Why do we LOVE imperfect diamonds?

The very first thing I notice about a diamond is its cut. Open up the parcel paper that diamond cutters keep the loose stones in, and in a heartbeat you can tell if it's well cut. Sure, there are a lot of intricacies about the cut, but just like you look at Brad Pitt, or Angelina Jolie and know they're good looking- I look at a diamond and know it's well cut.
In the shot above, the things I love about this diamond's cut are eminently clear. Amazing sparkle, phenomenal life- a size that will meet, or exceed your expectations of mass. It's huge.

I'll admit it- I probably love diamond shopping as much as any of you. It's so exciting because every one is different. This one is a J color, I1 as graded by GIA.
Sure, I love seeing the D/VVS1 five carat diamonds one of our favorite cutters always have. But in many ways, I'm more psyched to find a J/I1 in the box. Look at it this way, this diamond costs less than one carat out of a 5.00 D/VVS1. Yes, less than 20%. When I go diamond shopping, I'd really rather buy a whole lot of really sweet looking affordable stones rather than one super premium stone.
If you want the quarter of a mil D/VVS five carat, just give us a call. We'll run right across the street, grab the one our buddy likely has- and show it to you like you're looking at this one.
Diffused Carbon Spots make for a very clear I1
In the photo above you can clearly see the little black spots. Thing is, in person, they really blend in to the sparkle.

None of these little spots is large enough to block a significant amount of light. In essence, the diamond could be a flawless, so long as you can't see any of the little black spots with your eye- and I can't.

What about the J color- isn't that tinted?
We hear so many stories about how jewelers, and others, knock J color diamonds.
"You don't want a tinted stone!", they are told.
First of all, J is such a slight tint, you'd really need to be extremely sensitive to color to even notice. You already know if you're in this category- and you're shopping for D-E-F color diamonds.
Second of all- even if you could see a slight difference from a D color- why would you think that's ....bad? Why put such a negative connotation to a color? In fact, we use this to our advantage. We offer larger, better cut diamonds, with GIA grading, for reasonable prices.
These photos show you the range of colors that can come off a J colored diamond- the faint Fluorescence also helps it look colorless.
We're offering this diamond loose, and you'll find no better shop- anywhere- to set it for you.
