JEWELRY - Diamond Jewelry
 
A diamond is a transparent crystal of tetrahedrally bonded carbon atoms and is the hardest natural material known.Natural diamonds are formed at high-pressure high-temperature conditions existing at depths of 140 to 190 kilometers in the Earth mantle over periods from 1 billion to 3.3 billion years. Diamonds are brought close to the Earth surface through deep volcanic eruptions by a magma, which cools into igneous rocks.

Diamonds can also be produced synthetically in a high-pressure high-temperature process which approximately simulates the conditions in the Earth mantle. Special gemological techniques have been developed to distinguish natural and synthetic diamonds.

The mined rough diamonds are converted into gems through a multi-step process called "cutting". Diamond cutting is a delicate procedure requiring skills, scientific knowledge, tools and experience. Its final goal is to produce a faceted jewel where the specific angles between the facets would optimize the diamond luster.

 
 
Diamond Clarity refers to the tiny, natural imperfections that occur in all diamonds. Gemologists refer to these imperfections by a variety of technical names, including blemishes and inclusions, among others. Diamonds with the least and smallest imperfections receive the highest clarity grades. The number, size, color, relative location, orientation, and visibility of inclusions can all affect the relative clarity of a diamond.
 
Using a magnification of 10X, diamonds are ranked with the following grades.
  • Flawless (FL) Diamonds
  • Internally Flawless (IF) Diamonds
  • Very Very Slightly Included (VVS1) Diamonds
  • Very Very Slightly Included (VVS2) Diamonds
  • Very Slightly Included (VS1) Diamonds
  • Very Slightly Included (VS2 )Diamonds
  • Slightly Included (SI1) Diamonds
  • Slightly Included (SI2) Diamonds
  • Slightly Included (SI3 )Diamonds

 
The value of the diamond depends on it’s Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat weight. (Popularly known as 4 C). By changing any of the characteristics, it may surprisingly affect the diamond’s value, even all other factors being equal.
