While buying diamonds, most people base their decision on size and sparkle. However, similar stones with a large disparity in price leave us flummoxed. To understand this, we need to look at the grades. The value of this gemstone is estimated according to the four Cs: clarity, color, carat, and cut. Richard T. Liddicoat of the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) proposed and developed the GIA Clarity Grading System in 1952. Over time, several changes have been incorporated into the system. Most of them are graded according to the GIA chart, which considers minute differences while categorizing these stones. Among the different qualities the chart is graded on, clarity, color, and cut are qualitative values, whereas carat, which is the weight of the diamond, is a quantitative value.
Hardness and Weight: Diamonds are known to be the hardest natural substance on earth, however, CZs, do not hold this property. CZ are more prone to normal wear and tear, and chip and break easily. They have a rating of 8.5 to 9.0 out of 10 on the Mohs' hardness scale. Diamonds have a 10 out of 10 rating. Although, not as hard as a diamond, it weighs 1.75 times more than a diamond of the same size.
Pink diamonds and pink sapphires are the very latest trend in female jewellery. Traditional precious metal wedding bands and engagement rings set with pink sapphires or pink diamonds have again set the world of high fashion and celebrity circles buzzing. Traditionally, diamonds conjure up an image of clear brilliant crystal; sparkling white and bright. Scintillating blue sapphires have been revered for centuries, and adorn many royal collections.
If you are shopping for a diamond ring on a budget, then the best designs are pave set diamond rings. Not all ring styles looks good on a person's hand, so choose a style that suits you.
