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 H color diamonds are near colorless. H color may be somewhat noticeable when compared to diamonds of better grades, but this grade offers excellent value. Its very faint tint will only be noticeable to a trained gemologist. Such diamonds look beautiful in platinum and white gold and offer outstanding value.
Clarity Diamonds of I1 clarity are included. Typically inclusions in I1 diamonds can be seen with the naked eye through the crown side of the diamond. Although visible usually such inclusions only slightly affect the brilliancy of the diamond. I1 clarity diamonds may be a good choice for budget conscious customers.
