When we look for diamonds for our pieces they have to have a top quality cut. As a cutter it's easier for me to choose the cut of a diamond over the cut of a colored gem stone. The diamond cutters spend a lot of time to make sure the stone has the best cut possible which will in turn command a top price. I don't get a lot of colored diamonds but every once in a while a special stone comes along that you just can't pass up. This Green diamond is a beauty.
