1.52 Pear Shape Diamond

M/SI2 with GIA report

Item R1100

People are always going on about one of the "C's"- Cut- which is really a matter of the greatest import when judging any diamond. It's pretty easy to spot a great cut- like this one- but the intricacies are daunting when people try to buy.

After all, everyone claims to have the best cut, and assigns their own name to it. A "Superb, Super Dooper" is way better than a "Deluxe Special Cut"- of course a diamond who's cut is described as "Ideal" has to be the best in any diamond right? No.

The fact is, great cut is self evident to a laymen.

So, we all agree cut is important- but another C- Color- has a direct, concrete influence on price.
An M is about 60% the price of a J.
Look at it this way- if the M color diamond is $10K, a J will about $18K. By this scale a D will cost about $35K.
Let's take a look at what "color" means when talking about an M color diamond.
Imagine a pair of glasses with a slight tint.

Don't expect blinding white. Think antique white. White enough to set into a white gold, or even platinum ring for example. In the shot below I can notice the color.

Remember, it's a very well cut diamond ( our "Hooper Doopertm cut.....) so although there is tint, it still throws a lot of light all over the room.

In terms of another "C"- clarity- the diamond is SI2.

There's a few inoffensive lines in the diamond- each is faint and small- but combined, they are enough to give cause for GIA to call it SI2.

You can actually make out one of the lines in the photo below

You'll NEVER be able to see these lines without a loupe, and likely not even if you did use a magnifying device.

This saves even more on the price.

This means YOU can buy a really well cut carat and a half diamond, with a GIA report- and stay in budget.

We pass on a lot of stones before we pick one like this.

The original laminated GIA report will accompany the diamond.

Our Semi Mount Store

We recommend buying your diamond and ring from the same seller. There are many reasons for this. For one thing, you have one company to be held responsible for the quality of your entire product.

We can sell our semi-mount rings at a substantially lower price than we could if semi-mount rings were our only business. Generally speaking, every time we sell a semi-mount, we are selling the diamond that is going in the center. Therefore we can afford to offer a super high quality product at a far lower price could find from a company selling only semi mount rings.

Potential Ring Choices

Our rings are all "Made To Order". Some are fully custom made. Our less expensive rings are made from parts, selected with an extremely critical eye from commercial casting suppliers. Meticulous attention to detail, thoughtful design, experienced craftspeople - all contribute to the superb quality of the rings we produce. Let us make one just for you.
