“You recently helped a friend of mine select a Crafted by Infinity diamond for an engagement ring. It is the most amazing diamond that we’ve ever seen! The diamond is so brilliant and sparkly, that all our friends are blown away. Needless to say, my girlfriend is in love with it. She wants a Crafted by Infinity diamond of her own. Which is a relief of sorts, because now I know exactly what type of diamond to buy her. However, there are five Crafted by Infinity diamonds that seem to meet your selection criteria. They all have similar characteristics and I just don’t know which option to choose. Can you help me pick the best Crafted by Infinity diamond from High Performance Diamonds?”
Crafted by Infinity is one of my favorite producers of hearts and arrows diamonds! They used to produce diamonds for our in-store private label. As you might imagine, I’ve personally evaluated thousands of Crafted by Infinity diamonds. Every one of them exhibits the most incredible sparkle you’ve ever seen!
It goes without saying that the secret to light performance is combining the right proportions with optical precision. And yet, the majority of diamond cutters fail miserably in this department. That’s because most diamond cutters focus on yield of carat weight instead of visual performance. Thus the vast majority of diamonds that you see will fail to impress you, because the cutter was aiming at the wrong goal. On the other hand, Crafted by Infinity diamonds look amazing in every type of lighting.
That’s because every one of them is cut to deliver maximum light performance. Every piece of diamond rough, is evaluated using state-of-the-art technology. So that Paul and his team can maximize light performance. That’s a fancy way of saying your Crafted by Infinity diamond will sparkle like crazy!
Which is why it really doesn’t matter which Crafted by Infinity diamond you choose. They all look amazing! But let’s take a look at the 5 diamonds you are considering:
Well, no wonder you’re having so much trouble deciding which Crafted by Infinity diamond to buy! You’re basically trying to choose from a set of quintuplets! All five of these Crafted by Infinity diamonds are H-color and VS-1 in clarity. Not only that, but they’re also pretty similar in terms of carat weight and price.
Now I see the severity of the dilemma which you are facing. I can see why this might seem like a pretty tough choice, but the reality is that you can’t possibly lose:
In light of the fact that all 5 of these Crafted by Infinity diamonds are essentially the same, I’d buy the largest one! Because the reality is that size is the only way you’re ever going to tell them apart. The reality is that if you were to line them all up in a row, they’re going to look exactly the same.
With exception of a very slight difference in size. Since the light performance and sparkle factor is the same for all intent and purposes, size is the only real difference. Even then, the difference between 1.54 and 1.62 carats is very slight in real world terms. You’re basically talking about the difference between 7.47 and 7.56 millimeters of visible diameter.
I would buy the larger Crafted by Infinity diamond, because size does matter. I know that we like to believe that it doesn’t, but it absolutely does (when it comes to diamonds). If size didn’t matter, then Diamond Shrinkage Syndrome wouldn’t be a global pandemic.
Do me a favor? When you buy your Crafted by Infinity diamond from Wink at High Performance Diamonds, tell him that Todd from Nice Ice says hello. He’s also one of my favorite people in the whole world! We’ve known each other for longer than I can remember! He’s one of those rock solid, salt of the earth type guys that you’re going to love working with.
By the way, you didn’t say anything about what ring style your girlfriend wants. But Wink has one heck of a jewelry design team! Take a look at the custom halo setting featured at the top of the page! They just created that ring for another one of my clients! She’s absolutely over the moon with joy!
