Sela Anamarija. Diamonds. August 07th , 2017.
There are two types of cuts on a diamond. The first one is the actual shape of the diamond, of which there are several types. The most common types of diamond cuts are brilliant (round), princess (square), oval, marquise (eye-shaped), emerald, pear, asscher (squarish octagon), cushion, trillion and baguette (long rectangle). These cuts define how the diamond is studded into jewelry. The princess cut and the brilliant cut are the most common types you will find. The cuts should always be perfect to refract the right amount of light through the upper surface.
Diamonds are everyone's favorite. There are many people who dream of buying diamond jewelry. But the high price of the diamond does not let everyone fulfills their dream. There are many people who compromise their dream because of the high price of the diamond sets . Although, I have discussed some other topic about diamonds but this one is quite a different one. Previously, I have written about history of diamonds, different colors of diamonds, etc. And now I did a little research to find some core facts about that expensiveness of diamonds. I found some on Internet and after analyzing all of them I decoded to share it with the world.
The Hope, or French Blue Diamond, or the Tavernier Blue Diamond, was mined in the Kollur mine in Golconda, India. At that time, its weight was 112 carats. In 1660, a French merchant-traveler and explorer, Jean Baptist Tavernier visited India. Some say he purchased the blue gemstone from an Indian slave. However, there are stories that say Tavernier stole the gemstone from the forehead of an idol of a Hindu Goddess Sita. In 1669, Tavernier smuggled the blue gemstone to France, where he sold it to the king of France, Louis XIV, the Sun King.
☛ The Kimberley Process is an international diamond certification scheme that was initiated in 2003, and backed by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). The goal behind this certification scheme was to stem the flow of conflict diamonds that were used by African rebel movements to fund wars against UN-recognized lawful governments.
