Buy Diamond Stone

True flatness in sharpening is very rarely an essential and there is no such thing with any abrasive surface, as flatness because as soon as you start to abrade the steel you compromise the surface. I have used EZE-LAP diamond plates for almost 2 decades with absolutely no complaints. The difference between me and people selling diamond plates is that my information is from a working knowledge in the field.

Another question on the window cleaner. We usually mix it ourselves with water and methylated spirit plus a shot of vinegar (works great for glass and much cheaper). Any reason not to use that with the stones, probably without the vinegar?

Paul says:Absolutely not correct. The EZE-lap plates are flat enough to flatten surfaces and sharpen all your chisels and plane irons, anything you want. I have used them for 20 years with no problem. On the other hand, I have recently tried out the least expensive diamond plates I could find at 3 a piece and these work great too.

A gemstone engagement ring is a type of engagement ring that has a non-diamond center stone. Often designed using traditional engagement settings such as solitaires, halos, and three-stones, some couples choose less traditional settings to hold their less traditional center stone. Common gemstone choices include Sapphire, Emerald, and Ruby. Aquamarine engagement rings, Morganite engagement rings, Tanzanite engagement rings, Opal engagement rings, and Amethyst engagement rings are gaining popularity too. However, some of these stones will not stand up to daily wear.

There are many benefits to choosing a gemstone engagement ring, including personality, uniqueness, and cost. Learning the risks associated with choosing a gemstone over a diamond will help couples better care for their gemstone engagement ring, and feel confident in their choice.

Couples choose gemstone engagement rings for many reasons. Some like to express themselves in color. A bright red ruby engagement ring says passion. A dark blue sapphire engagement ring stands for loyalty. Couples love splashy oranges and pinks, and cool fresh greens. Gemstones are lively!

Another reason to consider a gemstone engagement ring is cost. Depending upon the stone, size, and color, gemstones are often a fraction of the cost of a similarly sized diamond. So, couples choosing a gemstone engagement ring can often afford a larger center stone in gemstone than in diamond.

Speaking of size, many gemstones regularly grow in large crystals. As a result, many gemstones are available in sizes and shapes that diamond is not. So, couples have the opportunity to choose large, fancy shapes for their special ring.

While there are many benefits to gemstone engagement rings, there are risks to consider before purchase too. Because gemstones are not as hard as diamond, gemstone engagement rings may scratch or chip more easily. Couples can protect against this by choosing a hard gemstone, and by designing a protective setting.

The Mohs Hardness Scale was developed to rank the hardness of gemstones and minerals. It goes from 1 (Talc) to 10 (Diamond). This is useful when trying to select a gemstone engagement ring center stone, because we know how hard daily life is. Huh? No seriously, hear me out.

Topaz is an 8/10 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, making it a good engagement ring option. It symbolizes wealth and royalty. The most common color of Topaz today is blue, however it is also naturally found in colorless, pink, yellow, and peach hues. Blue Topaz comes in some massive crystals, making it a great choice for couples that want a huge look. When choosing a Topaz engagement ring, you should look for an eye clean stone with medium color.

My engagement ring is a Spinel! Although it is not commonly heard of, Spinel makes a good engagement ring choice due to its 8/10 hardness on the Mohs Scale and its vast array of colors. Spinel symbolizes power and protection. My Spinel is a blueish-Violet color, but I have also designed Spinel engagement rings in bright Pink and Black. The most sought after colors in this gemstone engagement ring are red, pink, and blue, as they can rival Ruby and Sapphire. Spinel is a Type II gemstone, which means they often have some inclusions, but can also be eye-clean. So, couples choosing a Spinel should look for an eye-clean stone in a color that speaks to them!

Alexandrite is a great choice for an engagement ring due to its 8.5/10 Mohs hardness. It is the color-change version of the larger gem group Chrysoberyl, and symbolizes luck and balance. Alexandrite changes from green in daylight to red under a light bulb. Non-alexandrite Chrysoberyl comes in yellow, bronze, and green. Chrysoberyl symbolizes protection and healing. Chrysoberyl and Alexandrite are Type II gemstones, meaning they will have some inclusions, but eye-clean gems are available. So, couples choosing this engagement ring should look for eye clean gems.

Sapphire and its sister, Ruby, are the hardest non-diamond gems available at a 9/10 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. Members of the gem family Corundum, red gems are Ruby, and all the other rainbow colors are Sapphire. A Sapphire engagement ring signifies loyalty. A Ruby engagement ring symbolizes love and passion. Sapphire and Ruby are Type II gems, meaning they will have some inclusions, but eye clean gems should be sought out. Rich medium tones (in other words, not too light and not too dark) are the most beautiful and valuable. Because of its superior hardness and crazy amount of colors, a Sapphire engagement ring is an excellent gemstone engagement ring choice. Likewise, due to its romantic color and great durability, couples looking for something different should definitely consider a Ruby engagement ring.

Carat measures a diamond's weight, not its size as it is often confused. Five carats is equal to one metric gram, or, one carat is equal to 200 milligrams. The heavier the diamond, the greater its value. Small stones of high color and clarity are easier to find than larger ones, so you will notice them more often in jewelry stores.

Heavier stones, however, are harder to find, leading to greater value and use of supply and demand principles. Based strictly on weight, diamonds are incredibly valuable. The heavier the diamond, the rarer and the more valuable it is. Washington Diamond specializes in superior-quality, GIA-certified diamonds of all weights, ranging from one-half carat and up for engagement rings.

The system for grading clarity established and implemented by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is accepted by all diamond trading centers as the standard for diamond grading. It assesses diamond clarity according to size, position, color, and the number of inclusions or flaws present.

Diamond grading reports are issued by independent gemological laboratories. While there are several grading laboratories, Washington Diamond sells diamonds that are graded only by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA -

It is our opinion that GIA has the most accurate and valuable standards that ensure proper quality in a diamond. A grading report recognizes quality characteristics identified in a uniform laboratory environment, which allows you to gauge and compare quality and value.

Cut deals with a diamond's proportions and angles, which determine how much it sparkles. The Cut is different from the Shape (such as round, princess, oval, etc.). There are five cut grades, ranging from ideal to poor.

A properly-cut diamond will refract the light that enters it and returns it through the top to produce the highly-desired sparkle. If the diamond is too shallow or too deep, some light will escape through the bottom, giving a shadowy appearance when viewed from the top.
