Every diamond has certain inclusions for e.g., clouds, lines etc. A flawless diamond is said to have no inclusions within it. Inclusions are traces of the leftover carbon on the diamond. The fewer the number of these imperfections, the better the value of the diamond which also appears "cleaner" to the eye or loupe. This will, in turn, enhance the brilliance of the light passing through the diamond.
If you make the comparison, with respect to quality, then you won't find any difference, as chemically they are similar. The fire, brilliance and unique optical qualities of natural diamonds are exactly matched by synthetic diamonds. The only difference is in colors and flaws shown by natural diamonds that cannot be mimicked in synthetic ones. In spite of this, even experienced jewelers find it difficult sometimes to distinguish between synthetic and natural diamonds. There is advanced equipment available, which can easily distinguish between the two types by checking the inclusions and internal composition of the diamonds. Synthetic diamonds have distinct metal inclusions, which natural diamonds are devoid of.
A variation of the three stone diamond ring, a diamond ring with side stones consist of a central diamond that is flanked with two or more diamonds on each sides. The side stones are usually brilliant cut diamonds of a smaller size. But side stones can also be some other jewel like amethyst, ruby, sapphire and topaz.
The value and price of a diamond is based on four factors: clarity, color, carat weight, and cut, also popularly known as the 4 C's of diamond grading. Of the four C's, the diamond's cut is largely responsible for enhancing its visual appearance and sparkle. With reference to diamonds, cut has two meanings. The first meaning is its shape, which could be oval, round, etc, and the second is execution of a specific type of cut within the shape of the diamond. Cut grading is the rating which later determines its cost and quality.
