If you love the look of the Emerald Shape diamond, but feel that it is just too lackluster, then you will fall in love with the Radiant Shape diamond. This number is not a far cry from the suit Elizabeth Hurley wore in one of her plenty beach escapades, except for the metal side rings that held the bottom and the subtle metal ring at the center of the bikini top. This would just be perfect for any beach wedding, pool party, or a *special backyard BBQ* this season.
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 Diamonds of G color are nearly colorless. G color diamonds may have a slight yellowish tint when viewed against white flat background. When set in platinum or white gold jewelry the presence of color will not be noticeable which makes diamonds in this color grade very popular.
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.
