The popularity of diamonds as a wearable gemstone increased in the 19th century as cutting and polishing practices improved. Some people choose to have matching stones put around the entire ring, while some have several multi-colored stones or a single stone setting. Engraving, etchings, and inlays of different metals or different colored titanium are also easy to do in the hard titanium and they will not wear down like on some gold rings.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality The ideal cut diamond is designed to reflect a maximum amount of light through the crown. When a diamond is ideally cut, light rays from all sides are bent towards the center of the stone and are reflected back through the top in a blaze of light. Such diamonds are perceived as most brilliant and fiery, thus making this the most desirable cut.
