Here's an interesting part of grading diamonds... to do it properly requires a detachment from the "romance" of diamonds. Instead, grading requires more of a clinical examination.

Although I can easily see the differences in the colors and clarity- I have always looked at the diamonds with no subjective value judgments. When I was learning to grade, an imperfection in the diamond was actually quite desirable. They made grading more interesting. So, I would not necessarily think an SI2 was "worse" than a VVS1.

When I first learned to grade, at the "diamond school" the rules were strict. Those involved with the grading of the diamonds knew nothing about the pricing. At least at my level ( peon). Same for me with color. Sure, a colorless diamond was great - but when they had a little yellow, I liked them just as much.

Fast forward a few ( million) years, and now I have to understand the pricing. Gone are the halcyon days when I'd be handed an order, and told to fill it. "HEY YOU- pick 10,000 two point diamonds, grade 56b, on the double". WAIT that was no fun at all. Anyway, today the price of a diamond is something I need to keep in mind. Let's remember that many a 2 carat diamond has a price tag well over $20k - and 2carat plus diamonds under 9K are pretty rare indeed.

The one part of the grading which was subjective was the cut. A well cut diamond always looked amazing to me- even if it had a honking imperfection- while a badly cut one looked ugly even if it was totally clean. I love diamonds like this one, because no matter how well cut, they are, the diamond business just does not take them seriously.

It's among the lower priced 2 carat diamonds because it's not white, nor is it very yellow. The strong blue fluorescence is no detraction at all on this guy. It makes the diamond almost chameleon-like.

This is an extremely well cut diamond. The reason I call it a "dramatic" radiant is the corners. They are large. The clarity has been graded SI1, but the imperfection is totally hidden in a corner. The diamond is eye clean.
