When choosing your diamond, it can be overwhelming with all the things to think about. Our priority is to give our customer the most beautiful diamond for their budget. We hand pick every diamond to find the very best stones We work with natural diamonds, meaning every diamond is created by nature and unique. For diamonds that are 0,5ct and up, they come with a GIA certificate that guarantee the diamond's quality. You can read more about GIA here
When grading a diamond, the most important to look at are the 4 C:s.
Carat - The diamond's weight. It is important to not only look at the carat weight when judging a diamond's size, we also take into consideration the measurements of the diamond's table and very important, the cut. To get a better value for money, you can choose a carat weight that is slightly lower than the highest carat demands, for example choose 0,95 ct instead of 1 carat.
Color - For natural white diamonds, the color is referring to how colorless the diamond is. D is the very best color. We recommend to choose a color between D-H (Jaeger to Wesselton) to get a colorless impression. For an untrained eye, up to the letter H (Wesselton), it is hard to make the distinction between different diamond colors. When compared with a D color diamond, it is easier to see a difference. However a diamond in color H is still of exceptional quality.
Clarity Almost all diamonds have some imperfections, but this does not have to be a bad thing. The imperfections created by nature makes your diamond unique and makes it different from the synthetic diamonds. The grading of the clarity depends on how the inclusion look an where it is located. We recommend to choose a diamond in VVS-SI1 range. It is important to take the diamond shape into consideration when choosing clarity, for example a brilliant cut diamond have more facets than an emerald cut diamond. With less facets the inclusions will be more visible. We look carefully at each diamond we choose for our customers, making sure that the diamond looks perfect for the naked eye.
Cut - How the diamond is cut is a very important factor to think about. An excellent cut can make the diamond appear brighter and larger. For example, an excellent cut diamond in 0,5 carat can look bigger than a 0,6 carat diamond with lower cut. We recommend to always choose very good or excellent cut to get as beautiful diamond as possible.
Our suppliers follow the Kimberley process to guarantee conflict free and certified diamonds.
