Ocular measuring devices generate a three-dimensional model, to measure the diamond’s proportion and angles. This is how a diamond’s cut grade is measured. However, the interfusion between these various dimensions will significantly have an effect on how light reacts once it enters the diamond and how it behaves on its way out. By using delicate and advanced computer modeling, it is likely to draw light behavior and measure its level of brilliance, fire and sparkle as it exits the top of the diamond.
Exceptional and finest cut grade stricture has only been applied to round brilliant stones by the GIA and AGS, at present.
Polish depicts the smoothness of a diamond’s surface while symmetry refers to the alignment/ position of the surface. Cut grade of a diamond is far more essential than the polish and symmetry, as they value nothing. They are only helpful when picking between two diamonds that are otherwise the same.
The term fluorescence refers to those diamonds that create a visible reaction when exposed to ultraviolet rays. During tests conducted in laboratory with both qualified gemologists and people with no diamond knowledge and experience, no connection was found between fluorescence and the overall appearance of a diamond. Although, diamonds with particularly strong fluorescence have a higher value for the end customer because the market prices them a little lower than dim fluorescent diamonds.
Fancy color diamonds are an exceptional, natural incident of nature. On such occasions, while diamonds are being produced deep inside the earth, if exposed to certain trace elements, they result into a fancy color diamond. They are formed in almost any color of the rainbow- orange, blue, yellow, red, pink, green and violet. Such diamonds usually come with a Gemological Institute of America (GIA) report. It specifies the diamond’s natural origin and color grade hence certifying its value.
It’s recommended that for a three-stone ring, that you choose the cut grade is the same for each diamond. However, the color and clarity can vary. There will not be a noticeable difference within three grades of a color, such as D, E and F will each have the same look. For clarity, anything VS2 or above will appear similar.
The measure of the number and size of tiny defects and flaws present in almost all diamonds is termed as clarity. They do not affect a diamond’s exquisiteness and beauty in any evident way due to minute microscopic imperfections. Therefore, the brilliance and sparkle of a well-cut diamond compliment to conceal the imperfections of a lower clarity grade diamond. On the other hand, it is nearly impossible to have a situation where a diamond’s defects are great and visible that it spoils the sparkle and brilliance of a diamond.
The American Gem Society Laboratories (AGSL) and Gemological Institute of America (GIA) are considered to be the most prestigious labs in the diamond industry. Due to their reliability and traditional grading standards they are highly appreciated. The differences in terms of explaining the qualities of diamonds are trivial, and a certificate from either one of these laboratories guarantees that you have an authentic judgment of your diamond.
The International Gemological Institute (IGI) and the European Gemological Laboratory (EGL) are two other diamond grading laboratories. We do not take diamonds from these laboratories.
Yes, indeed we do. An assessment/appraisal comes with all diamond engagement rings, any set using our ‘Custom Made Design’ feature and other jewelry worth over $2,500.
