The Forever Star-dusty Diamond

A beautiful diamond video, disappointingly dusty. – gr

A Great Gem Deserves a Great Shot

To get a great shot, you need to place the jewel in the right position. The lights should land on the jewel exactly how you plan. And the jewel must be clean.

Cleaning the jewel takes time and patience. Every little speck of dust needs to be either wiped off with a gem cloth, or a brush. (No, canned air will simply blow the dust around and may make matters worse.)

Dust is always falling, so it’s imperative that you keep your studio clean. Your stage can be covered, which does help.

So why are we talking about dust? Because even the professionals show their impatience. Look carefully at this image of an internally flawless diamond. Do you see all of the tiny white specks everywhere? Look especially around the prong at 5:00. All of those tiny white dots are dust particles. If you are trying to show an internally flawless diamond, then this should be removed, cleaned off.

The following is a video, featuring the Forever Star (above), a 15.02 carat D Internally Flawless round brilliant. The video shows so many visible tiny white dots all over the diamond that you might not believe it is internally flawless. It is… that’s all dust.

“Sotheby’s Sealed is pleased to offer Forever Star, an exceptional De Beers Forevermark 15.02 Carat D Colour Internally Flawless brilliant-cut diamond mounted in 18 karat white gold. Of all the world’s diamonds, less than one percent are said to be eligible to become De Beers Forevermark. The dazzling brilliant-cut internally flawless D colour diamond, mounted in 18 karat white gold, is a rare and timeless jewel.” Follow Roskin Gem News Report for More Updates

It would be even more impressive if it were clean. Just sayin… – gr
