Both cubic zirconia and moissanite have a close visual resemblance to diamonds they offer the luster and fire of diamonds while being mostly colorless and can be cut in the same shapes as diamonds. When pairing a piece of jewelry with a wardrobe item, a number of details need to be considered. Copper bracelets and necklaces look great with warm turquoise blues or greens, while colorful polymer clay pieces can be coordinated with colors picked up from a multi-hued dress or separates.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Ideal cut refers to the angles and proportions of a diamond that satisfy very precise mathematical formulas. The result is that the the ideal cut diamond internally reflects most light from one mirror-like facet to another and disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. This results in a display of brilliance and fire, thereby placing ideal-cut diamonds higher on the quality pyramid than deep or shallow-cut diamonds.
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 VS1 diamonds have very small inclusions. Usually an experienced grader does not find any internal faults, but does not have great difficulties to see the inclusions when he moves the diamond a little from side to side. Typical inclusions of this group are small, light clouds or small light cracks on the girdle.
