Best Answer

The term "SI" indicates a clarity category, not a colour category.

For clarity, "SI" indicates slightly included, and is usually followed by a number, 1, 2, or 3. In this scale, fewer is better.

How can I tell if the stones in my ring are real diamonds?

Real diamonds will cut glass, though there is speculation that some fake diamonds can cut glass, and that you can damage a real diamond by cutting glass with it. Another way to tell is to hold the diamond up in the light. If you see any orange color from the diamond, it is fake, as real diamonds have every color EXCEPT orange.

Is a white diamond a real diamond?

Natural diamonds in the white color scale are graded from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow). The white color range is known as G-H grade. The question of whether what you are looking at is real or not should be considered regarding the material rather than the color, as natural diamonds come in very many colors, usually white. Check if the diamond is man made, cubic zircon, Russian simulate or something similar. Clarity enhanced diamonds are also real, natural diamonds. Diamonds are valued by how closely they approach colorlessness - the less color, the higher the value. Most diamonds found in jewelry stores run from colorless to near-colorless with slight hints of yellow or brown. The only exceptions are the fancy color diamonds that lie outside of this range. Many of these color distinctions are so subtle that they are invisible to the untrained eye. But these slight color differences make a very big difference in diamond quality and price. PS - The diamonds described above are actually not white but colorless. There are truly white diamonds they are very rare. The best are opalescent and quite beautiful.
