Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamond with ideal cut proportions are optimized to return back almost 100% of incoming light. Significant carat weight may be lost in the process of cutting to ideal proportions. This is a very rare cut, that reflects nearly all light that enters the diamond and creates the maximum fire and brilliance. Ideal cut diamonds have most intense brilliance of all diamond cuts.
Color To most people G color diamonds will look absolutely colorless unless the diamonds of better color grade are used as a reference. Diamonds of G color grade offer an excellent trade off between diamond quality and affordability. GIA certified G color diamonds look exceptionally beautiful in platinum settings and make an excellent investment.
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.
