Porana uses only natural diamonds F-G color, VVS-VS quality, conflict free
The diamond cut is the most important element to consider when buying a diamond. The cut is the biggest factor in creating sparkle and fire, and without a high cut grade even a diamond of high quality can appear dull and lifeless. A diamond cut poorly and too deep can face-up smaller than it actually is. We are hand selected by experience gemologist every piece of diamond to ensure superb cut for your jewelry.
Diamond color is the second most important thing to consider when purchasing a diamond, right after a diamond's cut. Color is the first thing the eye notices after sparkle, and less is more in this case: the less color a diamond has, the higher the diamond color grade. Porana offers only Colorless to Near-Colorless (grade F-G) diamonds to assure that any natural color present is typically undetectable to the naked eye.
The clarity of diamonds refers to an assessment of small surface characteristics called blemishes and/or internal characteristics called inclusions.
Most diamonds have tiny imperfections called inclusions.
The fewer and less visible the inclusions, the higher the clarity grade.
Diamond clarity is often the least important of the 4Cs because most inclusions are microscopic; they don’t affect the diamond’s beauty in a visible way.
To maximize your budget, consider an "Eye-Clean" diamond, graded VS1 or higher, in which inclusions are invisible to the naked eye.
Diamond Carat Weight
Carat refers exclusively to the weight, not size, of the diamond.
Carat is the most misunderstood of the 4Cs. It actually refers to a diamond's weight, not the diamond’s size.
Consider cut and carat together; a larger carat diamond with a poor cut grade can appear smaller than a smaller diamond with a higher cut grade.
At Porana, we only purchase diamonds through the largest and most respected suppliers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by the Kimberley Process. All Porana diamonds are warranted to be conflict free.
