1. Light Performance Grading of Diamonds: This is a unique science-based grade for describing a diamond as it shows your diamond’s beauty based on how it interacts with light? When other gemstones are graded differently, only diamond’s form is a mien of how it plays with light by bending and moving within the diamond. Diamonds are graded based on how the light that enters the diamond is reflected back to the observer, how skillful the craftsman has cut it with luminous flashes of light occurring as the diamond moves, the rainbow colour that can be seen as the light bends within the diamond and also whether it has optimal proportions.
2. Cut and Symmetry Measurement: Hearts and Arrows precision and grading is the highest level of grading used by diamond manufacturers universally.

Some inclusions are visible to the naked eye and some are not. But every inclusion will influence the movement of light inside the diamond. This in turn affects the performance grade of the diamonds too.
