In the diamond business the cut of a diamond does not relate to its shape at all. Gold jewelry might cause allergic reactions in people in part because it is mixed with other substances such as nickel, which can be irritating for some people. Platinum and titanium jewelry usually will hold up well over time and require little maintenance, other than regular cleanings using a mild soap or cleaning agent.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds cut to ideal proportions are made to reflect the most amount of light. High percentage of diamond weight is lost in the process of shaping and polishing the diamond. Such diamonds are perceived as most brilliant and fiery, thus making this the most desirable cut. Because in making ideally cut diamonds more diamond material is sacrificed for the sake of appearance, they are usually more expansive.
Color Diamonds of F color are very close to colorless. Very small percentage of natural diamonds fall into this category. Even a trained professional will not be able to detect presence of color without instrumentation.
Clarity SI1 clarity diamonds are slightly included. SI1 diamonds have some inclusions visible under 10x magnification but not easily visible to the naked eye. A diamond with this grade of clarity is an excellent choice for someone on a limited budget.
