Jewelers have come up with a system of 4 C's (Cut, Clarity, Color, and Carat) to help people understand the different aspects of diamond quality. There are also cases of copper and brass promise rings being exchanged just to seal the promise and not because of the price of the ring. Inexpensive promise rings are usually exchanged between two people who simply want to seal their promise, rather than show off the ring.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Cut quality is calculated based on simplified formulas that take into account diamond proportions, depth and table. If some of this information is not available we are unable to estimate the quality of the diamond's cut.
Color An E color diamond is extremely rare and slightly less expensive than a D but is so similar that most people won’t be able to tell the difference. You pay a serious premium for an E color diamond. Diamonds of this color grade will appear colorless even when observed face down.
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.
