All our diamonds are certified from independent laboratories in order to guarantee the quality of every single jewel we produce. There are several gemological institutes which we collaborate with, all of which have an international reputation.
All our diamonds come with a gemological certification, released from one of these independent laboratories: GIA, IGS, HRD and ANCHOR CERT.
Our purpose is to reassure customers regarding the autonomous verification procedure.
We believe that quality is paramount when choosing a diamond. Each diamond is unique and is judged by four factors that in combination determine its value… the 4 C’s (cut, clarity, colour and clarity).
When diamonds come from the earth they look nothing like the beautiful finished product you see in fine jewellery. The cut of a diamond influences the sparkle of a diamond. If diamonds are cut to deep, they loose or leak light through the side or bottom, resulting in less brilliance.
The fewer natural blemishes found in a diamond the rarer and more valuable they are. Almost all diamonds have natural blemishes in their make-up. These are known as inclusions. Inclusions are formed by minerals or fractures while the diamond is forming in the earth although most are not visible to the naked eye unless magnified. Clarity is a measure of the diamond’s purity.
Colourless diamonds are the rarest and most valuable of all. Diamonds are found in varying shades of white which range from a totally colourless stone to a light tint of brown or yellow. The colour refers to the degree to which a diamond is colourless. Even subtle variations in tones may dramatically affect the value of a diamond.
The carat refers to the weight of the diamond. Diamonds are valued in terms of their weight, not in terms of their size. Two diamonds of equal weight can still differ in price because the quality is also affected by the cut, the clarity and the colour.
