Cut of a Diamond

The cut of a diamond is a critical factor influencing its visual appeal. Our skilled artisans carefully shape and facet each diamond to maximise its brilliance. A well-cut diamond allows light to enter and reflect internally, creating the mesmerising sparkle that captures hearts. We meticulously consider the proportions, symmetry, and polish to ensure that every facet contributes to the overall beauty of the stone.

Colour of a Diamond

Diamond colour ranges from colourless to various shades. We guide you through this spectrum, helping you choose a diamond with the perfect hue for your preferences and design. Our experts assess each diamond under controlled lighting conditions to determine its colour grade accurately. Whether you prefer the classic brilliance of a colourless diamond or the unique charm of a fancy-colored stone, our selection meets the highest standards.

Clarity examines a diamond’s internal characteristics, known as inclusions, and external features, referred to as blemishes. Our thorough evaluation ensures that each diamond is free from significant imperfections that may affect its brilliance. We use magnification tools to scrutinise the clarity characteristics, offering you diamonds of exceptional purity and visual clarity.

The carat weight measures a diamond’s size. While larger diamonds are often more sought after, our experts help you find the ideal balance between size and quality. We consider your preferences and budget to guide you towards a diamond that perfectly suits your desires.
