Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds cut to ideal proportions are made to reflect the most amount of light. High percentage of diamond weight is lost in the process of shaping and polishing the diamond. Such diamonds are perceived as most brilliant and fiery, thus making this the most desirable cut. Because in making ideally cut diamonds more diamond material is sacrificed for the sake of appearance, they are usually more expansive.
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 The stones of SI2 clarity have inclusions which are fairly easy to see under a loupe with 10X power magnification. Such inclusions may be visible to an unaided eye depending on their location. SI2 clarity diamonds of G or H color look nearly perfect when mounted. For those looking for near perfection these sure come close.
