After all, even someone looking for the first time at a diamond can often see flaws (which affect clarity), the color, and the relative size of a stone. In ancient times, jewelry may have been simple pieces made from natural materials such as shells plucked from the seashore or pebbles worn smooth and polished by years of being tumbled along the sea or river bed. These would have been strung together perhaps as necklaces or wrist pieces as early examples of a charm bracelet.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality The ideal cut diamond is a very precise mathematical equation, where diamond proportions and angles are cut to optimize the diamond's superlative optical properties, in particular it's high refractive index and color dispersion, to create a diamond of unequaled beauty with perfect balance of brilliance and fire. In layman's terms, the diamond is cut to make it the most beautiful diamond so it retains its intrinsic value.
Color When mounted, G color grade diamonds will appear colorless except to the trained eye. G color may be noticeable when compared to diamonds of better grades. Diamonds of G color grade offer excellent value. For an excellent value in a diamond with no noticeable color to the unaided eye, G color diamond is the right choice.
Clarity IF clarity diamonds are internally flawless. diamonds of IF clarity exhibit no inclusions and may have insignificant blemishes that are extraordinarily difficult to see even under high magnification. Diamonds of this grade of clarity are extremely rare and expansive.
