The earth mined diamonds available at our Icing On The Ring showroom are provided to be the best selection in the Los Angeles Diamond District. Each diamond carefully selected and assessed by the rigorous GIA diamond grading chart ensures that the diamonds are indeed the best of the best – in cut, carat weight, clarity, and color. Given that earth mined diamonds are typically billions of years old, the diamond quality guide guarantees perfection endlessly.
The GIA diamond quality guide is composed of four factors, such as color, carat weight, clarity, and cut. Carat weight is contingent on the weight of the diamond; a large diamond would be more valuable. For clarity, diamonds that are absolved of marks and blemishes would have a higher value. The cut refers to the facets carved into a diamond that allows light to reflect. The color is based on the absence of color from the diamond – the best-rated diamond should be colorless. However, this does not correlate with fancy colored diamonds. The ones outside a standard color range with vivid hues would be more valuable, such as yellow diamonds or pink diamonds. Diamonds with any noticeable variation in shade are considerably rarer.
Choosing the perfect precious metal to pair with your earth mined diamond is crucial to a setting. There are various different shades of yellow gold when scaled against each other that you can see a tangible difference in color and quality. Pure gold is too malleable to be worn, so a majority of rings are composed of various other metals. 14k vs. 18k gold varies in the purity of gold, which means if you are active and play sports – 14k gold may be a better suit than 18k gold. As for white gold vs. yellow gold, the color in white gold is shaped by the amount of nickel incorporated into the ring to ensure durability.
