Lab Created Diamond
The above diamond has proportions and angles which are required for AGS’ Excellent cut grade. The American Gem Society (AGS) has developed a diamond grading system which is based on light performance. This is by far the most effective way of determining the cut quality of a diamond as the system takes into account the very advanced research conducted by both AGS and its sister organization GIA. See The Fascinating Science of Diamond Fire.
The Selection Process
I assess diamonds for a number of factors. For a diamond to be included in my recommendations it must have:
- the required angles according to potentially qualify for AGS’ ideal/excellent cut grade;
- good contrast
- optical precision
- high quality diamond material;
- good value;
- no visible inclusions (eye-clean);
I only include a diamond I am confident the recipient will absolutely love.
