Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond

Premium cut diamonds may be close to the ideal cut proportions and look just identical. Most people cannot distinguish between the two. However, there is a slight difference in quality and reduction in price over ideal cut diamonds.
Color D color diamonds are absolutely colorless. D is the highest color grade. Natural diamonds of this color grade are extremely rare and expensive.

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.
