It might be cheaper to buy an uncertified diamond or one certified by a "no name" lab but you may not get what you think you are getting. Diamond bracelets are not cheap, so give such a gift to someone you re close and committed to. After all the time I spent buying, planning, and putting on my new outfit, my sparkly chandelier earrings were the only thing that survived the morning.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds of premium cut are almost as good as ideal. While nature determines the color and clarity of a stone, diamond cut is dependent solely upon the skill of the cutter. 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 G color diamonds are next to colorless. G color may be somewhat slightly noticeable when compared to diamonds of better grades, but this grade offers excellent value. G-color diamonds are the most rare of the near-colorless diamonds. Its extremely faint tint will only be noticeable to a trained gemologist.
Clarity Diamonds of VVS1 clarity are very slightly included grade one. VVS1 diamonds with minute inclusions absolutely invisible to the naked eye. Only through careful inspection with a microscope can these tiny inclusions be accurately pinpointed. The brilliance of the stone does not suffer in this category.
