Some people want to buy the biggest diamond possible. Is this always the right choice? We feel that it's always a matter of preference, but here's something to think about:
The larger the diamond, chances are the more inclusions it likely has, and because it's larger, these inclusions are typically even more visible than on a smaller diamond. But most importantly, if the diamond cut isn't proportioned correctly, it won't return the maximum amount of light through the top of the diamond.
This illustrates that no matter how large the diamond, its cut and proportions determine how brilliant the diamond really is.
Since diamond colors range from colorless to yellowish-brown, sometimes these colors can add warmth or depth to your diamond. Also, by mounting a non-colorless diamond in yellow gold can make the diamond appear colorless in some cases.
