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 H color diamonds are near colorless. H color may be somewhat noticeable when compared to diamonds of better grades, but this grade offers excellent value. Its very faint tint will only be noticeable to a trained gemologist. Such diamonds look beautiful in platinum and white gold and offer outstanding value.
Clarity SI3 clarity diamonds are slightly included grade three. SI3 diamonds have inclusions easily visible under 10x magnification. Such inclusions may be noticeable to the naked eye depending on their location on the diamonds, especially when diamonds are observed “upside down”.
