Ask anyone what the most important characterstic of their diamond is and they're likely to say it's the "Wow" factor. You want your friends and family to stop, stare and admire the stone dancing on your fingeer. A beautifully cut diamond is dazzling, every facet displays the craftsman's skill and care. When it interacts with light, each facet angle affects the amount of light returned to the eye. This is what gives a diamond its face-up appearance and what makes it appealing - or not.
|EXCELLENT||Excellent Cut Diamonds provide the highest level of fire and brilliance. Beacause almost all of the incoming light is reflected through the table, the diamond radiates with magnificent sparkle.|
|Very Good||Very Good Cut Diamonds offer exceptional brilliance and fire. A large majority of the entering light reflects through the diamond's table. To the naked eye, Very Good Diamonds provide similar sparkle to those of Excellent grade.|
|Good||Good Cut Diamonds showcase brilliance and sparkle, with much of the light reflecting through the table to the viewer's eye. These diamonds provide beauty at a lower price point.|
|Fair||Fair Cut Diamonds offer little brilliance, as light easily exists through the bottom and sides of the diamond. Diamonds of Fair Cut may be a satisfactory choice for smaller carats and those acting as side stones.|
|Poor||Poor Cut Diamonds yield nearly no sparkle, brilliance or fire. Entering light escapes from the sides and bottom of the diamond.|
Evaluating diamond clarity involves determining the number, size, relief, nature and position of these characterstics, as well as how these affect the overall appearance of the stone. Many inclusions and blemishes are too tiny to be seen by anyone other than a trained diamond grader. To the naked eye, a VS1 and SI2 diamond may look exactly the same, but these diamonds are quite different in terms of overall quality.
|FL & IF||The diamond shows no inclusions when examined under 10x magnification and has the best diamond clarity rating.|
|VVS1 & VVS2||"Very, Very Slightly Included" - The diamond contains microscopic inclusions that are very difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification. These inclusions are never visible to the naked eye.|
|VS1 & VS2||"Very Slightly Included" - The diamond contains minor inclusions that are visible to a skilled grader under 10x magnification. These inclusions are not visible to naked eye.|
|SI1 & SI2||"Slightly Included" - The diamond contains inclusions that are easily visible under 10x magnification. The inclusions in SI1 diamonds are often not visible to naked eye. The inclusions in SI2 are sometimes not visible to the naked eye.|
|I1, I2 & I3||The diamond contains inclusions that are obvious under 10x magnification and easily visible to naked eye.|
Interestingly, the diamond color evaluation of most gem-quality diamonds is based on the absence of color. A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond has no hue, like a drop of pure water, and consequently, a higher value. The D-to-Z diamond color-grading system measures the degree of colorlessness by comparing a stone under controlled lighting and precise viewing conditions to masterstones of established color value.
|COLORLESS||NEAR COLORLESS||FAINT YELLOW||VERY LIGHT YELLOW||LIGHT YELLOW|
Often a diamond with a higher color grade will appear whiter, clearer and crisper to the naked eye. As the color scale gets deeper into the alphabet, the yellowness of a diamond becomes more visible. A diamond color classification scale with five categories helps determine where in the range the color falls. D, E, and F are in the colorless range. G, H, I and J are called near colorless. The rest of the spectrum falls under faint yellow, very light yellow and light yellow, until Z is reached.
