What makes Internally Flawless (IF) diamonds special!

In the world of diamonds, IF is one of the best diamond clarity grades, one can ever get their hands on.

What Are the Main Diamond Clarity Grades?

Diamond clarity is graded by evaluating the number, position and visibility of internal and external flaws in a diamond.

The G.I.A. (Gemological Institute of America) grades clarity using six main categories: Flawless (FL), Internally Flawless (IF), Very, Very Slightly Included (VVS), Very Slightly Included (VS), Slightly Included (SI), and Included (I).

So IF diamonds are among the rarest and are the top of the range diamonds.

What is IF Clarity?
IF stands for “Internally Flawless” and is the next best clarity grade after Flawless. Diamonds graded “IF” have blemishes that are so slight that even a trained gemologist has a hard time seeing them under a 10x loupe.

These two -grades may differ in designation and definition, but in reality, a consumer who is not an expert will not see any difference between them with the unaided eye.

How does one shop for IF clarity diamonds?

IF is a great clarity to have if you want to own a rare diamond with fiery brilliance. IF-clarity diamonds have top-notch brilliance and sparkle as these stones have very few and extremely small imperfections. Thus, light enters such diamonds virtually unobstructed.

Also, when purchasing a diamond, do not forget to also consider the cut and color of the stone. Because no matter how high a diamond’s clarity is, its brilliance will be severely diminished if the cut is poor and makes the light entering the stone leak out. And if a diamond’s color is also low grade, it can make the clearest stone look duller than a nearly colorless diamond that has more visible inclusions.

So it’s simple friends. Only look for IF diamonds when you’re out to purchase the finest in diamond jewellery. And the sparkle that surrounds you will make it worth it.

It is only recently that men have begun wearing diamond wedding bands. And now they have begun to appreciate and relish the sparkle that comes with them.

couple-rings-_fb__800x800When it comes to diamonds, men’s rings differ from women’s in their lack of diamond-mounts. A women’s diamond engagement or wedding ring can turn heads with a generous dose of sparkle, featuring one or more large diamonds. On the other hand, the diamond on a man’s ring is more discreet.

If you’re unfamiliar with the wedding ring world, you may be confused with the term“comfort-fit, i.e. rings meant for daily wear. And many men actually prefer their wedding bands to be that way.

When it comes to choosing a ring, the next thing to keep in mind is the purity of the metal. Men’s wedding rings, like any other piece of wedding jewelry, comes in different flavours such as gold, silver or platinum. And it’s up to you, to choose the one you want.

The third factor to keep in mind is engravings. And the possibilities of that are endless.

If you’re looking for a classic band, engraving options can open up a whole new world of possibilities. Like even engraving your finger prints. Thus making any ring feel even more special.

Now that you’re equipped with all the information that you need, go forth and find your partner a ring that suits your budget, and his style.

Call us today to know more on the infinite possibilities to choose the perfect wedding band for him.

LET YOUR RING DO THE TALKING

No two women are the same. Some dream of classic solitaire set in platinum, while others desire the round diamond solitaire in white gold. And then there are those who fantasize about wearing a cushion halo engagement ring in rose gold.

Age is always not just a number. Especially when it comes to an engagement ring. Women over 35 prefer the classic round or oval diamond in a white gold setting, while the under 30s prefer single solitaire with less accent stones.

instagramMen often go through a rollercoaster of emotions, in an effort to surprise their partners with their dream ring. Despite the joy that comes with popping the question, getting the right rock is also equally important. So before you start the adventure of getting that perfect ring, it’s important to do your homework. From facebook likes and pins, or from talking to her friends to even asking her subtle questions the options are aplenty.

You can always buy a nice delicate engagement ring for a price you can afford, and update it later with a bigger-sized st
one. Just ensure you research well on diamonds, gemstones and metals before whipping out your wallet. The most important lesson is to choose something that represents good taste and reflects the commitment and love between you two.

It’s as simple as this. Not every diamond deserves to be a Sunny Diamond. Not even one in hundred, or a thousand. Everyshutterstock_110377610-lr diamond at our showroom is one in a million. The one that made the cut. The rarest one, for our customers who deserve nothing but the exceptional.

DIAMONDS THAT MAKE THE CUT – QUALITY DIAMONDS

Majority of the diamonds sold through most jewellers, boutiques or even online lack the lustre or sparkle a QUALITY diamond should have. Buying poor quality diamonds is an alarmingly common pattern today since the market is only flooded with poor quality diamonds.

  1. Why does a diamond cutter cut diamonds poorly?

A reason for poorly cut diamonds is due to diamond cutters wanting / needing to preserve as much stone weight as possible for the maximum final diamond weight.

social-media-nov-28-3

Here’s an example.  A particular diamond might weigh .90 carats if it was cut ideally. Diamonds weighing 1 carat or more fetch a more premium price. The cutter might be tempted / or told to, facet the diamond a bit differently to preserve the extra weight, making it a more expensive diamond by weight.

  1. Reflection, Refraction, Dispersion – Know what’s what.

Light bouncing off the surface of a diamond is called reflection. Light entering the stone and bouncing off an interior wall is called refraction. And the light exiting the diamond is called dispersion.

So how does it matter to you, you might ask?

It’s simple. The more the light refracting from inside the diamond and dispersing from the table, the better. Good diamonds refract and disperse lots of light. Bad diamonds don’t. They just reflect light, which any piece of clean piece of glass can do.

You need to look beyond mere reflection. The reason good refraction and dispersion are so important in your chosen diamond is because when you wear your diamond every day it will get dirty.

social-media-nov-28-2When you look at a diamond, rock it back and forth to see the light dispersion. The most important light dispersion is what you can see looking down into the table. You’ll also see dispersion of light from those top crown facets.

Once you can tell the difference between light reflection and light refraction, you will be ahead of most first-time diamond shoppers.

Poorer quality diamonds can be / are made to look better than they are by showing them under the mega-wattage overhead lights of some jewellery stores. A diamond of poor quality will not look as good at your office or in your kitchen as it did at the store where you bought it.

For this reason, it is recommended  that you examine diamonds in natural light, away from the bright lights in the showroom.

  1. The final cut

Does different diamonds seems to have just a little more sparkle? If it does, chances are it’s a better cut stone.social-media-nov-28-1

Sparkle is one of the most important qualities in a diamond. The rock you own should be like a little ball of blazing sunlight & not a dull lump of beach glass.

A good diamond, will sparkle, shine, glitter and glow. A poorly cut, or bad diamond will break your heart. And your wallet.
