Before assuming that the farther along the scale you go less valuable the diamond is, think again. If the pendant plays peekaboo in the neckline, then shorten the chain. Or put that pendant in either a shorter chain, so it sits confidently above your neckline, or go for a much longer necklace that would contrast beautifully against the fabric of your outfit.
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 To most people G color diamonds will look absolutely colorless unless the diamonds of better color grade are used as a reference. Diamonds of G color grade offer an excellent trade off between diamond quality and affordability. GIA certified G color diamonds look exceptionally beautiful in platinum settings and make an excellent investment.
Clarity Typically VS2 diamonds have minuscule inclusions. Inclusions in VS2 clarity grade should be mainly light-colored and completely invisible to the naked eye. Very small dark inclusions are allowable under the girdle when view under 10x magnification. Diamonds in VS2 category are great choice for people looking to balance high clarity and affordable price.
