You should by now already have some sense of the Diamond Grading System and the 4C s-Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat. If your fashion find doesn't have pins, big buttons and the like, try out vintage items, medals, fashion jewelry, and other second-hand items. Some women continually keep up with the ever-changing trends in fashion.
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. This results in a display of brilliance and fire, thereby placing ideal-cut diamonds higher on the quality pyramid than deep or shallow-cut diamonds. Ideal cut diamonds have most intense brilliance of all diamond cuts.
Color H color grade diamonds are second best in a colorless category. Most H color diamonds have a very light yellow tint that may be more noticeable when the diamond is placed on a white surface. Such diamonds look beautiful in platinum and white gold and offer outstanding value.
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.
