Select the following color, clarity and cut and learn why these are the ones recommended by diamond experts.
- Color: select "G,H" in the filter
Diamond color grades start with the letter D. The closer to D, the whiter the stone, and the more expensive it is!
No need to go for the top of the scale. Diamonds until color grade "H" are fully adequate! To the naked eye, there is absolutely no yellow tint recognizable in such stones, while also being significantly cheaper than D color diamonds!
- Clarity: select "VS" in the filter
The clarity determines how pure a diamond actually looks. The more "stains" appear on a diamond, the lower the clarity grade.
Once more, no need to go for the absolute best.
"VS" (VS1 and VS2) diamonds are "very slightly included", meaning that their tiny flaws are invisible to the naked eye while being significantly cheaper than flawless diamonds.
Note: "VS1" is slightly better than "VS2" but the difference between those two cut grades is only recognizable under a 10x magnification loupe. Simply remember that any "VS" graded diamond will do.
- Cut: open the GIA certificate
We offer many different cut grades for a range of budgets.
To double-check the cut grade of the diamond you are interested in, open the stone´s GIA certificate.
Make sure that it has an "excellent", "very good" or "good" cut grade. We recommend staying away from "fair" or "poor" graded diamonds, or the sparkle would be impacted.
