The Great Chrysanthemum was discovered in the summer of 1963, in a South African diamond field. Because they are so rare, flawless rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and so on should always be viewed with suspicion; have their genuineness verified by a gem testing lab. For our ancestors, the blue of sapphire produced visions of the heavens; and red of ruby was a reminder of the very essence of life.
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 VVS2 clarity diamonds are very, very slightly included grade two. diamonds of VVS2 clarity have very small inclusions that are difficult to see even under 10x magnification. Though the inclusions are not quite as imperceptible as in a VVS1-clarity diamond, this diamond still makes an excellent choice for those looking for a balance of exquisite clarity and affordable price.
