My brutally honest opinion about diamond grades...
When looking for an introduction to diamond grades, it is easy to find ourself in a big ol' rabbit hole...
Because we are all about celebrating the things that matter and not getting caught up in the things that don't, we created this simplified diamond quality guide.
Diamond grading can be a little complex and somewhat overwhelming. And the truth is... on paper, it may look like the jump from one grade to the next is huge, and that the specs of your diamond are going to have such a big impact on the look of your piece... In reality, it is my sincere opinion that the difference from one grade to the next is barely perceivable in person, if at all.
Unless you plan to carry around a microscope to look at your diamond (no judgement if you do 😉), to the naked eye there is no visual difference between a VS1 and a VVS2 clarity diamond, and it's highly unlikely that you'll ever be able to tell with certitude the difference between a G color and a H color gem.
Out three tier diamond quality guide is meant to simplify your decision and put the focus back on what matters. It allows you the ability to choose the right diamond for you and matches your criteria, without the headache of having to learn and understand a complete gemological grading system.
Moreover, I hand select each diamond carefully and I always only choose diamonds that have optimal proportions, are cut well, and maximize light return (a.k.a. SPARKLE!). Every diamond we offer is beautiful, so you'll never have to worry about doing the mental gymnastic of calculating diamond crown angle in relation to total depth percentage... Because who wants to be thinking about that when shopping for their forever ring? Let us take care of it. We got you, promise!
