The bracelets quickly became popular across Europe and then the world. The principle is a simple threading system that allows charms to be placed, added and rearranged by the wearer to design and instantly build original bracelets of their own.

Diamond Colour

The diamond colour scale was devised by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in the mid 1950's to define and regulate the colour spectrum of diamonds. The GIA proposed starting at D as the best and most colourless diamond available. The colour D was chosen because diamond dealers were already using A, B and C and a break was required to regulate and harmonize the industry. The diamond colour scale progresses through the alphabet from D until Z. The graphic below illustrates the GIA colour ...

There are many diamond shapes; the most popular is the round brilliant diamond. The round brilliant is the classic diamond shape and contains 58 facets including the culet. The round brilliant shape is the most expensive as it is usually possible to retain more carat size by cutting to fancy shapes than c...

Diamond Carat

Diamond Carat

29/08/2017 0
Q: Is carat all about size?A: A common trap, diamond carat is a measurement of weight not of size, 5 carats = 1 gram. A diamond is like an iceberg, if most of its volume or mass is below the 'water-line', the girdle, waist or widest part of the stone, then the diamond will look or 'face-up' smaller. So an 0. 95 carat diamond can have a larger diametre than a 1 carat diamond and therefore look bigger.Remember a 2 carat round diamond at 8mm is only 1?mm larger than a 6?mm 1 carat diamond. This is ...
