Diamond Talk No. 2
How to Judqe
If you ask ten persons what they
regard as the first essential to fine
quality In a diamond, eight of them
will say: PERFECTION. Meaning
by that, a diamond free from car
bon specks, feathers, fissures, bub
bles, scratches and similar blem
ishes. That word PERFECTION used
in connection with diamonds has
been overworked for years, and
still does overtime duty for those
who are unfamiliar with diamond
qualities and values.
To present diamond characteris
tics in accordance with their rank
as to desirability, it is only neces
sary to consider this fact: THAT
PEOPLE WEAR DIAMONDS FOR
THE PURPOSE OF HAVING
THEM SEEN BY OTHERS AND
NOT MERELY FOR THE SAKE
OF HAVING THEM ON THEIR
Proof of this, is the fact that no
well-bred, respectable woman
wears her diamonds: constantly
when at home, but she adorns her
self with jewels only when she at
tends the theatre opera and social
function or goes into the company
