You've heard of the traditional four "C"s to size up a diamond - carat, clarity, colour and cut. In our opinion Cut is the most important as it not only describe the diamond shape such as Round brilliant, Cushion cut, Asscher cut, Emerald cut and Princess cut but more importantly also its proportions, symmetry and finish often called "make" in the diamond trade. A diamond with a good make will be bright, fiery and really sparkle. The better the make the higher the price, fewer than 5% of diamonds have and excellent make. We specialize in diamonds having three excellent (3EX) grades and the hearts and Arrows (H&A) grade.
Carat refers to a diamonds weight, not its size. A carat is one-fifth of a gram. Generally the lighter in weight the stone the lower the price per carat.
Clarity is the degree to which a diamond is internally free of flaws. Flaws (or inclusions) cut a gem's sparkle and thus it's price.
Colour refers to a diamond's transparency. Colourless is best and as a rule the more transparent the diamond the higher the price.
All of our stones are conflict free in accordance with the Kimberley process.
