Nature creates diamonds. Over millennia, under extreme pressure, they form. In this alchemy, three of their characteristics are made: Color, Clarity and Carat. These aspects dictate a diamond's rarity and value. Only one aspect of a diamond's beauty is determined by man — how well it is cut.
Cut is the key factor in revealing a diamond's individual brilliance, fire and beauty. This is where Zales expertise and exacting standards become critically important. Cut well and a diamond explodes with light. Cut poorly and its beauty is lost. So why aren't all diamonds cut to exacting standards?
When a diamond is cut, up to half the original stone weight, or carat size, is lost. And carat size affects price. So every diamond manufacturer is faced with a choice — do you cut to maximize carat weight or maximize beauty? There is no question at Zales.
Every diamond in the Zales Celebration Diamond Collection is cut to exacting standards — to maximize brilliance and beauty, not to preserve weight or bump up the price. Every Zales diamond is so expertly cut, it's guaranteed for life.* What nature took so long in making, we take great pride in celebrating. Zales. The Diamond Store.®
Celebration Diamonds are individually certified and detailed on their own personal certification card. This card is the diamond’s birth certificate, identifying all the qualities that make it unique. The card also contains important light performance rating information that is performed on the diamond by a gem grading company.
Each Celebration Diamond in this exclusive collection larger than 1/7 carat receives a unique certification number, and the name of the collection is laser-inscribed on the girdle of the diamond for extra security. This number also appears on the diamond certification card.
Only the diamonds that meet our exacting standards will receive the Celebration logo engraving on the inside of the ring.
