In the course of reading these web sites, I often see advice to the effect that you should look at the stone in shaded daylight. Why "shaded" as opposed to direct sunlight?

Gary ... I have to tell ya something we do in the store that is (I think) amazing. We have a bench in our store that puts your back towards the window (where sunlight is coming in although not direct, unless it's sunset). There is overhead office lighting where the bench is located. If you hold the diamond down in front of you as you are sitting on the bench looking down into the stone the diamond takes on one appearance (overhead diffuse office light) and as you raise the diamond up to allow the light to come through the window (although not intense direct light) the colors that shimmy within the super ideals we carry are just incredible to observe. It is a procedure we're including as we give our cut presentations in store. You know what I'm talkin about right? It's natural light but not intense. A very nice light condition to appreciate the finer cuts.

Peace,
Rhino
