Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality The ideal cut diamond is designed to reflect a maximum amount of light through the crown. When a diamond is ideally cut, light rays from all sides are bent towards the center of the stone and are reflected back through the top in a blaze of light. Such diamonds are perceived as most brilliant and fiery, thus making this the most desirable cut.
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 Typically VS2 diamonds have minuscule inclusions. Inclusions in VS2 clarity grade should be mainly light-colored and completely invisible to the naked eye. Very small dark inclusions are allowable under the girdle when view under 10x magnification. Diamonds in VS2 category are great choice for people looking to balance high clarity and affordable price.
