The reasons that this stone makes the grade as our

Catch Of The Day

is due to the following:

Princess cut diamonds are likely to show their color more than round cut diamonds. Therefore the stone chosen has an H color. Any diamond specialist will tell you to stay away from stones with a color grade of J or more when choosing a fancy cut. A fancy cut is anything other than a round brilliant. This stone being H is sufficiently removed from J to suit our requirements beautifully.

You may notice that the clarity is SI1. This may be a concern, however when looking at the grading report we see that the inclusions (internal blemishes) are listed as a feather, cloud, and crystal. They are all located near the center of the top of the diamond, but they are all rather small inclusions. While I can’t be 100% certain that it is eye-clean, I am 97.99% certain that the inclusions are not noticeable. What truly makes this diamond a bargain is that its Symmetry has been graded as Excellent, and along with a Very Good cut, this diamond will be B.E.A-utiful!

Definitely gets our “No Regrets” stamp of approval.
