Amor Pistis. Diamonds. August 07th , 2017.
Diamonds are examined mainly by the 'four Cs': carat, clarity, color, and cut. They are measured in carats; one carat equals 1/5th of a gram. These gemstones also may show different colors like white, yellow, brown, pink, red, blue, purple, green, violet, and orange. Out of these, the white, yellow, and brown ones are most commonly used. A diamond's color can be determined by studying its face up and down. Their clarity determines how pure they are, and the ones having less blemishes and inclusions have better clarity. Cuts in diamonds enhance their color, shine, and hide inclusions. If the cuts are too deep or shallow, the gemstone will not have a good dispersion. Pear, emerald, marquise, and brilliant are the most popular diamond cuts.
Now if you want something more ornate and formal, you can't go wrong with chandelier earrings studded with blue diamonds. A combination of blue and white diamonds or amethysts are good designs for chandelier earrings. They come in many designs and styles from the simple to the long shoulder grazing ones. The cost of chandelier diamond earrings is considerable, but then it is also a good investment.
Natural diamonds are forged deep in the belly of earth over millions of years, under high temperature and pressure conditions. From there, they are pushed towards the surface through volcanic vents. Finally, through the mining process, they are collected, then cut, polished and finally sold.
Conflict diamond, hot diamond, blood diamond, war diamond, converted diamond―all these terms stand for the same. Diamonds that are illegally mined in a region in Africa, which is facing a situation of prolonged rebellion, military unrest or guerrilla activities are called blood diamonds as the primary purpose of their mining is to fund such activities in order to procure arms and ammunition for the same. Mining of blood diamonds has been taking place in the African nations of Angola, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cte d'Ivoire and Zimbabwe as these countries have a long history of coups and civil wars. Also, since the African continent is rich in diamonds, being responsible for supplying almost two-thirds of the world's diamonds.
