Why are diamonds, especially loose diamonds so fascinating? It is a well-known fact that diamonds are forever, and thanks to the discreet advertisement done by De Beers and other companies associated with diamonds, these sparkling stones have been known as a girl’s best friend. That is the reason why every girl who is engaged would like to have the eternal diamond sparkling upon her finger, with an unspoken promise of forever.
Buying that perfect loose diamond is not difficult at all, especially if you know what you need to look for. There are 3 factors which affect the purchase of a diamond, apart from the price of course. These are a diamond’s cut, its clarity as well as its carat weight. These are known as the Three C’s (cut, clarity, carat). Sometimes a fourth C is added for Color, but many times that is combined with clarity.
Cut – The cut of a diamond does not refer to the final shape, but to the proportions of the diamond, which includes the width, the depth, as well as how uniform all the facets are. These are the factors that are going to control the durability, and brilliance of the diamond.
Carat – A diamond is normally weighed in carats, where one carat is equal to 200 mg of the diamond’s actual weight. That is the reason why you need to know more about the carats when you go out to buy loose diamonds, because the number of carats will influence the final price of the diamond.
Clarity – This is how clear the diamond is. The clarity ratings are Flawless, Blemishes or Inclusions and each of these have a letter and number rating based on the clarity of the stone. In order to determine the clarity of loose diamonds, it is necessary to have a jeweler’s loop, preferably a 10x loop as this is what is used to determine the clarity originally.
A jeweler’s “loop”, especially a 10x (where x means multiplied so many times) or loupe is one of the easiest ways in which one can look for tiny flaws which are going to distract from the value of the diamond. The loupe has special lenses placed in it in such a way that there is no distortion or any color problems when one is looking at the diamond.
Some of the flaws that are found in a diamond come in the shape of tiny specks of different materials inside the diamond, cracks, which might be imperceptible, uncolored crystals and blemishes. Jewelers grade the diamonds according to the flaws in them. Some of the flaws can be treated, and that is why it is necessary for you to find out if the loose diamond that you intend to buy has been treated for imperfections.
Don’t confuse clarity of a diamond with the color in a diamond. Loose diamonds can be found in a multitude of colors available when a diamond is treated with irradiation including yellow, brown, purple, green, red and blue.
A loose diamond can be created into a thing of beauty and a joy forever, by turning it into a ring or a pendant. Solitaires are of course a popular choice for ring settings. So, if you are looking for that perfect once-in-a-lifetime kind of ring, go to a reliable place where loose diamonds are set creatively into something memorable, and beautiful.

Torre pendente di Pisa
Image by Rodrigo_Soldon La cosiddetta torre pendente di Pisa (chiamata semplicemente torre pendente o torre di Pisa) è il campanile della Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, nella celeberrima Piazza dei Miracoli di cui è il monumento più famoso per via della caratteristica pendenza. Si tratta di un campanile a sé stante alto circa 56 metri, costruito nell'arco di due secoli, tra il dodicesimo e il quattordicesimo. Pesante 14.453 tonnellate, vi predomina la linea curva, con giri di arcate cieche e sei piani di loggette. La sua pendenza è dovuta ad un cedimento del terreno verificatosi già nelle prime fasi della costruzione. L'inclinazione dell'edificio attualmente misura 5° rispetto all'asse verticale. La torre di Pisa rimane in equilibrio perché la verticale che passa per il suo baricentro cade all'interno della base di appoggio. ______________________________ A torre pendente de Pisa (em italiano Torre pendente di Pisa), ou simplesmente, Torre de Pisa, é um campanário (campanile ou campanário autônomo) da catedral da cidade italiana de Pisa. Está situada atrás da catedral, e é a terceira mais antiga estrutura na praça da Catedral de Pisa (Campo dei Miracoli), depois da catedral e do baptistério. Embora destinada a ficar na vertical, a torre começou a inclinar-se para Sudeste, logo após o início da construção, em 1173, devido a uma fundação mal construída e a um solo de fundação mal compactado, que permitiu à fundação ficar com assentamentos diferenciais. A torre atualmente se inclina para o sudoeste. A altura do solo ao topo da torre é de 55,86 metros no lado mais baixo e de 56,70 metros na parte mais alta. A espessura das paredes na base mede 4,09 metros e 2,48 metros no topo. Seu peso é estimado em 14 500 toneladas . A torre tem 296 ou 294 degraus: o sétimo andar da face Norte das escadas tem dois degraus a menos. Antes do trabalho de restauração realizado entre 1990 e 2001, a torre estava inclinada com um ângulo de 5.5 graus, estando agora a torre inclinada em cerca de 3.99 graus. Isto significa que o topo da torre está a uma distância de 3.9m de onde ela estaria, se a torre estivesse perfeitamente na vertical ______________________________ The Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italian: Torre pendente di Pisa) or simply the Tower of Pisa (La Torre di Pisa) is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa. It is situated behind the Cathedral and is the third oldest structure in Pisa's Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo) after the Cathedral and the Baptistry. Although intended to stand vertically, the tower began leaning to the southeast soon after the onset of construction in 1173 due to a poorly laid foundation and loose substrate that has allowed the foundation to shift direction. The height of the tower is 55.86 m (183.27 ft) from the ground on the low side and 56.70 m (186.02 ft) on the high side. The width of the walls at the base is 4.09 m (13.42 ft) and at the top 2.48 m (8.14 ft). Its weight is estimated at 14,500 metric tons (16,000 short tons). The tower has 296 or 294 steps; the seventh floor has two fewer steps on the north-facing staircase. Prior to restoration work performed between 1990 and 2001, the tower leaned at an angle of 5.5 degrees, but the tower now leans at about 3.99 degrees. This means that the top of the tower is 3.9 metres (12 ft 10 in) from where it would stand if the tower were perfectly vertical
