The Art of LEGO ~ Making a Difference, One Carat at a time

Did you know? All diamonds are imperfect, and every diamond is unique, just like you and me. A diamond starts off as a solidified piece of nature, and through the pressures it endures it forms blemishes and inclusions aka “internal characteristics”. It is the internal characteristics and blemishes that actually cause the cuts and clarity in a diamonds unique character. Cut and clarity are one of the most important facets of a diamond.
