In diamonds, go for color and sparkle first If you have a limited budget, you have to compromise on something; either the size, color, clarity (flaw grade), or liveliness. Pearl jewelry has fascinated women, from queens to ordinary folks, for centuries, and is very much sought after. Queens and princesses have very eloquently displayed pearl jewelry along with their lavishly styled dresses.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Ideal cut refers to the angles and proportions of a diamond that satisfy very precise mathematical formulas. The result is that the the ideal cut diamond internally reflects most light from one mirror-like facet to another and disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. 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.
Color Trained people can see yellow in a J color diamond pretty easily. You can also do this by placing the diamonds upside down on a white piece of paper and looking at them from the side. J-color diamonds offer an excellent trade off for price and quality - excellent choice for the budget conscious.
Clarity VS1 clarity diamonds are very slightly included grade one. VS1 diamonds are less expensive than the VVS1 or VVS2 grades and present an excellent value. They have minor inclusions that are bigger and more noticeable than in higher clarity grades, but they are only visible at 10x magnification. To the naked eye, these diamonds will appear unblemished.
