What you want to beware, as mentioned before, is the fact that the diamonds that have increased in value so much are the top quality stones and not all diamonds. Go ahead and pay a bit more attention to how you present yourself in what you have instead of spending your last dime on clothes that will be out of fashion in a week. The ring comes with a $20,000 valuation certificate.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality The ideal cut diamond is a very precise mathematical equation, where diamond proportions and angles are cut to optimize the diamond's superlative optical properties, in particular it's high refractive index and color dispersion, to create a diamond of unequaled beauty with perfect balance of brilliance and fire. In layman's terms, the diamond is cut to make it the most beautiful diamond so it retains its intrinsic value.
Color Slight presence of color may be detected in F color graded diamonds by an expert gemologist. The diamonds of this grade are considered colorless. Great choice for the purist. Look for a fluorescence rating of faint, inert, none, or negligible.
Clarity I1 clarity diamonds are included. I1 diamonds exhibit inclusions that are obvious at 10x magnification, and visible to the unaided eye. In small brilliant-cut diamonds, however, the inclusions are barely visible to the unaided eye because of the size of the diamond. This diamond is a good choice for people on a very limited budget.
