How our Diamonds Are Picked:

Bony Levy selects diamonds from F to I in color.
Bony Levy chooses diamonds that are VVS2 to SI2 in clarity with minimal to no black inclusions and only stones with minor inclusions on the side are approved.
Bony Levy stocks Round Brilliant and Cushion cut from 0.50ctw to 2.0ctw, with very good to
excellent cut/polish/symmetry, with ideal measurements and depths less than 65%.
We are able to source stones outside of our standards on request.
ABOUT DIAMONDS THE 4 C'S
The GIA created the Diamond 4 C's—color, cut, carat, and clarity
—which serve as the international grading system.
Carat - Diamond carat weight is the measurement of how much
a diamond weighs. A carat is divided into 100 points and is rounded to the hundredth decimal place. For example, a quarter carat diamond weighs .25 carats or 25 points.
Color - White diamonds are graded on their lack of color. The less color, the higher their grade is. The scale begins with the letter D, representing colorless, and continues to the letter Z,
representing light brown or yellow.
Diamonds are color graded by comparing them to stones of known color.
Colored diamonds —such as pink, blue, or canary—are graded on a separate color scale.
Clarity - Each diamond is uniquely formed over 100 miles under the earth amidst great heat and pressure. Due to these extreme conditions, each stone exhibits birthmarks called inclusions
(internal) or blemishes (external). Clarity is established when a skilled grader examines the stone under 10x magnification.
The GIA Grading System contains 11 grades ranging from Flawless to I3. It's good to note that very few diamonds are ever graded Flawless.
Cut - The cut not only refers to the make or cutting quality of the diamond, but also to the shape. All beautiful diamonds must have these three great cutting characteristics:
Brightness - Internal and external white light reflected from a diamond.
Fire - The colors of the rainbow coming from inside the
Sparkle - Often called scintillation— the pattern of light and
dark caused by reflection within the diamond.
Diamonds come in many shapes.The most popular is the round, but shapes such as heart, oval, marquise, pear, emerald cut, cushion, and Asscher are becoming increasingly popular.
