The price has risen steadily over the years as a diamond cartel led by DeBeers company has monopolized the diamond market. Different alloys and different percentages produce better results for different jewelry purposes. While platinum is best known for its use in jewelry, more than 60% of platinum is used for other industrial purposes such as catalytic converters in autos and pacemakers in the medical field.
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 Diamonds of F color are very close to colorless. Very small percentage of natural diamonds fall into this category. Even a trained professional will not be able to detect presence of color without instrumentation.
Clarity Diamonds of VVS2 clarity are very, very slightly included grade two. In diamonds of VVS2 clarity the inclusions are still considered minute but perhaps a few more pinpoints than are in VVS1 grade stones. Any VVS clarity be it a VVS1 or VVS2 are immaculate under the microscope. VVS2 clarity diamonds appear unblemished to the naked eye.
