Imitation diamonds are purposely crafted to look like real diamonds from a birds-eye-view, but are less commonly apt to carry those same characteristics throughout the rest of the stone. Think about it; this ring will always represent the beginning of your lives together, and you want it to reflect the importance of that. With that being said, make sure you first save enough money to buy a proper ring.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality Diamonds of premium cut are almost as good as ideal. While nature determines the color and clarity of a stone, diamond cut is dependent solely upon the skill of the cutter. Premium cut diamonds may be close to the ideal cut proportions and look just identical. Most people cannot distinguish between the two. However, there is a slight difference in quality and reduction in price over ideal cut diamonds.
Color Slight presence of color may be detected in F color graded diamonds by an expert gemologist. The diamonds of this grade are considered colorless. Great choice for the purist. Look for a fluorescence rating of faint, inert, none, or negligible.
Clarity SI2 clarity diamonds are slightly included grade two. SI2 inclusions in diamonds are easily visible under 10x magnification. These inclusions may or may not be discernable to the naked eye depending on their location on the diamond, but these diamonds still presents an excellent value.
