The Diamond Experience

 

 

Diamonds have been bearers of magic, passion, and success through the centuries. These fascinating stones are a promise of eternity. A deep romantic mystery lies within the heart of every stone.


In ancient times, diamonds were thought to have mysterious qualities and possess supernatural powers. Many myths and legends have surrounded diamonds. Many such famous legends of love, from yesterday and today, are bound closely to the beauty of the diamond.


Since our founding at the beginning of the 1900's, we have always strived for perfection and our attention to detail has set us at the top of the diamond industry. Today we still continue by selecting the finest diamonds and the best jewelry pieces. Therefore bringing a piece of the diamond's fascinating legend to our customers. It is believed that one never really chooses the diamond, but the diamond chooses them.

 

 

 

The Diamond’s 4 C's

 

 

The largely adopted standards for classification of a diamond by the industry are known as the 4Cs: Cut, Clarity, Color and Carat. To further refine this definition, a new evaluation process has been introduced called “Brilliance”. This will help to further describe the quality of a diamond. 

 

 

 

Diamond's Cut


The term "cut" refers to the facets and their proportions on the surface of a diamond.

 

At Mazal, we specifically set the precise proportions of every diamond we offer. Our craftsmen operate within very strict guidelines and exact relationships between the table, the crown, the pavilion and the girdle of every stone. Cut and brilliance at Mazal Diamond are a priority above the raw weight of a rough diamond.

 

Mazal's diamonds are always excellent cut diamonds. They are cut to enhance the natural beauty which is lying within every stone. Carat weight is, wrongly thought by many, to be the most important factor about the value of a diamond.

 

Some diamond cutters will leave an excessively thick girdle around the stone in hopes of increasing the diamond’s carat weight. This practice harms the stone by considerably impairing the diamond’s beauty and brilliance. Our strict standards insist that we sacrifice more of the rough diamond than cutter would normally.

 

Diamond Shape

DIAMOND SHAPE
Cut shouldn’t be confused with "shape." Shape refers to the general outward appearance of the diamond, such as round, emerald, pear, etc.


 

 

 

 

 

Diamond's Clarity


A diamond’s clarity rating is the key measure of its overall quality.

 

Alas, nature guarantees that almost all diamonds have inherent natural blemishes called “inclusions.” Often, these clarity shortcomings are invisible to the untrained eye. However, these same imperfections can be immediately apparent to professional gemologists.

 

A stone is said to be flawless if, under magnification, no inclusions like “clouds,” “pinpoints,” or "internal crystals"; no internal flaws, sometimes referred to as “feathers;” and no external imperfections, such as scratches, burns or abrasions, are visible.

 

 

Diamond's Color

 
 

The absence of any color is very rare as most diamonds contain tiny amounts of nitrogen.

 

 

The untrained eye may not be able to detect these minute variations of color, but these distinctions affect the rarity and ultimately the value of a diamond.

 
 

Diamonds are compared to "The Ideal Master" diamond. Color is then rated according to a precise scale, running from “D” (colorless) to “Z” (saturated). Past “Z” a diamond’s color is considered “fancy”. Fancy colored diamonds are very valuable and, correspondingly, are graded by very different parameters.

 

 

 

Diamond's Carat


A carat is equivalent to .2 grams (1/5 ratio) and is the unit of measure for diamonds.

 

The value of a diamond increases in an exponential manner. A two-carat diamond for example will be worth more than two times a one-carat diamond of the same quality. Larger diamonds of high quality are extremely rare and are valued to reflect that rarity.

 

 

 


Diamond's Brilliance



All diamonds must demonstrate "Fire, Life, and Brilliance". The "Fire" is the magnificent rainbow effect from the refraction of the light.

 

The "Life" is the flash and sparkle produced by the movement of the diamond. The "Brilliance" is the reflection of white light when the diamond is at rest. The "Fire, Life, and Brilliance" of a Mazal diamond comes from its symmetry, sparkle, and refraction.
