If you have questions or would like assistance in your selection from an experienced GIA diamond grading graduate, call: 1-877-968-7342.
This is the best cut grade assigned by GIA (to Round shapes only) producing the maximum sparkle in a diamond. An excellent (or AGS Ideal) cut diamond has optimal proportions as determined by GIA and thus reflects the maximum light producing the greatest brilliance and scintillation.
No color is visible to an untrained eye in an F-color diamond. It is difficult to distinguish F-color diamond from D or E colors especially once mounted and it is the least expensive diamond color in the colorless range.
The inclusions in this Slightly Included diamond can be visible at 10x power magnification. SI1 characteristics usually are not visible to the unaided eye face-up. SI1 grade diamonds are not as rare as VS and VVS grade diamonds, hence they are less expensive and offer a great value.
