These 360 degree diamond videos from Blue Nile provide fantastic perspective. However, it’s important to remember that there is more to buying a diamond than just how it sparkles on video. The reason I chose this 1.00 carat, G-color, VS-2 clarity, Blue Nile Signature diamond is because it rocks! It meets my selection criteria and the reality is that not all Blue Nile Signature diamonds meet my standards. That statement is true of every brand of diamond by the way. That’s why it’s important to consider each diamond on it’s own merit, regardless of brand name.
In this particular instance, we can expect the 40.8 degree pavilion angle to produce a high volume of light return. The 35.0 degree crown angle should produce a virtual balance of brilliance and dispersion. The 75% lower girdle facet length should produce sparkle that is larger in size and bolder in appearance. All of that sizzling sparkle clearly in the 360 degree diamond video.
However we both know that appearances can be deceiving, which is why it’s important to look beyond the surface. The fact is that the proportions of a diamond are only one piece of the puzzle. The degree of optical precision exhibited by a diamond is critical to sparkle factor. This is where the images you’ll find on the supplementary GCAL Diamond Grading Report come in. These images enable us to judge the precision of the hearts and arrows pattern exhibited by this diamond.
There are slight variations in the size and shape of the hearts. If you look closely, you’ll be able to see that the tips of some of the hearts bend ever-so-slightly. Now understand that the hearts pattern is never going to be perfect, what we’re judging are shades of perfection. This will be a spectacular looking diamond!
