Diamond is forever
Someone rightly said “Diamond is Forever”, and so are the feelings associated with it. Hence, it is considered as the highest order for gifting. Someone eyeing at gifting a diamond to their dear ones has loads of options, starting from nose rings to Diamond Harams, from Diamond bangles to Diamond nakh nath, from Diamond necklace to Diamond earrings. The diamond necklace price in India largely varies according to with the number of carats, cut and clarity of the diamonds used in the Jewellery piece. For example a diamond necklace price with VVS1 grade diamonds would be far more costly than that of SI grade. In order to understand the price, one should have a brief of the 3Cs i.e. Colour, Cut and Clarity.
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. There is a universal D-to-Z Colour Grading Scale, with ‘D’ as colourless.
Evaluating diamond clarity involves determining the number, size, relief, nature, and position of these characteristics, as well as how these affect the overall appearance of the stone. While no diamond is perfectly pure, the closer it comes, the higher its value. No inclusions and no blemishes visible to a skilled grader using 10 x magnifications are considered Flawless.
A Diamond’s Cut Unleashes Its Light. Diamond’s cut is crucial to the stone’s final beauty and value. A round brilliant diamond cut is the standard cut which dominates the diamond Jewellery industry. On the other hand few of the famous cuts are Princess Cut, Marquise cut, Pear Shaped etc.
