N: No Fluorescence

F/FB: Faint/Faint Blue Fluorescence

SL: Slight Fluorescence

S: Strong Fluorescence

EF: Extreme Fluorescence

Fluorescent diamonds, especially the extreme rare cases known as overblues, give a diamond a visible haziness that undervalues them on the market. They appear almost cloudy in light with strong ultraviolet content, which compromises their clarity and decreases their appeal.

If the cut is too deep or too shallow light will spill through the side or bottom and be lost, resulting in a less brilliant display and thus, a less valuable diamond. Cut is the most critical of all the variables that affect the value of a diamond. It is essential you know the quality of the cut when purchasing a diamond. Round diamonds are symmetrical and capable of reflecting the most of the light, are the most brilliant of all the diamond shapes.

Diamond Clarity

Diamonds that are absolutely clean are very much in demand and are therefore the most expensive. View Details.

Diamond Cut

In its natural state, a diamond's beauty is generally concealed. While nature determines a diamond's color, clarity, and carat weight, the hand of a master craftsman is needed to release its fire and beauty. View Details.
