Diamond Education Guide

  • What’s the difference between yellow gold and white gold?

The original color of pure gold (24k) is bright yellow. The different shades the gold receives, which are known to us especially from the jewelry business, are a result of mixing gold with other metals.

During the mixing according to the accustomed percentages to receive gold in the color of the metals which are added to the gold and mixed with it are visible in the final metal received.

White gold is gold mixed with bright metals such as: nickel, radium, silver etc.

  •  Can A Diamond Fall Off The Ring?

Well, first of all it’s important to understand how diamonds are mounted. Usually a diamond is set by an expert setter in one of the traditional diamond setting techniques: pave, a trench, prongs   setting, meat setting.

In each of the aforementioned techniques, the setter covers a certain part (or parts) of the diamond with a metal, in such a way that it presses the diamond down and holds it facing the body of the jewelry or the stone house for the diamond.

Some people think certain techniques are “safer” than others, and some think that setting six prongs to hold the diamond is safer than using four prongs   etc…

Eventually, if the piece of jewelry is produced in a professional and correct manner, there’s no reason he should fall, unless it is being used in an inappropriate manner.

It’s important to understand that we are talking about a piece of jewelry that is built and designed to stand against the regular hardships pieces of jewelry encounter… wrong usage, exaggerated friction, falling, crushing or any extreme action that might bend, erode or harm the setting and therefore the diamond might fall, even if it was set properly.

The jewelry sold by vidar jewelry is manufactured according to the highest standards in the jewelry industry. Each diamond is set by an expert setter under a microscope, and the finished piece of jewelry goes through the process of quality control, before it is sent to the client.

In any case we recommend our clients to insure their valuable jewelry against any risks (a standard diamond jewelry insurance which is included in the apartment insurance).

  •  What is the 4C’s?

• Color
• Clarity
• Carat
• Cut

Getting educated on these characteristics will allow you to know which ones are most important to you. You can also save money by foregoing the characteristics that are less important to you; for instance, if diamond cut really matters to you, yet color doesn’t as much, you’ll save money on a diamond with a really nice cut that lacks in color.

Every diamond purchased from us is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Every certificate includes a unique online verification code and a grading report with detailed information about the 4 important characteristics of the diamond, also known as the 4 C’s. This page provides valuable information about those important attributes and describes the cut, color, clarity and carat weight, the 4 C’s of the diamond..

1. Color
The most sought after diamonds out there are completely colorless, as they can refract light for more brilliance and sparkle. Meanwhile, diamonds on engagement rings that are off-white will be less brilliant, since light will be refracted less.

Color is graded in alphabetical order, with D being the best and thus the highest form of colorlessness, and X being last. The diamonds in the S through X range will likely take on a light yellow hue, which is not considered desirable or valuable. On the other hand, diamonds under the grades D through F are considered the most valuable. However, you can still find high quality color in diamonds rated G through J.
While most people want their diamonds to be as colorless as possible, some people are attracted to the warm, almost honey-like hue of a lower color grade.

2. Clarity
The clarity of a diamond indicates the construction of the diamond and how many flaws, or what the diamond industry calls inclusions, are within the diamond’s overall inner architecture. Clarity also takes into account blemishes, which refers to any exterior flaws to the diamond.

Clarity grades any diamond gets are determined by diamond graders with 10x loupe magnification technology. The best grade a engagement ring diamond can get is F, for Flawless. The worst grade a diamond can get is I3, which indicates inclusions that are also visible to the naked eye.

3. Carat
Carat indicates the weight measurement of a diamond. For example, one carat equals 0.2 grams, or 200 milligrams. Because larger diamonds are far rarer in nature than smaller ones, the diamonds with a larger carat will be much more valuable – and therefore much more expensive – than those that weigh one carat or less. Take a look at different carat sizes and see which suits you best, but most importantly, opt for what you’re comfortable paying for.

4. Cut
Cut is often confused with shape, which is a mistake. The cut refers to a diamond’s reflective qualities, whereas shape merely refers to the overall outer shape. Cut is arguably the most important quality of a diamond for wedding ring sets, since its reflective qualities affect its sparkle, brilliance and fire, and thus ultimately how beautiful it will look.

The grades for cuts are verbal, with “Ideal” being perfect, and “very poor” being the worst score a diamond can get.
