Loose diamond or those that are not yet mounted on any jewelry has a lot of qualities. These qualities are to be considered in finding the right one to put on your wedding ring. The most common qualities that are considered before choosing the diamond are color,clarity,cut and carat. Color is the amount of the touch of yellow in the diamond. Under the assumption that the other qualities are equal, the clearer the diamond, the better quality it has. This is usually marked D, E and F. Another quality of your loose diamonds for your Wedding Ring or Engagement Rings is clarity. Clarity is how flawless the diamond is. At a certain magnification, diamonds has small flaws. There are also some flaws that are seen with the naked eye, which means it is of lower clarity. High clarity grade is marked as IF, then, VVS1 down to SI2 in some websites. Carat, on the other hand, is the weight of the diamond. If all other three qualities are equal, heavier diamonds are more valuable. Cut of the diamond is also very important. An excellent cut of a diamond brings out the brilliance and fire. The cut also provides for the diamond shape sometimes. There are Emerald Cut Diamonds, Heart Cut Diamonds, Round Brilliant Diamonds Cut, Princess Cut and other popular cuts.
Princess cut is equally popular among diamond cutters, as these diamonds retain more crystal weight. According to them, princess cut diamonds retain a major part of the rough diamond, as compared to the round brilliant cut. Almost 80% of the rough diamond is retained in case of a princess cut; whereas, only 50% is retained in a round brilliant cut. So princess cut diamonds are cheaper, when compared to round brilliant cut diamonds. Rough diamonds that come in the shape of octahedron crystals (like two pyramids joined at the base) are used for making princess cut diamonds. In case of other diamond cuts, only a single diamond is made from a rough diamond, whereas two princess cut diamonds can be obtained from one rough diamond. This again means very less wastage of the original rough stone.
Couples interested in bridal set engagement rings. The tapered shape of a marquise is perfectly suited to additional ring enhancers and accent stones.
Prong Setting: This is a classic style in which metal prongs are made to hold the dazzling stone from the base. However, this may invite repairing, as prongs tend to wear out over the years.
