Flawless Diamond - Pure Perfection - D Flawless A CUT ABOVE®
By Bryan Boyne (g.g.)
Diamonds are rare. A flawless diamond is exceptionally rare. A flawless diamond that is perfectly colorless is phenomenally rare. How rare does that make diamonds that are perfect in color, clarity and also in cut?
D color (perfectly colorless) IF (internally flawless) diamonds are estimated to represent a miniscule .001% of world diamond production. Because diamond prices are based upon rarity, the price premium for perfect color and clarity is substantial.
This market reality makes buyers for D IF diamonds extremely rare as well! It is particularly true when you consider that diamonds just a few grades lower in color and/or clarity can be equally beautiful and available for a significantly lower price. There is clearly an emotional component at play where D IF diamonds are concerned. These elite gems are purchased by people who want the very, very best - despite the premium cost.
So, does it make sense to buy a perfect diamond without the perfect cut? Why would customers for D IF diamonds not insist on the very best cutting, especially since cut quality is the key to light performance, sparkle, brilliance and fire?
