Halloween is only two days away and we’re feeling the spooky mood. There are many allegedly cursed jewels out there, and the Koh-I-Noor is one of the big ones.  The Koh-I-Noor has moved from India to Afghanistan, back to India, to England. She is wrapped up in political disputes, theft, violence, and intrigue. Today, she is on display at the Tower of London, set in the front of the Crown of Queen Elizabeth.

๐Ÿ’Ž Cut ๐Ÿ’Ž
Grading the cut of a diamond is a complicated process of assessing the angles of cuts on the diamond for craftsmanship and how the facets interface with light. It all boils down to this, a better quality cut equals more sparkle โœจin your diamond.

๐Ÿ’Ž CLARITY ๐Ÿ’Ž
The clarity scale is used to describe internal characteristics (inclusions) and external characteristics (blemishes). During the formation of diamonds, structural variations can occur which result in these characteristics. The scale ranges from Flawless to Included. While inclusions and blemishes can affect the beauty of a diamond it is also important to note that they also tell us a little about how they grew!

๐Ÿ’Ž COLOR ๐Ÿ’Ž
“Color” in a diamond refers to the relative colorlessness of the stone. GIA grades diamonds on a scale from D-Z. D has the least color and Z has an obvious yellowish hue. Here, you can how subtle the difference of seven color grades truly is. While this can be a determining factor in price, the presence of color is not itself a good or bad thing, it just is.

Have you ever looked at your diamond and thought, “Who could’ve thought of such intricacies when cutting a stone?” 
•
Young mathematician Marcel Tolkowsky’s original work on the mathematical formula for maximizing reflection and refraction of light (think: sparkle factor โœจ) of diamonds has been left significantly unchanged in the 100 years since he published his work. Initially intended as a favor for his diamond-dealing uncle, the 19-year-old mathematician went on to write his PHD thesis on this work.
•
Tolkowsky eventually fled to the US from Nazi persecution and became a career diamond dealer. Thanks, Tolkowsky, for making the world much brighter. ๐Ÿ’Ž

This giant beauty is named the Orlov Diamond. It was purchased for Catherine the Great and set into the Russian Imperial Scepter. One legend suggests that it was stolen from the eye of a temple statue in India and is now cursed. One story tells of Napoleon’s invading army being scared away from stealing the diamond by the ghost of a priest.

It doesn’t exactly match today’s level of sparkle, but this is the first documented instance of a diamond ring as an engagement ring. In 1477, Archduke Maximilian of Austria, future Holy Roman Emperor, proposed marriage to Duchess Mary of Burgundy with a diamond ring.

Sometimes talking about color and diamonds can be a little confusing. GIA, the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, created the D-Z color scale to describe the relative appearance of color in colorless diamonds. Diamonds with color beyond the D-Z scale are considered Fancy. Colors such as yellow, pink, blue, and so on, have their own scale to describe intensity and saturation of color.
•
In one of her most well-known roles as Lorelei in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, Marilyn Monroe did not wear any live diamonds. She did, however, wear a Fancy 24.4 carat diamond, the Moon of Baroda, for promotional stills for the film.
•
Other examples of Fancy color diamonds can be found in the third picture of this post.
