Your choice of diamonds and setting is very important because ideally you won't get a second chance at choosing your diamond engagement ring. Castellani, among others throughout the history of Italian jewelry design, have infused passion into this craft of beauty, that in many regions of the country is almost an obsession. Gold has always been the most highly used metal in Italian designer jewelry; respecting the fact that the human body, mind and spirit has a strong, innate connection to gold, more than any other metal.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds of premium cut are almost as good as ideal. While nature determines the color and clarity of a stone, diamond cut is dependent solely upon the skill of the cutter. Premium cut diamonds may be close to the ideal cut proportions and look just identical. Most people cannot distinguish between the two. However, there is a slight difference in quality and reduction in price over ideal cut diamonds.
Color E color diamonds are virtually colorless. E color grade is very rare. The naked eye will not detect any presence of color. E color grade is indistinguishable from D without instrumentation.
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.
