Buying an Engagement Ring
When buying and engagement ring at an Oceanside jeweler, the cut refers to the angles and proportions of the stone and has the largest impact on the diamond’s brilliance. Thus, if a stone is cut either too shallow or too deep, the light entering and subsequently leaking out of the bottom and sides will make it appear dull and murky. According to The Knot, a “well-cut diamond will have two factors: mirror-like facets and a ‘white light’ reflected both internally and externally, also known as the brilliance, or what will make your engagement ring shine bright.”
At Gems N' Loans, the most recognized and commonly used system to determine a diamond’s clarity was created by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). A flawless diamond shows absolutely no inclusions and is considered very rare.
