Diamond Handbook


English Language: English

Author: Renee Newman


Packed with close-up photos, this new full-color guide shows you how to judge diamonds on the basis of how they look, rather than just on how theyre graded. The Diamond Handbook is a comprehensive guide to evaluating and identifying diamonds, which is aimed at trade professionals, gemology students, serious diamond buyers, and people who want more diamond evaluation information than they can get on the Internet. Besides providing in-depth information on diamond grading, it compares the new cut grading systems and diamond light performance reports of various gem laboratories. It also discusses and illustrates new diamond treatments and lab-grown diamonds. An entire chapter is devoted to the recutting of diamonds, and another chapter covers the history of diamond cuts and illustrates antique and estate diamond jewelry styles. The first chapter gives a brief overview of diamond formation, sources, diamond properties, lighting and diamond examination techniques. Chapters on fancy-colored diamonds, fluorescence, branded diamonds and diamond grading reports are also included.
