| These diamonds reflect most of the light that
enters them, creating a good deal of brilliance. With these
diamonds, the cutters have chosen to stray slightly from the
preferred diamond proportions in order to create a larger diamond.
The result is that these diamonds fall slightly outside of some
customer's preferences in terms of, for example, table size
or girdle width, though, in many cases many of the parameters
of diamonds in this range will overlap with certain parameters
of diamonds in the Ideal or Premium ranges. Generally, the price
of these diamonds is slightly below that of Premium cuts.
|| This diamond color is graded as near colorless.
Only a trained gemologist could notice a very slight tint, however
when mounted, this diamond does not show any trace of color
|| Only the smallest inclusions are allowable in
the field of the table and only small faults elsewhere in the
stone. Very small internal faults. Small external defects. May
contain small, easily seen inclusions under magnification in
the table, but still not visible to the naked eye.
