DIAMONDS

CASH FOR DIAMONDS

For most people, buying a diamond is a new experience, but that doesn't mean it should be overwhelming.

Understanding a diamond's quality characteristics is straightforward and simple.


 

There are 5 Elements to a Diamond:

  • Shape

  • Cut

  • Clarity

  • Color

  • Carat

  • Weight


Ideal Cut: Represents roughly the top 3% of diamond quality based on cut. Reflects nearly all light that enters the diamond. An exquisite and rare cut.

Very Good Cut: Represents roughly the top 15% of diamond quality based on cut. Reflects nearly as much light as the ideal cut, but for a lower price.

Good Cut: Represents roughly the top 25% of diamond quality based on cut. Reflects most light that enters. Much less expensive than a very good cut.

Fair Cut: Represents roughly the top 35% of diamond quality based on cut. Still a qualiy diamond, but a fair cut will not be as brilliant as a good cut.

Poor Cut: Diamonds that are generally so deep and narrow or shallow and wide that they lose most of the light cut the sides and bottom. Blue Nile does not carry diamonds with cut grades of poor.
