The lovers exchange diamond rings as the token of love. They were among the first to make bracelets with precious gemstones and enameling. However, jewelry eventually advanced from a simple ornamental or amulet stance to a symbol of rank, wealth and social standing.
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 H color grade diamonds are second best in a colorless category. Most H color diamonds have a very light yellow tint that may be more noticeable when the diamond is placed on a white surface. Such diamonds look beautiful in platinum and white gold and offer outstanding value.
Clarity VS1 clarity diamonds are very slightly included grade one. VS1 diamonds are less expensive than the VVS1 or VVS2 grades and present an excellent value. They have minor inclusions that are bigger and more noticeable than in higher clarity grades, but they are only visible at 10x magnification. To the naked eye, these diamonds will appear unblemished.
