When a diamond has the best cut, the incident light falling on it passes through the crown, table, and finally the pavilion, where it gets reflected from one side to the other before escaping through the diamond's table again. Such a cut is also known as the ideal cut and this phenomenon of light passing through the diamond is called "light return". The diamond's brightness, dispersion and brilliance is enhanced or depreciated based on the movement of the light within it. A bad cut or a slight amount of asymmetry severely hampers the quality of the diamond as it causes the light to escape out of the diamond prematurely. This phenomenon is also called "light leakage".
The structure of diamonds allows them to refract a considerably larger amount of light as compared to white sapphire. As such, they shine more brilliantly and display more colors, in comparison.
Ammonia can also be used for cleaning diamond jewelry. All you have got to do is, take one part water and one part ammonia and mix them together. Soak the jewelry in the ammonia-water mix for not more than 15 seconds. Take the jewelry out and clean the debris entrapped within the jewelry settings. Once done, rinse with water and dry using a clean non-abrasive cloth.
