Some Considerations

Ummm. I am drawing a blank here trying to think of anything even slightly negative. Ritani is simply outstanding in every respect. I guess the same applies here as with the majority of other online diamond jewelers. The quality ranges from low to extremely high and it’s up to you to choose the quality of cut. If you’re not sure just ask. Ritani will help you make the best choice for your needs.

Special Mention: Ritani Reserve

Ritani Reserve diamonds are unique in that they have passed stringent grading criteria for both cut and sparkle. Each Ritani Reserve diamond is issued two separate diamond certificates: one describes how the diamond embodies the proportions that produce the most sparkle, and the second documents how the diamond produces the most intense sparkle, shown in patterns of flash and fire.

These diamonds have been graded by either the American Gem Society Laboratories (AGSL) or the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and have received the finest cut-grade available. This guarantees they are cut to maximize beauty and will look gorgeous when viewed in a ring.

Each diamond has also received an AGSL Scintillation Report which uses proprietary AGSL technology to analyze the science behind the artistry of each diamond. The Scintillation Report shows the amount of sparkle — measured by the intensity of the flash (white light) and fire (colored light) each diamond produces — revealing that these diamonds produce the most sparkle of any diamond available.
