Among professionals, we are used to saying that a beautiful stone is a well-cut stone.
The color and the purity of the stone are elements which will come into consideration when marketing the stone and will vary according to the markets.
A woman can be beautiful regardless of the color of her skin. For a stone it is the same thing, regardless of its color, only its proportions and symmetry are important.
For this, we have created the gradation called "CUT".
As in the table above, it goes from LOW to IDEAL.
We can consider that a stone with "GOOD" CUT begins to have a good size and therefore good light reflection.
Diamond is a natural stone and nature does not know how to make stones that are all identical and of the same color.
So we decided to classify the different colors of diamonds.
The highest color has the letter "D" and the lowest the letter "Z".
A diamond is considered tinted from the letter "J".
In Europe, we prefer to buy "WHITE" diamonds which are graded above "J".
We must not lose sight of the fact that color is a subjective notion and that the larger the diamond, the more its mass returns a whiter color.
Another thing we need to clarify is that not all diamonds vary towards yellow. Some go gray and Zimbabwe's diamonds go green.
And some very tinted diamonds will take on the yellow color, which will increase their value.

Diamond is a natural stone and therefore cannot be 100% pure. There are 3 ways to examine a diamond. The eye, the magnifying glass and the microscope. There are 5 qualities of clarity in a diamond: IF, VVS, VS, SI, I.
If you look at a diamond without a magnifying glass or microscope and can see inclusions in the stone, the stone is considered "I" Stitched (heavily marketed in low income countries and the US market).
If it is necessary to use a magnifying glass to view inclusions in the diamond, your stone may be graded from "VVS" to "SI".
For more details, we advise you to refer to the choice of diamonds offered above next to the jewel (European market).
If it is necessary to use a microscope to see inclusions in a stone, the diamond will be classified as "IF" (Asian market).
