Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2015
According to an article published July 17th on Resource Clips, a recently discovered diamond find in Canada’s Northern Territories is just the latest boon for the Canadian diamond industry. While Canadian diamonds may not have the longstanding reputation that diamonds from other, more traditional diamond producing countries may have, the industry has boomed in the last several decades as consumers begin to more and more appreciate the fact that these diamonds are conflict-free. According to Louis Saint Dupont Jewelry, many of the best conflict free diamond jewelry pieces sold in the United States use high quality Canadian diamonds in pieces that are made with care in the U.S. The conflict free diamonds used by Louis Saint Dupont also have the benefit of having the certification of the Gemological Institute of America. The jeweler explains that there are several qualities measured in the GIA report that help shoppers know that they are getting a quality diamond, for the right price. While many buyers are willing to pay a small increase in price for diamonds that a verified to be conflict free, these diamonds still need to meet high standards for certain criteria involving quality. Some of these criteria include:
1. Clarity – Typically, notes Louis Saint Dupont, the setting of a ring can cover one surface of the diamond, making it difficult to see all the way through the diamond and judge the clarity. Luckily, the GIA report examines the diamond on its own so they can take an objective look at the clarity before it is put up against any of the metals in the setting.
2. Carat Weight – While the weight of the diamond can be reasonably approximated just by looking at the size, the intricacies of different cuts may make a diamond look larger than it is, notes Louis Saint Dupont. Because the GIA report comes with an accurate measurement down to a hundredth of a carat, shoppers can be sure that what they perceive is actually what they are getting.
3. Symmetry – The symmetry of the cut can have a big influence on the value of the diamond, so the GIA report can insure that buyers are not overpaying for a piece. This is yet another benefit of the GIA report that makes it so shoppers do not need expertise in diamond quality to get a quality diamond.
