Diamond Knowledge

Diamonds are the strongest gemstone of all natural components. It is something luxurious and glistening. At its real position, diamond is neutral. Diamonds are not just neutral, but other colors are very unusual, worthy and unique. However, neutral diamonds are the most popular and common.

For explicit events like engagements, matrimonies, and celebrations, diamonds are used to represent the commitment to enduring love. Today as throughout the centuries, the attitude of offering a diamond ring as a symbol of love still continues to imply the pureness, strength, and timelessness of one's love from the heart.

The 4C's

According to the universal criterion, there are 4 C's which defines the diamond's worth; Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight. Though, at Diamond Elite we provide you with an additional 1 C's which is Certificate (genuine gemological report). It is assumed important when purchasing a diamond.

Shape

Diamonds are accessible in a combination of shapes. Globally, the most well-known of the diamond shapes are the round brilliant. The definite structure of this diamond maximizes the revenue and show of light that makes the sparkle of a diamond what it is. This preference for the round splendid cut is served closely by the square or princess cut diamond. The scintillating charm and the movement of light through these beautifully and exquisitely cut diamonds is the basis for their large and continued demand. For those who favor a larger angular diamond, the emerald cut is excellent. The rectangular step-cut that is the criterion of this pleasant diamond provides its unmatched shine. Always, our ability to meet your diamond needs means that any diamond design will be available for your consideration.

Color

A diamond’s color is met against a series of master stones. While most diamonds are transparent to somewhat yellowish, the most sought-after diamonds are in the transparent or near-colorless range. A “D” graded diamond is at the top of this dealing range. Multiple and various brilliant diamonds are found from this letter grade by letter “H” on a scale that goes to the construction type diamonds the furthest down the scale in the “Z” range.

Diamond color befalls naturally in an unusual collection of shades from the champagnes or lights brown to hitting yellow, pink, purple. Blue and red.

These colors are known as “fancy” and usually are obtainable in particular order.

Some diamonds include fluorescence which acknowledgment in “black light.” This fluorescence can range from zero to strong. This kind of a diamond is also measured and graded.

Clarity

The unity of a diamond suggests to how free of real features a diamond is. In gem-quality diamonds, the sometimes minute inside and outside features will examine the clarity of the diamond. Most diamonds will have some degree of common formations. The scale used to measure these features takes into account the size, number, and arrangement of the formations. The clearer a diamond is to the naked eye and more under the scrutiny of a loop, the more expensive the diamond.

Cut

The brilliance and sparkle of a diamond are often examined by the cut of the diamond. The proportions that conclude the best scintillation change with each diamond shape. Polish leads mainly to the symmetry of the cut. The cut of the diamond is the main reason a diamond sparkles the way it does. That sparkle and shine of enlightenment are what it is because of the action of light within the different aspects that are found within the diamond.

The “ideal” dimensions (depth and width) of diamonds changes with the various shape of the diamonds.

Hearts and Arrow

This is the ordinarily preferred cut. Its exact details are usually undetectable to an untrained eye.

Our severe craftsmanship designs the pattern of a group of eight arrowheads in the diamond with the use of an H&A's scope. If the diamond is rotated upside-down, you will see a classic pattern of eight heart shapes. These exceptional features are one of the few easiest ways to examine a diamond.

Carat

A carat is a judgment in points that defines the weight of a diamond. 100 points equal a one-carat diamond. A carat weight of a unique diamond is usually shown as Ct. the carat weight of more than one diamond (as in a tennis bracelet) is usually recorded as carat total weight recorded as ctw. or cttw.

Certificate

What is a Certified Diamond?

We present diamonds certified by each of two top diamond grading companies, The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or European Gemological Laboratory (EGL). Diamond certification guarantees that the diamond you are considering has been appraised by an outside entity. Certification is usually advised when assuring the larger center or main diamond of your ring, earrings, pendant or bracelet.

Diamond certification highlights the different characteristics of a given diamond. Certification diagrams the dimensions of the cut of the diamond, the color, clarity, and carat weight of it as well. It also includes additional grading information in terms of the finish (polish and symmetry) of the diamond and whether the diamond is laser marked. It defines the dimensions of the diamond, its shape and cutting style and whether the diamond has excellent additional information unique to it.

Certified diamonds are indicated a registry number by the certifying lab that is uncommon to the singular diamond. This number looks on the report and can be laser engraved on the diamond as well. Not all certified diamonds are laser engraved.

How is an Appraisal different from Diamond Certification?

We advise our customers a written evaluation for any Diamond or Gemstone purchase. This evaluation unlike the Diamond Certification which is only about a unique diamond takes into account the complete piece of jewelry. An evaluation lists supplementary gems or diamonds that make up the piece as well as how the piece is sketched and in what type of metal. An evaluation indicates a financial value to the jewelry. This evaluation is suggested when the jewelry is to be protected. An evaluation is often expected in addition to the certification for purposes of replacement cost. Evaluations should be updated every three years to explain the increasing value of the diamonds and/or gems. Evaluations are often conducted by a photo of the jewelry.
