1. Do you sell “Conflict Diamonds”?
No. We adhere to the Kimberly Process and ensure that our Diamonds are Conflict Free Diamonds.
2. What does a Conflict Free Diamond mean?
The Clean Diamond Trade Act was signed into law requiring all US diamond retailers to purchase diamonds from manufacturers who have documentation warranting that the merchandise was obtained through legal channels. The US Customs Service is charged in actively enforcing the provisions of the Kimberley Process as diamonds enter American ports.

Rahmanim Imports provides a printable ring sizer to accurately gauge the ring size of the intended finger.
4. What does GIA Diamond Certificate mean?
The results of the examination a diamond by GIA, the Gemological Institute of America are printed onto a certified document and accompany the stone for verification of quality.
5. Are your diamonds treated in any way?
Our diamonds are 100% natural. We do not sell treated or anyway enhanced diamonds.
6. What is a fancy color diamond?
A fancy color diamond is a rare diamond, one with a natural body color strong enough to be attractive, rather than off color. Red, blue and green are the rarest; orange, violet, strong yellow and yellowish-green stones are more common. Brown is also included in the fancy category.
7. What are the 4c's?
The four C's are carat, cut, color and clarity. Carat is the weight of a gem. Cut refers to the shape of the stone (round, marquise, pear, oval, radiant, cushion, emerald). And the way facets are positioned on the diamond. When a diamond is cut to quality proportions the maximum light is returned through the top of the stone giving a great light show. Color is actually looking for the absence of color or transparency (except Colored Diamonds (see below)). The color grading scale starts with D meaning totally colorless and moves down the alphabet faintly increasing in body color. Clarity is inclusions and natural birthmarks of a diamond. Most diamonds contain inclusions. The clarity breakdown is as follows: FL - Flawless - No blemishes or inclusions. IF - Internally Flawless - No inclusions, only insignificant blemishes. VVS1, VVS2 - Very, very slightly included - Minute inclusions difficult to see. VS1, VS2 - Very slightly included - Minor inclusions difficult to somewhat easy to see. SI1, SI2 - Slightly included - Noticeable inclusions that are easy to see. I1, I2, I3 - Eye visible inclusions - Obvious inclusions, I3 may threaten durability.
8. How are colored diamonds graded?
Colored Diamonds are very rare, and follow the same 4 C’s as White Diamonds except for color which is as follows: FANCY: Colored diamonds graded as "fancy" exhibit colors that are obvious to the eye in the face-up direction. (Examples are pastel yellows.) FANCY INTENSE: This term is applied to any color variety that exhibits strong hues or bright tones. (Examples among yellow diamonds are daffodil and lemon.) FANCY VIVID: The term "fancy vivid" is applied to any color variety which exhibits very strong colors covering a wide range of lightness. (Examples among yellow diamonds are canary and marigold.) FANCY DEEP: The fancy deep grade is adjacent to the fancy intense and fancy vivid grades and is applied to color varieties that exhibit dark and strong. (Examples among yellow diamonds are honey and amber.) FANCY DARK: Currently, fancy dark is assigned to stones that are adjacent to fancy and fancy deep diamonds. Fancy darks exhibit both dark hues combined with a lack of brilliance or dullness. (Colored diamonds graded fancy dark might carry the descriptive adjectives garnet, chestnut, chocolate, mahogany, or sapphire blue, depending upon the color of the diamond.)
