DIAMONDS AND JEWELRY
What are GIA Certificates?
GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is the largest independent grading laboratory worldwide. In fact GIA invented the grading system as we know it and is known to be strict and reliable with their grading reports. The lab reports detail key characteristics of each diamond. Having a 3rd party independent evaluation provides piece of mind that you have an unbiased opinion of your jewelry investment.
What are the four C’s?
The Four “C’s” represent the four primary means that diamond grading labs use to determine a diamond’s quality. They stand for Cut, Color, Carat and Clarity.
A diamond’s cut is a reflection of how well the diamond returns light to the viewers’ eye. A well-cut stone appears fiery and brilliant, while a poor cut will look more dull and lifeless.
Clarity describes a diamond that looks clean to the naked eye when placed in a face-up position from a distance of 8 to 10 inches away. Diamonds of a VS or higher quality will be eye-clean. Diamonds of a SI and lower should be inspected to determine whether any inclusions are visible or not.
Do white gold rings turn yellow over time?
Yes. Rhodium plating is a process which helps give white gold a pure white color. Over time that rhodium plating may wear off, revealing a buttery gold color underneath. Diamonds Direct offers free lifetime rhodium plating on all our jewelry.
