DIAMOND CUT


A Diamond’s Cut Unleashes Its Light

Diamonds are renowned for their ability to transmit light and sparkle so intensely. We often think of a diamond’s cut as shape (round, heart, oval, marquise, pear), but a diamond’s cut grade is really about how well a diamond’s facets interact with light.

DIAMOND COLOR


Diamond Color Actually Means Lack of Color

Z

The diamond color evaluation of most gem-quality diamonds is based on the absence of color.
A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond has no hue, like a drop of pure water, and consequently, a higher value.
GIA’s D-to-Z diamond color-grading system measures the degree of colorlessness by comparing a stone under controlled lighting and precise viewing conditions to masterstones of established color value.

DIAMOND CLARITY


Diamond Clarity Refers to the Absence of Inclusions and Blemishes

Natural diamonds are the result of carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep in the earth.
This process can result in a variety of internal characteristics called “inclusions” and external characteristics called “blemishes”.
