are amongst the rarest and most beautiful creations on earth and buying a diamond should be a memorable experience but not a daunting one.

We recommend our customers choose a GIA certified diamond, as this is the most accurate and popular grading certification.

Understanding what characteristics make up a diamond is the easy part, choosing the perfect one is up to you. There are 4 characteristics which identify a diamond; they are the 4 C’s.

Carat Weight
The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. One carat is divided into 100 “points” so a diamond of 25 points is measured as 0.25 carat (or a quarter of a carat)

Colour Grade
Diamond colour grades start at D and continue through the alphabet. Colourless stones are graded D and the closer a diamond is to being colourless, the rarer and more valuable it is.

Clarity Grade
Clarity Is the term used to describe the size and number of inclusions in a diamond. These inclusions are nature’s finger print and make every diamond quite unique. Most are quite difficult to see with the naked eye and require magnification to become apparent. The fewer the inclusions, the more valuable the stone.

Cut Grade
When a diamond is cut to ideal proportions, light is reflected from one facet to another and then dispersed through the top of the stone.
A skilful Diamond Cutter can unlock an incomparable natural beauty by accurately arranging each facet to maximise the amount of light returned to the eye of the observer. Under these ideal proportions, diamonds can produce a hearts and arrows effect .
