When embarking on the journey to explore diamond grades, it's quite common to find yourself delving into a vast labyrinth of information.

At Identity Diamonds, our core ethos revolves around celebrating the essence of what truly matters, steering clear of unnecessary complications. Hence, we have meticulously crafted this straightforward diamond quality guide.

Navigating the realm of diamond grading can be a daunting task, potentially overwhelming to the uninitiated. On the surface, it might appear as if transitioning from one grade to the next signifies a substantial leap, prompting concerns about the important impact of your diamond's specifications on its overall appearance. However, from a practical standpoint, I firmly believe that the distinction between adjacent grades is barely discernible to the naked eye, if at all. Unless, of course, you plan to scrutinize your diamond with a microscope (no judgment if you do 😉), as it's highly improbable that you'll be able to definitively differentiate between a VS1 and a VVS2 clarity diamond or distinguish between a G color and an H color gem.

Our three-tier diamond quality guide serves the purpose of simplifying your decision-making process, shifting the focus back to what truly counts. It empowers you to select the perfect diamond that aligns with your criteria, sparing you the complexity of mastering a comprehensive gemological grading system.

Furthermore, we take great care in personally selecting each diamond, meticulously choosing only those with optimal proportions, superior cuts, and a knack for radiating brilliance (yes, we mean exceptional sparkle!). Every diamond we offer embodies exquisite beauty, that is our promise. When you choose to shop with Identity Diamonds, you can rest assured, free from the mental gymnastics of calculating diamond crown angles in relation to total depth percentages. Who wants to grapple with such intricacies when in search of their forever ring? Let us handle it for you; we've got your back!

Of course, if you ever desire an in-depth discussion regarding your specific diamond preferences, we are more than happy to assist. Simply reach out to us through our contact form or send an email directly to info@identitydiamonds.com. We're here to cater to your every sparkly need!
