  • 1/6ct (0.13 to 0.18 carat)
  • 1/5ct (0.17 to 0.23 carat)
  • 1/4ct (0.21 to 0.28 carat)
  • 1/3ct (0.28 to 0.36 carat)

    Diamond Color
    White diamonds range from colorless (D) to yellow (Z). Here at Diamond-Me, we do our best to use only J color or higher goods to ensure our customers are happy with their purchase. The diamond color of each diamond product on our website is indicated in the product breakdown.

  • D to F: Colorless
  • G to J: Near Colorless
  • K to M: Slightly Tinted
  • N to R: Very Light Yellow
  • S to Z: Light Yellow to Yellow   

     

    Diamond Clarity
    Diamond clarity can range from internally flawless (IF) to included (I). The clarity you will find here at Diamond-Me usually starts at I1 up to VS or higher. If you are looking at a certain jewelry piece from us and would like to upgrade the clarity, please feel free to email us at service@diamond-me.com for a free quote. All our products are manufactured by us, meaning we can customize almost any item in our catalog to your liking. It is also helpful to keep in mind that one jump in clarity can be a big jump in price depending on the size of the diamond.

  • Internally Flawless (IF): Free from internal blemishes visible under 10x magnification
  • Very Very Slightly Included (VVS): Inclusions and/or external blemishes very difficult to locate under 10x magnification
  • Very Slightly Included (VS): Inclusions and external blemishes difficult to locate under 10x magnification
  • Slightly Included (SI): Inclusions and external blemishes easy to locate under 10x magnification but not obvious to the naked eye
  • Included (I): Medium or large inclusions on external blemishes which are usually obvious to the naked eye under favorable lighting conditions

     

    Choosing the Right Ring
    As larger diamonds are rarer, an increase in size may affect the price tremendously. The same can be said for the diamond quality. The difference between an I clarity stone and an SI is big and the difference between an SI to VS is huge. It is generally recommended that for diamonds 3/4 carat weight and under to choose in favor of color over clarity and for diamond greater than 3/4 carat to choose clarity over color. If you cannot find your ideal color/clarity on a product found on our website, simply send us an email at service@diamond-me.com and we get back to you within 1-2 business days.

    It is also helpful to note that most ring photos on our website are shot with size 5 rings. For larger finger sizes the metal to diamond ratio increases to accommodate the larger size, but the actual diamond carat weight remains the same for all sizes. Because of this, a 1/2 carat diamond may look larger on a size 4 finger than a size 9.
