia found in the gold filigree settings and mod designs.
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 Diamonds of E color are virtually colorless. Only less than 0.7% of natural diamonds have this color. Diamonds of this color grade will appear colorless even when observed face down against a flat white background.
Clarity I1 clarity diamonds are included. I1 diamonds exhibit inclusions that are obvious at 10x magnification, and visible to the unaided eye. In small brilliant-cut diamonds, however, the inclusions are barely visible to the unaided eye because of the size of the diamond. This diamond is a good choice for people on a very limited budget.
