As I have mentioned in my earlier post on Learning The Fundamentals, it is important to know some basic terms, whether you are a starting novice wanting to learn more about diamonds or you are interested to get into the trade. Perhaps you are contemplating to buy an engagement ring for your loved one and you are not sure whether the seller is selling what he/she represents to you, short of asking him/her to place his/her hand on a Holy Book and swore that he/she is made of the truth.
Nowadays there is not dearth of information that is available to us, but more of an information deluge from various medias that one has to filter out the chaff with the wheat. Cut out the white noise so to speak. So I condense some material to give readers a simpler guide. This post can serve as a reference material for you, whether you are the uninitiated or the initiated wanting to get more.
Trawling the internet, I pluck out some of the easiest graphics for the readers to understand the various terms of the anatomy of a diamond. References and credit mention are made below this post, so that if you want more then you go deeper.
Note: Some descriptions are a repeat to reinforce the learning experience.
