Prospective buyers had to pay $2,500 each to view the diamond to cover the costs of showing it. By Roman times, rings containing colored gems were prized symbols of power, and the most powerful wore rings on every joint of every finger. While we may own a birthstone that we wear on occasion, our choice of gemstones is usually dictated by personal color preferences, economics, and fashion.

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 D color diamonds are absolutely colorless. D is the highest color grade. Natural diamonds of this color grade are extremely rare and expensive.
Clarity VS2 Clarity diamonds are very slightly included grade two. VS2 diamonds have minor inclusions that are visible at 10x magnification. They are less expensive than the VS1 clarity grade because they exhibit slightly more inclusions. VS2 clarity diamonds make excellent choices for jewelry because the naked eye will not be able to detect any inclusions.
