Apparently there are in Russia alone 5 laboratories producing synthetic diamonds that have the same atomic structure as natural diamonds but with ONE difference, they are too perfect. Their goal is to find a pretty ring their girlfriend will like and have a few dollars left in their pocket. If you have a strong preference for the type of metal in the ring (yellow gold, white gold, platinum), find a way to tell him.
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 Diamonds of E color are virtually colorless. Only less than 0.7% of natural diamonds have this color. Diamonds of this color grade will appear colorless even when observed face down against a flat white background.
Clarity Inclusions and external blemishes in diamonds of SI1 clarity may be easy to spot under 10X power magnification. Location of the inclusions greatly affect their visibility to the naked eye. SI1 diamonds of good color produce as good of a sparkle as the more expansive VS graded stones of lower color. Excellent bargains may be fond in this category.
