Certification of diamonds Most diamonds weighting one carat or more are carefully evaluated prior to being set by a respected laboratory such as the GIA or the AGL, and are issued a diamond grading report. Many people have a hobby of making jewelry and this is a good hobby because you can sell what you have made for quite a bit of money. There are many people who are willing to spend twice or three times as much as the precious stones that you put into your jewelry.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Good cut diamonds reflects most light that enters the diamond, but not as must as a premium cuts. They are less expensive than the premium-cut. Roughly 25% of diamonds are good-cut based on cut quality. This grade represents an excellent balance between quality and price.
Color In the near colorless category H color grade is the second best. Most H color diamonds have a very light yellow or gray tint that may be more noticeable when the diamond is placed on a white surface. Diamonds with H color grade appear white and are great values because they are more plentiful and as a result less expensive.
Clarity SI1 clarity diamonds are slightly included. SI1 diamonds have some inclusions visible under 10x magnification but not easily visible to the naked eye. A diamond with this grade of clarity is an excellent choice for someone on a limited budget.
