Diamond Information
Certification: GIA This diamond comes accompanied by a diamond certificate grading report from the GIA.

Cut: Very Good This diamond is cut to exacting proportions that reflect almost as much light entering it as an Ideal cut. Diamonds with a Very Good cut grade represent a brilliant diamond at a lower price than a diamond with an Ideal cut grade.

Color: D This diamond has no tint of color, as D is the highest color grade. A completely colorless diamond can reflect all of the spectral colors most accurately and therefore is highly prized. Diamonds with this grade are extremely rare, and this will affect the diamond’s overall value.

Clarity: SI1 This diamond has a clarity grade of slightly included to the first degree. Diamonds with an SI1 clarity grade have small inclusions such as pinpoints, included crystals, knots, clouds, and feathers that can be seen somewhat easily under power 10 magnification. Although theoretically it may be possible to see an inclusion with the unaided eye, this is rare in an SI1 clarity grade and will depend on the size, location, and nature of the inclusion. Diamonds with this grade offer an excellent value compared with VS or VVS quality diamonds.

Diamond Information
Certification: GIA This diamond comes accompanied by a diamond certificate grading report from the GIA.

Cut: Good This diamond might be slightly deeper or shallower, or have a slightly larger or smaller table facet compared to a diamond with an Ideal cut, probably resulting from the cutter striking a balance of cut and carat weight retention. Diamonds with a Good cut grade reflect the most light entering them and represent an excellent value.

Color: G This diamond is in the upper range of near-colorless. The only way to see a very slight tint of color is when it is compared directly to a higher color grade by an expert grader. G color diamonds will appear dazzling bright white in the setting and represent an excellent balance of higher color and great value, as the price, depending on other quality factors, will be less than that of a D, E, or F color diamond.

Clarity: IF This diamond has a clarity grade of IF, or internally flawless, which means that the diamond shows no internal inclusions under 10 power magnification, but it might have very tiny blemishes or transparent polish marks on the surface of the diamond. Diamonds with an IF clarity grade are extremely rare, and the value will reflect this.

Clarity: VVS1 This diamond is very, very slightly included to the first degree, which means that there are minute inclusions that are very difficult to see under 10 power magnification by a trained gemologist. The average person would have to look at the diamond for a long time under magnification to discern the very tiny pinpoints or polish marks that distinguish this grade from IF. With a VVS1 clarity grade, there is no possibility of seeing any inclusion with the unaided eye.
