Physical Properties of Loose Diamonds

Refractive Index

The refractive index is the ratio of the speed of light in a vacuum to that in a material. It is the most important physical property, affecting brilliance, as brilliance results from the way light is refracted when traveling through the diamond and then reflected back to the eye. Diamond has a RI of 2.42.

Dispersion

As light travels through the stone, the white light is spread separating into spectral colors (rainbow colors). The splitting effect is called dispersion or “fire”. For diamonds it is 0.044.

Luster

Measures the surface reflection, and, as a result, the shine of a diamond. Diamond’s luster is 17.2%.

Durability/Hardness

Diamond is the hardest of all known natural substances, with 100 years in the making of its formation. Diamond, although highest on the scale of hardness (rated 10 on the Mohs scale), is not as tough as some gems because of its good cleavage. Cleavage is the tendency of a diamond to split in certain directions where the carbon atoms are furthest apart. That is why diamonds’ toughness is characterized as good, not excellent. Specialists advise to keep jewels with gems or loose diamonds apart to avoid scratching and not to wear any stone-jewelry when doing hard housework.

Unmounted Diamonds – Lower Prices

By buying a loose diamond, you can pay much lower prices than buying it ready made into a ring.We can also supply a ring mount of your own choice and design, or you can have your diamond mounted by you own favourite jeweler.

Why Isn’t Every Diamond Certified?

Diamond grading laboratories charge fees for their work, so its only worth paying for larger or better diamonds to be certificated. The extra cost needs to be weighed against the fact that the diamond should be easier to sell. Also many customers prefer to see a complete ring rather than a selection of loose diamonds. There is however a far more practical reason why most jewellers are reluctant to get involved in promoting graded diamonds, they need to protect their profits margins, and certificated diamonds would make it easier to shop around.

Matching Diamonds – Buying Two or More Diamonds

colorcomp4If you need to buy a number of matching stones, any quantity from two upwards, it is not quite as simple as shopping round for a single diamond.It now becomes quite important to ensure that the dimensions of the stones match, and that they match in other respects such as colour, clarity and cut. Two diamonds which have the same grade on paper may not match each other in real life. In this case it may be best to revert to buying your ring complete, perhaps having it made for you by special order to your own requirements. There is then nothing to stop you having the stones graded before they are set, to ensure that you are getting what you pay for. This approach would be worth using if the piece of jewelry you wanted was of particularly high quality or used particularly large diamonds. Obviously we can help you with this project as we are experienced at dealing in diamonds both loose and ready mounted into rings.

Fluorescence

This characteristic of a diamond causes a slight blue glow when the stone is exposed to intense, direct ultraviolet light. This type of light can typically be found in nightclubs. A small amount of ultraviolet light comes directly from the Sun. There are differing opinions on fluorescence and whether to avoid it or not. We believe it comes down to a matter of personal taste and does not affect the value of the diamond.

Clarity

Diamond clarity is a quality of diamonds relating to the existence and visual appearance of internal characteristics of a diamond called inclusions, and surface defects called blemishes. Clarity is one of the four Cs of diamond grading, the others being carat, color, and cut.

A clarity grade is assigned based on the overall appearance of the stone under 10x magnification. Diamonds with higher clarity grades are more valued, with the exceedingly rare “flawless” graded diamond fetching the highest price. Minor inclusions or blemishes are useful, as they can be used as unique identifying marks analogous to fingerprints. In addition, as synthetic diamond technology improves and distinguishing between natural and synthetic diamonds becomes more difficult, inclusions or blemishes can be used as proof of natural origin. Clarity is one of the characteristics that are applied when discussing the quality of a diamond. While Fl (flawless) is the best on the grading scale, they are extremely rare. Similar to a naturally grown diamond, a lab grown crystal may have inclusions, because an absolutely pure diamond without any defects is mostly a theoretical concept rather than natural phenomena. Cultivated diamonds grown in the Labs of New Age Diamonds are graded (on average) between I, SI and VS scale. I – Included: contain some inclusions that can be seen by the naked eye but they are so small and tiny that it can be easily hidden in finished jewellery. The cost of such stones is traditionally much lower, which still makes them very appealing SI – Slightly included: contain some small inclusions that are slightly more noticeable under 10x magnification but still can’t affect brilliance and transparency of the stone. VS – Very Slightly Included. Inclusions or flaws are hardly seen fewer than 10x magnification loop.

Carat

A carat is a unit of weight for diamonds and other gems. The metric carat of .200 grams, or 200 milligrams was adopted in the United States in 1913 and now standardized in the principle countries of the world.

If other factors are equal, the more a stone weighs, the more valuable it will be. Gemological laboratories measure carat weight when the diamond is loose (unmounted). While it is possible to estimate the weight of a mounted diamond, the lab uses ultra sensitive scales to achieve an exact weight, measured 3 decimal places, although the third decimal place is not usually mentioned at the retail level. Here are several ways to express 1 carat:
  • 1 ct.
  • 200 milligrams
  • 1/5 gram
  • 100 points
  • 4 grainer (not often used in retail environment)
  Cut

Diamond cutting is the art, skill and increasingly, science of changing a diamond from a rough stone into a faceted gem. Diamond cutting requires specialized knowledge, tools, equipment and technique because of its extreme hardness.

‘Cut’ has two meanings in relation to diamonds. The first is the shape: round, oval and so on. The second relates to the specific quality pf cut within the shape, and the quality and price will vary greatly based on the cut quality. Since diamonds are very hard to cut, special diamond bladed edges are used to cut them.

Loose Cut Diamond Prices

Loose cut diamond prices can vary, depending on the quality of the cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. If you are shopping for certified loose diamonds, and are not quite sure what you should be looking for, you might want to do a bit of research yourself before you buy. There are some things you should look for in a diamond that will determine the price of that diamond.

For instance, two GIA certified diamonds that are of the same carat weight can have varying degrees of color and clarity. Let’s say a jeweler put two, one-carat round cut diamonds in front of you to view. One diamond would cost you approximately $6500.00, while the other one was about $4300.00. You would be able to see for yourself that the higher priced stone is more brilliant, with much more sparkle and shine. The reason is simple; the cut, color, and clarity of a diamond increase in quality with the higher the price; these are just some of the factors that our specialists can help you evaluate when you’re shopping for that perfect loose cut diamond.

Understanding Loose Cut Diamond Prices

Consumers are often wrongly led to believe that they should buy the biggest diamond they can afford. Little mention is given to the other physical characteristics, such as cut, color, and clarity. However, two similar diamonds can have the same carat weight, but one can be considerably better in terms of quality than the other. Likewise, a smaller diamond can cost more than a bigger diamond if it has little or no internal flaws.

Djewels offers educational information on loose cut diamond prices, as well as other important facts about diamonds. As a leader in the diamond business for over 20 years, we offer our clients exceptional customer service, and high-quality stunning loose diamonds and diamond jewelry. Rest assured that one can never know too much about diamonds and precious stones, but our specialists know more than enough to help you make the right decision.

Density

Specific gravity is the density of a substance divided by the density of water. Since water has a density of 1 gram/cm3, and since all of the units cancel, specific gravity is the same number as density but without any units.

Density measures how tight the atoms are “packed” together (it results from the proportion of mass and volume). Diamond’s specific gravity is 3.52. Poorly colored or heavily included single crystals are used for industrial purposes. Beauty lays in the uniqueness of each stone and in their “inner fire” – the structure reaching perfection captures and releases light in a fascinating manner. Each diamond is endowed with its own personality and character and this is what makes it a precious, cherished gift.

Certified Diamonds -Know What You Are Buying

When you buy a diamond ring from most jewelers, how do you know what quality of diamond you are getting, or even if its weight is correct? When you buy a diamond which has been graded and certified by an independent laboratory, you can be reasonably sure about the quality you are getting.

Prior to certified loose diamonds, diamond purchases were a matter of trust between the jeweler and the buyer. Back then a lucky diamond buyer would be given a diamond loupe to examine the diamond for a few seconds. Since very few people are experts in diamond grading, certified loose diamonds offer peace of mind knowing the exact quality of your diamond. Once the quality of the loose diamond has been established, it’ much easier to shop for a diamond engagement ring.

Unmounted Diamonds – Lower Prices

By buying a loose diamond, you can pay much lower prices than buying it ready made into a ring.We can also supply a ring mount of your own choice and design, or you can have your diamond mounted by you own favorite jewelery.

Reputable Loose Diamond Wholesalers

With globalization and the huge Internet boom, it is easy to see why so many businesses are taking their marketing to the Worldwide Web. When you conduct business on the Internet, you simply can reach a much larger audience. Loose diamond wholesalers are no different from other businesses, in that they realize the potential to reach millions of consumers by marketing their product through specialized websites. However, when you make purchases through the Internet, you really must proceed forward with caution to make sure you are protected.

Djewels is one of the most trusted loose diamond wholesalers on the Worldwide Web today. They make sure that your payment information is kept confidential by using a very secure server. In addition, they supply their buyers with certification papers from reputable laboratories, which inspect diamonds and give them a grade. Furthermore, you can take home your diamond for a full 30 days to see if it’s all you had hoped it would be. If it’s not, you can simply return it to Djewels with all the original paperwork.

Certified Loose Diamonds

Traditionally, only jewelers purchased certified loose diamonds from suppliers that sold diamonds and other precious stones. However, it is becoming more common for consumers to purchase wholesale loose diamonds directly from the supplier, and have them made into rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. This can be a different approach to take if you want to design a piece of jewelry that stands out from everything you’ve seen in retail jewelry stores.

Certified loose diamonds come in many shapes, cuts, carats, and colors, which means that you have a lot more to think about than just choosing a diamond. Of course, it all depends on your taste, as well as the type of jewelry you are going to create with the diamond(s). For instance, if you were planning on purchasing several round cut diamonds to make into an anniversary band, you would want to match the color of each diamond. In contrast, if you were interested in a solitaire anniversary band, this would not be a consideration.

Consider Price When You Purchase Certified Loose Diamonds

Remember, all diamonds are not created equal. You can look at two round cut, one-carat diamond solitaires, and see two completely different things. Maybe one cost considerably less than the other, but you will more than likely notice a lack of brilliance and sparkle in the cheaper diamond. Don’t be fooled into the thinking that the bigger the diamond is, the better it is.

Diamonds on Web is an established supplier of top-quality diamonds with over 20 years of industry experience. We can offer you a wide selection of certified loose diamonds that vary in cut, color, carat, and clarity, at a price that can fit your budget. We have expert gemologists ready to assist you, and we would be more than happy to share our knowledge with you if you are in the market for a loose diamond or finished diamond jewelry.
