Recognize Diamond Jewelry



Diamonds, is the hardest thing on earth, are resistant to damage. However, combined diamond jewelry in different metals, and the treatment will vary with each metal. Diamonds should be cleaned in a solution of one part ammonia to six parts water, using a soft scrub brush to remove dirt. This is a good idea to clean this jewelry once a year by a jeweler, as well as for security arrangements. Diamond jewelry should be stored in soft cloth bags to ensure that the stone will not scratch other jewelry. Diamond itself is made of carbon that formed naturally at high temperature and thermodynamic processes of nature. The authenticity of a diamond affected five elements known as 5C, namely carat, clarity, color, cut and certificate

Carat 
Carat is the unit of weight for diamonds, with one carat is equivalent to 100 points. You'll often see a diamond referred to as a stone or a diamond 3/4-carat 75-points. Larger stones are often more highly valued, but size should not be the only consideration - high brilliance, which varies according to grade clarity, cut, and color, highly desirable in a diamond.



Clarity 
Clarity of a diamond marked by brilliance in capturing the slightest light and reflecting back. This is what is termed 'flickering' or the underlying maxim 'like a diamond in the mud'. According to wikipedia, diamond clarity is influenced by the 'dirt' in the form of other minerals and cracks on the surface or in a diamond. Mixture of minerals and diamonds is what causes the cracks look less shiny or 'muddy'. Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is one of the international reference in the standardization of the measurement of the clarity of a diamond. The highest clarity of the best labeled a 'flawless category (FL)', followed by 'very very slightly included (VVS)' to 'category included (i) as the lowest category. However, not a few who consider some 'minor defect' has become one of those diamond feature.


Color

Hough diamonds come in a variety of colors, colorless diamonds have traditionally been considered the most valuable. Most diamonds graded on a scale using the letters of the alphabet, from D (colorless), the best grade, through Z (light yellow). It is difficult for the untrained eye to see such variations in color unless stones are being compared is put together.

Cut

There are four common types of diamond cuts; the oval, marquis, pear, heart, emerald and baguette. But not the types that determine the shape of this piece of diamond prices. However, the accuracy and neatness cut diamonds that affect the quality of reflected light that enter through it.


Certificate
This is the latest element that changes the concept of quality assessment of the previous diamond 4C. Although not all stores that sell diamond jewelry includes a certificate of international class like a diamond certificate issued by Gemological Institute of America (GIA), but at least in the letter of the purchase of a diamond wedding ring, the quality of carat, clarity, color and cut are always listed. You need a certificate is not just as a personal knowledge of the diamond you have, but as the force of law when you want to sell or demand related to the jewelry store if it is found that the quality of the diamond you buy is not as stated in their certificates. For extra security, buy a diamond always at jewelry stores that include a certificate from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), American Gemological Laboratories (AGL), the International Gemological Institute (IGI), HRD / Antwerp Diamond High Council, and the Schweizerische Stiftung fur Edelstein -Forschung (SSEF)
