Whatever you decide to buy and for whatever the reason that you decide to buy it, a diamond can represent one of life's deepest emotional investments. Before being blinded by a ring's gold sheen ask if that ring is made from solid gold. The finished rings are then given a thin gold plating.
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 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 SI1 clarity are slightly included grade one. Inclusions in SI1 diamonds are easily identified through a strong loupe. Finding flaws in this category with the naked eye is difficult. The diamonds in this category maintain their integrity, depending on the location of the inclusions.
