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 F color diamonds are close to colorless. F color grade is rare and only surpassed by colors D and E. The naked eye will not detect any presence of color. For perfectionists, look for diamonds with low fluorescence.
Clarity Diamonds of VS1 clarity are very slightly included grade one. VS1 diamonds with tiny inclusions that are difficult to locate. Only a trained eye looking through a 10X loupe can pinpoint the inclusions in this category. The inclusions are nearly impossible to see with the naked eye. Excellent buy by all means.
