You’ve Decided You’d Like Some Diamond Jewellery?
…but where to start? How do you know you’re getting enough bang for your buck? Well, the value of a diamond is decided by its clarity, its cut, its colour, and its carat. If you’re choosing an engagement ring or another piece that requires a big, beautiful stone, then you need to know you’re getting the quality you want. If it’s something smaller where it just needs to be good enough, rather than perfect, then we can help you out there too. Just read the guide below, and you should be confident in any kind of diamond selection.
Diamond Anatomy & Cut Quality
An ideal diamond is cut not too shallow and not too deep – just the right depth to give optimum clarity and beauty. This is why our diamonds are sourced from prestigious fine diamond suppliers in the World Famous Hatton Garden Jewellery District.
Individual designs take into account things like how far above the setting the table should sit, or how to shape a piece to closely hug the pavilion angle. The diagram below best illustrates all the parts that make up a world-class diamond.

Now You Know What To Look For
We tend to use VS2-VS1 quality diamonds with G-J colouring for most of our designs – striking, we feel, the right balance between quality and price. However, if you’d like a design with a higher quality and/or carat of stone, you can always email us to let us know what you’d like.
