The ultimate symbol of love and eternity, diamonds formed thousands of years ago in the Earth's mantle under extreme heat and pressure. It's under these conditions that they gain their molecular properties. In diamond mines across the world 200 tons of rock and earth are moved to find every carat of diamond.
Diamonds contain natural inclusions or blemishes, and are measured for their clarity using the following grades: FL, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, I1, I2 and I3.
The cut is one of the most influencing factors in a diamonds brightness. Cut refers to how well the diamond facets interact with light and are measured by the following grades: Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair and Poor. A well cut diamond will unleash the fire and scintillation inside. These images illustrate the differences between Ideal, Deep and Shallow cut diamonds. An ideal cut diamond maximizes the amount of light you see through refraction. It takes a skilled and experienced artisan to cut a rough diamond into the diamonds used in jewelry.
Colour is graded by the following grades D, E, F, G, H, I and J.
Carat refers to the overall size of the diamond. In this case, bigger is not always better. Rough diamonds are studied by a diamond cutter for days to determine the best way to cut the diamond in order to maximize the carat weight and quality of the diamond.
