Newer technologies now make it possible to color grade a diamond while mounted, but these instruments are very expensive and not widespread. Your skin is still your most important and valuable piece of jewelry and you should treat it accordingly. Gold plated and gold-filled jewelry is great for fashion jewelry that will not be subject to heavy usage.
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 D color are absolutely colorless. It is the top most color grade and only 0.3% of all diamonds that make it out of the earth being D color.
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.
