Buying a diamond is a new experience for most people, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. The Dana Walden diamond standard is HSI2, which we believe represents the best combination of sparkle, beauty and value. If you have a specific diamond quality in mind, we'd be happy to source the perfect stone for you. Just send a request to: email@example.com
H Color, SI2 Clarity - Near colorless diamond with slight inclusions. This option is an excellent value; it will exhibit a warmth or tone that is virtually undetectable to the naked eye. The inclusions are very slight and cannot be spotted with the naked eye, if carefully selected by a professional.
The Four C's
Cut - The cut of a diamond is perhaps the most important characteristic, as it is directly related to the brilliance and overall beauty of the stone. In other words, the better a diamond is cut, the more sparkle it will have. Both of our diamond options feature a "Very Good" cut and polish, which means they reflect the top 15% of diamond quality based on cut.
Color - After cut, color is the second most important characteristic when selecting a diamond. Color refers to the lack of color within a diamond. Simply put, diamonds that are white (containing little or no color) are perceived to be of higher quality than diamonds with color. Color is graded on a scale from D-Z and the finest diamonds fall withing the near colorless D-J range.
Clarity - Almost all diamonds have tiny imperfections, which are perceived by experts to have the least impact on a diamond's beauty. When these imperfections are microscopic and cannot be seen the by the unaided eye, they will not affect the beauty of a diamond in a discernible way. All of our diamonds feature an SI2 clarity grade, which means that your diamond will exhibit slight imperfections that are not visible to the unaided eye.
Carat - Carat refers to a diamond's weight. Our collection features a variety of styles, each one being specially calibrated to fit a diamond of a specific size. This ensures that each ring is crafted with uncompromising design integrity and balanced composition.
The Fifth "C" - Conflict-free
We've added a 5th "C" to our diamond characteristics: Conflict-free. This means that Dana Walden diamonds are Kimberly Process compliant. The Kimberley Process is a certification system that prohibits the trading of diamonds from war-torn regions. This system helps to ensure that the diamond you purchase comes from a supply chain that is not linked to war and human rights violations.
