In this post we will delve into detail on the various aspects of this special value diamond
The Color: At D color it simply cannot get any better than this! D is at the top of the Colorless range resulting in a perfectly white diamond. Oval diamonds specifically tend to show color saturation a lot easier than other diamond shapes. Check out this video showing the color changes from D, H, and I color oval diamonds. Because ovals tend to show color very easily we recommend in most cases stearing clear of the J color range for this shape. Otherwise, the tint of yellow closer to the J color range can become too apparent. While we won't say D color is an absolutely necessity, there is no engagement ring denying the bright white appearance and the sheer rarity of a D color is extremely appealing and gives a very crisp clear appearance to this special diamond.
The Clarity: The Slightly Included clarity range is a tricky range because many of the diamonds will not be eye clean. However we sieve through to select the best SI clarity diamond options for our clients to maximize the beautiful face up look. Notice there are not an overwhelming amount of clouds or feathers which could result in a hazy look in the diamond. An SI1 clarity diamond with with well hidden imperfections is considered flawless to the naked eye meaning you can only view inclusions on close inspection/magnification.
The Shape: The shape of an oval diamond is one of the most important characteristics and unfortunately not a listed characteristic on the GIA report of the diamond. We love the rounded symmettrical look to this oval featuring perfectly curved edges that oval diamonds are famous for. Oval's can be cut in a variety of ways. A poorly cut oval might have a bulging mid-section like a marquise cut diamond resulting in a football shape diamond. Other ovals might have a more squarish appearance detracting from the soft graceful look the oval is so well known for. Since this is an unlisted characteristic this is where a video comes in and allows you to see the nuances and outline of each diamond.
