Have you visited the mines and cutting facilities that produce your diamonds. Custom designs are highly prized as more of the jewelry manufacturing is done by machine. Instead of pure gold which is not always durable, chains and other jewelry are often made of tougher materials and plated with gold.
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 J is the last letter that constitutes the near colorless range. Presence of yellow or brown tint may be noticeable to a non-professional. When mounted in yellow gold setting, such diamonds will appear colorless to the most people. J color diamond is a good buy for budget conscious.
Clarity Diamonds of VS1 clarity are very slightly included grade one. VS1 diamonds with tiny inclusions that are difficult to locate. Only a trained eye looking through a 10X loupe can pinpoint the inclusions in this category. The inclusions are nearly impossible to see with the naked eye. Excellent buy by all means.
