Diamond Carat Weight

ASHI provides quality jewelry products with authentic gold, silver, or platinum with genuine diamonds and/or gemstones. Diamond carat weight is an important ingredient in diamond jewelry. Of course, no two diamonds are exactly alike. Each is cut to maximize its natural beauty. In the process of diamond cutting, stones are sorted by the resulting diamond weight using the decimal system. To give you the best selection and price, our diamonds fall within a range appropriate to each fractional carat weight listing. The difference may not be visible to the naked eye, but we know it's important to you. That's why we've supplied the following table:

Treated / Enhanced Gemstones

ASHI also uses treated or enhanced gemstones. Most natural precious and semi-precious gemstones are treated or enhanced to intensify color, diminish imperfections and improve durability. Some of the common treatment types are Oiling, Heating, Diffusion, Drilling, Irradiation, etc.

Rhodium Plating

White gold, platinum, and some yellow and sterling silver jewelry are rhodium-plated. For rhodium-plated jewelry, it involves plating the jewelry with a surface that guards against scratches that also give a reflective white appearance.
