Our Diamond Education Goes Beyond the Basics

Believe it or not, a simple 30-minute investment in our diamond education tutorials will teach you more about the subject than most jewelry salespeople know.

An Inconvenient Truth

Diamonds are not always what they seem. Though there are rules for color, clarity and cut, these are often broken by unscrupulous labs and sellers. By definition, most diamonds cannot be counted in the top 10%. So how is it that every seller can claim to have “the best”? They use soft grading.

Soft Grading

Diamonds are often sent to “soft” labs, which will give them higher color and clarity grades than they deserve. Many chain stores and mainstream sellers employ this practice. As a result, buyers don’t always know that they’re paying good money for low quality diamonds.

High Performance Education

The purpose of our Diamond Education videos is to help buyers understand the difference between soft and strict grading. We’ll teach you what you need to know in order to get past the hype and recognize true cut performance and precision..

Buzzwords

Sellers use labels like “Ideal” or “Signature” as buzzwords to attract shoppers. Because soft grading is so common, these terms no longer have much meaning unless you know how to determine if a diamond lives up to its label.

Tutorials

Our Cut, Carat, Color and Clarity tutorials show how common grading varies between AGS and GIA standards, how diamonds with above-average cut quality improve in appearance, and how our own High Performance Diamonds break the rules – in a positive way.

Our Performance Tutorial shows how to measure overall light return, brightness and contrast in diamonds. You will be introduced to the world’s only scientifically adopted system for grading cut performance, the American Gem Society ASETĀ® and its precursor, the Ideal-ScopeĀ®.

Our Precision Tutorial shows how to determine optical symmetry (aka “Hearts & Arrows” in round diamonds), which can improve contrast, dispersion and scintillation in top-level diamonds.

At High Performance Diamonds, we are dedicated to the top 1% of quality-cut diamonds. We have over 50 years of combined experience, and have sampled and sold nearly every “superideal” brand in the world. Our expertise also extends to name-brand designer settings, colored gemstones and projects both simple and complex. However, our primary obsession is with the world’s most precisely cut and high-performing diamonds.
