Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality We determine the cut quality based on simplified formulas that take into account diamond's depth, table and proportions. If some of this information is not available we are unable to estimate the quality of the diamond's cut.
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 VS2 clarity have very small inclusions grade two. Inclusions VS2 diamonds are somewhat easy for a skilled grader to locate under 10x magnification. Diamonds that are graded VS in clarity are still very impressive looking diamonds under a microscope. Of course nothing is visible at all to the human eye. Such diamonds have a great balance between good clarity and exceptional price.
