When purchasing an item from Diana Rafael, you will be able to choose the type of metal that your preferred piece of jewelry—such as a ring with a clarity enhanced diamond—will be made of. You will have two main options: gold or platinum.
In ancient times, long before the development of diamond cutting, people preferred diamonds in their natural state. Because there were no scientific means to improve upon Mother Nature’s product, people enthusiastically sought out diamonds with as few imperfections as possible. Diamonds with irregular, asymmetric shapes, or those with stains that inhibit the stone’s brilliance, were simply discarded.
Diamonds, whether of the clear enhanced variety or otherwise, come in a multitude of shapes. By ‘shape’ we mean the appearance of the diamond when viewed from above. These shapes did not pop out of the blue; rather, they developed over time, sometimes as a response to one another. The following article briefly discusses the history of the shapes of diamonds you will likely find here in Diana Rafael.
Clarity enhanced diamonds are an increasingly appealing option for jewelry buyers. These diamonds are called enhanced because they have been subjected to mechanical or chemical processes that remove inclusions (impurities within the diamond) and blemishes (impurities on the surface of the diamond), thereby improving the stone’s clarity. For this reason, a budget-conscious buyer would end up spending less for a visibly superior product.
