Remember, a diamond grading certificate from a leading gemological laboratory will insure you get the quality you paid for. There are many designs for you to choose from; rings, chokers, hair clips, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, bangles and earrings. There are many quality manufactures of high-end or 'fine' fashion jewelry that produce lines of 'costume' jewelry that are much more affordable but look expensive.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Ideal cut refers to the angles and proportions of a diamond that satisfy very precise mathematical formulas. The result is that the the ideal cut diamond internally reflects most light from one mirror-like facet to another and disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. This results in a display of brilliance and fire, thereby placing ideal-cut diamonds higher on the quality pyramid than deep or shallow-cut diamonds.
Color I color diamonds are almost colorless. I color will be slightly detectable to the experienced eye. When cut to ideal proportions, the diamond will produce a warm intensity. I color diamonds are excellent value for the budget conscious and allow to save money or get a bigger diamond or a better cut.
Clarity VS1 clarity diamonds are very slightly included grade one. VS1 diamonds are less expensive than the VVS1 or VVS2 grades and present an excellent value. They have minor inclusions that are bigger and more noticeable than in higher clarity grades, but they are only visible at 10x magnification. To the naked eye, these diamonds will appear unblemished.
