How to Pick a Diamond
The ideal Bucci Diamond:
A color from D-I, a good cut, very good to excellent polish/symmetry, a fluorescence of none, and clarity in the SI range or above.
All Bucci mountings are GVS quality and handmade by our designers.
Diamonds can be cut in various shapes
The color is the FIRST thing that you see when you look at a diamond. You want it to be as white as possible.
A Bucci diamond starts at D and stops at I color.
Cut / Make
The cut or make of a diamond is VERY important. If your diamond is too shallow, the sunlight will escape out of the bottom. If your diamond is too deep, it will escape out of the side. A Bucci diamond is always premium to ideal cut. Imagine standing in a room that has mirrors on all four walls and shining a flashlight into the mirror. The light will bounce off of each wall. The same goes with a Bucci cut diamond, when the sunlight hits it, it will pop back at you. That is a guarantee.
Polish & Symmetry and Fluorescence
Our diamonds are always between good and excellent. A good example would be when you get your car detailed and it comes back shiny and squeaky clean. The same thing happens when you get your diamond polished; only a Bucci diamond will stay shiny. As far as Fluorescence goes, we stay as close to none as possible. A strong fluorescence will appear flat and will have a purple glow under ultra violet light.
I pick every diamond as if I were picking it for myself. I am very particular, as you will soon see. We only sell SI2 and above. If you buy a good SI1 or SI2, it will be very hard to see any flaws. We do not sell diamonds that have carbon in them; they are all carbon free. A diamond with carbon looks like a dot from the top, and from the side it spreads throughout. Your fiance will always be able to see it.
