from soft leather necklaces embellished with beads to titanium bracelets to diamond stud earrings. Suddenly a piece of jewelry that you thought was newer or made of silver plate or gold plate now may be seen in a different light as genuine antique silver or gold and have a lot of value. Does the jewelry have a brass spring ring clasp from the 1930s or a shiny gold plate clasp.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds cut to ideal proportions are made to reflect the most amount of light. 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. Ideal cut diamonds have most intense brilliance of all diamond cuts.
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 The stones of SI2 clarity have inclusions which are fairly easy to see under a loupe with 10X power magnification. Such inclusions may be visible to an unaided eye depending on their location. SI2 clarity diamonds of G or H color look nearly perfect when mounted. For those looking for near perfection these sure come close.
