All of our Diamonds under ½ carat are graded by the cutter and verified by our in-house geologist. For less than ½ carat diamond we use G-H-I, color (white) and SI clarity (clean to the naked eye). All Diamonds are over ½ carat are independently graded.
The colorless grade is the most valuable. We recommend Diamonds that will appear white when mounted in jewelry.
To determine a Diamonds clarity grading, it must be examined under a 10x magnification by a trained skill eye. Minute inclusions make every Diamond unique.
Diamonds are sold by weight. The unit of weight is carat, while carat weight is important the millimeter size of a gemstone tells you exactly what size Diamonds will fit in a particular mounting.
