As with all other jewelry, diamond jewelry needs to be cared for properly to ensure long lasting wear and enchantment. For instance, a pair silver pearl dangle earrings that has two cultural fresh water pearls with rhodium finish should cost double the price of the silver to make because of the cost of the pearl and rhodium. Shipping cost Many styles of jewelry are imported from other countries because of difference in availability of raw materials such as stones and also the specialties in making some particular styles.
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 F color diamonds are close to colorless. F color grade is rare and only surpassed by colors D and E. The naked eye will not detect any presence of color. For perfectionists, look for diamonds with low fluorescence.
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.
