Tips to buy and the classification of Class I and Class II diamonds


An uncut diamond, as it is found in nature, is called “rough.” As a rule of thumb, it takes a 3 carat rough to produce a good quality one-carat cut stone. Often, poorly proportioned diamonds are the result of a diamond cutter trying to make a one-carat stone from a two-carat rough. A buying tip, a fancy-shaped diamond is more difficult to cut and more valuable than a round diamond. Actually, it is a fact that a fancy-shaped diamond is no more difficult to cut than a round diamond, and a round diamond is generally the most expensive shape simply because of diamond. 65% of all diamonds sold are round. The emerald cut can be the least expensive because its shape is most like the natural shape of the rough – the uncut diamond.

Diamonds have been treasured throughout history for their special qualities, but for most of that time they have been very rare, and available only to the super-rich. Not until after the discovery of large diamond deposits in South Africa around 1865 did diamonds become plentiful enough to be affordable to people of more modest means. In fact, now diamonds are not rare at all. The market for diamonds is carefully controlled by the big diamond cartels to keep prices artificially high.

The GIA classes of cuts – The super cuts from American ideal, this is just another way of saying class 1 cut diamond. The terms go hand in hand. If you approach a jeweler and say to him, “I’d like a Class 1 cut diamond,” and he shrugs, you can say, “Hey, I am talking an ideal diamond,” If he still shrugs, he’s an idiot, but more than likely, he’ll go, “Oh, good proportions, I got ya.” Now please keep something in mind, all “Ideal” cut diamonds are well cut, but not all well-cut diamonds are “Ideal.” For a diamond to be well-cut, it must be Class 1 or Class 11. For a diamond to be “Ideal,” it must be Class 1.

Hearts on Fire – Hearts on Fire is a brand name for a type of cut diamond marketed by the company Di-Star Ltd. out of Boston. The contention is if you cut the diamond to “Ideal” proportions, turn it upside down, and shoot a blue light through it, heart shaped pattern will be visible through the pavilion, proving it is a well-cut diamond. Big deal! This is just a marketing ploy.

No matter what language you use, A.G.S.O. Class 1, “Ideal” make, Hearts of Fire, it just comes down to one thing, is it well-proportion or not? I call all these cuts “Super Cuts” because they are perfection personified in cutting a diamond. But with their average 15 percent to 20 percent price premium for an increase in brilliance and dispersion of less than 4 percent, I would stick with a Class 11 and save the money.
