  • How to take care of diamond jewellery?
    Now that you have found your diamond dreampiece, you will want to make sure it stays sparkly by giving it the proper care. Here are the do's and dont's: -Avoid touching the centerstonewith your hands. Diamonds and gemstones attract dirt, dust and grease. These components can influence the way your diamond looks. Your diamond may look hazy or dull as a result of dirt that is stuck underneath it. When putting your ring on (or taking it off), try grasping the band of the ring and not the diamond or gemstone. - Your beautyroutine can ruin your diamond jewellery. Usage of lotion, perfume, hairspray, soap, oil, water, make-up and many other factors, while still wearing your jewel, will dull the brilliance of your diamond piece. We advise our clientele to remove their jewellery before washing hands/face, showering, exercising or doing any other activity containing these elements or other chemicals. Lotion can leave a residue, that discolors, on the gold or metal of your jewel. Perfumes contain oils that stick to diamond or gem surfaces and leave your jewel looking clouded. - Store your jewellery in a clean and dry jewellery case/pouch or in a box. Make sure your diamond jewellery does not scratch any other items/gems by dividing each jewel securely. A diamond can only be damaged or scratched by another diamond, since it is the hardest gemstone from them all. - Remove your jewel before swimming. Salty water and chlorine may damage your jewellery item, discolor the metal (gold/platinum) and harm the finish and polish of the diamond or gemstone. - Stay away from direct sunlight. Try to avoid extreme exposure of sunlight. This can lead to certain gemstones breaking and may tarnish gold. - Watch out from drains/sinks. Your precious diamond piece may fall into the sink while washing your hands. Try putting your jewels in a jewellery-bowl or somewhere safe. - Do not buy "special detergents". These harsh chemicals may harsh the metal of your jewel or even your diamonds/gems. These so-called jewellery cleaners are not that effective and do not benefit your diamond jewellery. - Have your pieces replated and repolished. Your 18kt white gold pieces will look brand-new when they get replated and repolished. Retip the prongs of your diamond ring to make sure your diamond is set securely. These services are crucial to maintain the good condition of your jewellery, at least every two years.
  • Can I clean my jewellery at home?
    When you do not have the option to visit our Solitaire shop and make your ring or other jewel sparkle again, try our following tips to make the best out of cleaning your jewel(s) at home. There are two easy ways to clean your diamond jewellery: 1. The first and easiest from the two, is cleaning the item with mild soapy water. Dip your jewellery piece in a bowl containing lukewarm (not hot!) water, mixed with soft soap. You can try polishing it with a soft toothbrush and rinsing with lukewarm water. Afterwards, pat it dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any harsh soaps/chemicals to clean your jewellery as they can damage the gemstones, diamonds or gold. Avoid paper towels as they can scratch the components of your jewel(s). Bleach or other cleaning agents can make your jewel look dirty and can damage precious gemstones. 2. Ammonia is a safe cleaning agent and with proper use, can make your jewellery look as new. Make a mixture from water and ammonia and then soak your jewel(s) for half an hour in a bowl containing these elements. Then, clean your jewellery with water and leave to dry on a soft cloth. Do not rub agressively being this may lead to damage and harm the metal parts of your jewel. The rhodium layer of the 18kt white gold jewel can get damaged or lose its sparkle. Solitaire Jewellery does not recommend cleaning your jewellery at home and advises her clients to get it properly steamed clean at her Jewellery shop.
  • What are the 4 C's?
    The quality of diamonds are expressed in the 4 C's. When choosing the right diamond, the 4 C's are crucial to defining the nature of your diamond jewellery. 1. Carat The weight of the diamond is indicated in carats. The diamond scale is very precise when weighing a stone. One diamond carat equals 0.2 grams or is translated in "points" when weighing less than one carat. So 100 points equals a full carat. *Golden Solitaire tip: to save a considerable amount of money, choose a diamond with a carat weight lightly below the whole or 0.50 marks. If you are interested in buying a 1.00ct diamond, go for a 0.90ct. The difference wont be noticed. *Golden Solitaire tip #2: Diameters speak louder than weight! For example, a 0.90ct with larger diameters will also appear larger in size than a 1.00ct with smaller measuring diameters. Be wise and always examine the diameters of a diamond. 2. Colour The colour of the diamond is an important aspect when choosing your perfect stone. The most qualified diamond used in jewellery pieces are colourless and nearly colourless. The colours D, E and F are amongst the rarest on a scale that goes up to Z, the most yellow colour. When buying for pure investment, choose for higher colourlessness. Diamond prices increase or decrease in alphabetical order. If you choose to buy a diamond with an "I" colour grade, the price will be immensly cheaper than a diamond with an "F" colour grade. Fancy coloured diamonds belong to a seperate catagory. Coloured diamonds are exceptionally rare and therefore expensive. *Golden Solitaire tip: when buying a diamond below 1.00ct choose smartly and opt for an I, J or K diamond. If you are considering a bigger diamond, we suggest choosing above H-colour grade or higher, that is youre budget allows it. 3. Clarity Internal and external characteristics are common in diamonds since they are formed under conditions of intense heat and pressure that cause carbon atoms to crystallise. Most diamonds have birthmarks. External flaws are known as "blemishes", while internal ones are called "inclusions". These aspects aid gemologists seperate natural diamonds from simulants and synthetics. The ranking goes from Internally Flawless/Flawless to Imperfect #3. 4. Cut The cutting refers to how proportioned the dimensions of a diamond are. Other aspects include the positions of the facets and surfaces of the diamond. All of thesE factors influence the brilliance and sparkle of the stone. It also is the only value-determining factor that is in control of man. In a diamond that is well-cut, most of the light will pass through the crown. The crown is the top part of the diamond extending from the girdle to the table of the stone. The table size of a diamond is particularly important since it can make a diamond look bigger once it has larger measurements than other diamonds weighing the same. The girdle, the thin perimeter of the diamond, describes the circumference. When viewing a diamond from a profile view, the girdle is the widest part of the polished diamond. The culet is the bottom part of the diamond, where the facets of the pavilion meet. Generally, it is not visible to the naked human eye and it adds to the brilliance of the stone. A diamond cut is based on a combination of proportions, symmetry and polish. It greatly affects the brilliance. For example, if a diamond is poorly cut, it will automatically be less sparkling. Nevertheless, a diamond shape is based on the outline of the diamond. While the Round Brilliant cut is the most popular one and glows the most out of all, don't be shy to dare and be different. Solitaire Jewellery offers an immense collection of exquisite Fancy Shape diamonds.
  • What are Hearts and Arrows?
    Hearts and Arrows are round brilliant cut diamonds with special patterns that are only visible under certain lighting conditions. The round brilliant cut diamond features 57 facets. They are the "ideal" cut, have the perfect proportions, polish and a specific facetting patern. Once all these aspects meet, the result of the diamond is a repeatable and almost perfect pattern of eight symmetrical arrows when viewed from top (crown), and eight symmetrical hearts when viewed from the bottom (pavillion). Hearts and Arrows Diamonds does not mean perfect cut Some diamond experts disagree on which diamonds receive the labeling of "Hearts and Arrows". This is as a result of the diamond world not having an industry standard. The "ideal" term is used to describe diamonds displaying perfect optical symmetry. However, there are diamonds that have excellent cut grades that feature imperfect symmetry, and lack the "Hearts and Arrows" pattern. Still, this does not mean they lack beauty or brilliance. Not to mention, some contemporary cuts will show the Hearts and Arrows pattern but without proper proportions.
  • Difference between diamond and a brilliant?
    The terms 'diamond' and 'brilliant' often get confused and are used as eachothers synonyms. They are, however, not equivalent to one another. The most popular shape for diamonds is the Round Brilliant and its association to this term comes from its typical cut style with 57 facets to ensure maximum brilliance. The shape resembles to a cone and contributes to maximized through the top of the diamond (crown). Of all the diamond shapes, the round brilliant shines the brightest and sparkles the most. This is the main reason for the round brilliant being the most popular and sought-after diamond shape. Whether customers are looking for an engagement ring, wedding rings where diamond are inserted in the band, classic brilliant earrings or a single round stone pendant. The most expensive shape is the round brilliant Not only due to high demand is the round brilliant the most expensive one from all the diamond shapes. Additionally, considering it has the most facets of any shape, it requires the most precision work. Diamond cutters have to discard more of the diamond rough and you essentially pay for a larger diamond than what you actually end up with. Fancy shape diamonds like marquise cut appear lower on the diamond price chart.
  • What is the origin of Antwerp diamonds?
    History Antwerp is known as the diamond capital of the world for centuries. Since the 15th century, the diamond trade started in the port where the first rough diamonds where brought over from India. In India, diamonds eroded from their source rock and were found in rivers and streams. In the 70's, the three most essential rough diamond producers the Democratic Republic of Congo, the former Soviet-Union and South Africa. Today, Antwerp's diamond district boasts Roughly 80% of all rough diamonds in the world pass through Antwerp. Diamonds transit through the city as rough or already polished and from there on they continue their journey on various markets in different countries. The Antwerp World Diamond Centre In 1973, the AWDC was formed in order to protect and promote the diamond sector in Belgium. The corporation was established by the Belgian government and diamond idustry representatives. By 2007, the AWDC was split up in two different enterprises: 1. The Antwerp World Diamond Centre: a private foundation that is in charge of the representation of the collective interests of the Belgian diamond industry. The foundation advocates Antwerp as the global capital of the diamond industry. 2. The HRD, Hoge Raad voor Diamant, is a independant subsidiary of the AWDC. It serves as a commercial organization containing six different branches: the Diamond Lab, the Precious Stones Lab, Research, Education, the Graduates Club and Equipment. Antwerp and Diamonds Diamonds in Antwerp are a fundamental part of the city. Tourists that visit Antwerp, take part of guided tours that take them to the heart of Antwerp where they can experience and learn more about diamonds. The city is after all a home to a group of highly skilled diamond cutters whose specialty is processing the most impressive diamonds that appear on the market. Antwerp has the highest ranking where international diamonds trade and features premium quality. Diamond prices in Antwerp are thus advantageous.

  • What are the most famous diamonds?
    The Golden Jubilee Diamond is a 545.67 carats brown diamond and is known as the largest cut and faceted diamond in the world. It was first named the "Unnamed Diamond" and was formed and cut from a 755.5 carats. The diamond required two years of work, cutting and polishing, until it was fully created and known as the Golden Jubilee Diamond. The value of the stone is considered to range between four and twelve million USD. If the diamond would be sold on auction, there is a possibility this stone would fetch an even higher amount. The Incomparable Diamond was discovered in 1984, by a young girl in a pile of dirt from old mines dumps, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The colossal diamond's owners planned to cut the stone from the rough and turn it into the world's largerst gem. The stone weighs 407.48 carats, has a brown-yellowish colour and is graded with the highest clarity internally flawless (IF). The Cullinan I or the Great Star of Africa, is a pendeloque-cut (pear-shaped modification of the round brilliant cut) diamond weighing 530.2 carats and features 74 facets. Today, it is still the largest clear cut diamond in the world. The Cullinan II or the Second Star of Africa, is a cushion-cut diamond weighing 94.4 carats, and appears in the front of the UK's Imperial State Crown. The Cullinan III or the Lesser Star of Africa, is a pear-shaped diamond and weighs 94.4 carats. It is known for being originally set in the coronation crown that was made for Queen Mary. The Tiffany Yellow Diamond is one of the largest yellow diamonds ever discovered. It has a weight of 128.54 carats and contains 82 facets to maximize its brilliance and sparkle. The cushion-shaped diamond was found in the Kimberly mine that is located in South Africa. The stone is named after the jeweler Charles Tiffany, who purchased the stone in the year 1877. The Koh-I-Noor Diamond ("Mountain of light" in Indian) weighs 105.6 carats and is part of the British Crown Jewels. The stone came from India's alluvial mines and weighed originally 186 old carats. Currently, the colourless oval-shaped diamond is on public display in the Jewel House at the Tower of London. There is no exact estimation of the diamond's value. The Regent Diamond is owned by the French State and has a weight of 140.64 carats. It is on display for the public eye in the Louvre and is considered to be one of the most beautiful gems in the world. The cushion-cut stone was discovered in 1698 in India and was cut in England. It has a white colour with pale blue and is estimated to be worth 48 million Sterling Pounds. The Cullinan IV weighs 63.6 carats and has a cushion shape. The white coloured stone was discovered in Africa in the First Mine in 1905. It was set in the base of Queen Mary's crown but was removed. The Hope Diamond has a much-admired fancy dark greyish blue colour and weighs 45.52 carats. The jewel is believed to have been found in India and has a cushion antique brilliant cut. The Hope Diamond is set in a pendant together with 16 white diamonds, both pear-shapes and cushion-cut diamonds. The necklace of the pendant contains another 45 white diamonds. The value was estimated to be 250 million USD and is held today by the Smithsonian Institution in the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. The Dresden Green Diamond is a 41 carat green diamond and was found in the Kollur mine in India. The stone, which has a VS1 clarity, is said to be potentially an internally flawless diamond, if slightly recut. The diamond has a unique green apple colour as a result of natural exposure to radioactive materials , whereas irridation of diamonds can change their colour. The Briolette of India was discoverd in India and weighs 90.38 carats. Its unique briolette shape and D (colourless) colour makes the piece most memorable. The legendary stone is the oldest diamond in the world, even older than the Koh-I-Noor. It has no chemical impurities nor does it have plastic deformations in the crystal. The gem is known as "the purest of the pure" and is set in a necklace, together with another diamond and a large, white pearl. The Wittelsbach Graff Diamond, discovered in India, weighs 31.06 carats and was purchased by Laurence Graff in 2008. Two years later, the jeweler announced he recut the stone to remove flaws and enhance the color. The deep blue diamond with internally flawless clarity caused for much controversy, as diamond critics claimed the recutting of the stone altered the diamond and made it indistinguishable. The piece is estimated to have a value of 80 million USD.
  • How do diamonds go from rough to polished?
    The procedure of changing a rough diamond and turning it into a perfectly shaped gem is called diamond cutting. This process must be done by a highly skilled diamond cutter, with expert knowledge, technique and the right tools to create this kind of change. Every small decision will drastically effect the outcome of profitability. Since diamonds are one of the hardest materials, special diamond-coated surfaces are used to grind the diamond down. The diamond cutting process includes these steps: planning, cleaving, bruting, polishing and the final inspection. 1. Planning: The first choice to make is to decide on the diamond shape itself. The diamond will also be analyzed from an economic perspective with attention to maximum return on investment, and in how much time the finished diamond will be sold. The weight retention analysis studies the diamond rough to find the best combination of finished stones as it relates to per carat value. In colored diamonds, the cutting process can influence the colour grade of the diamond, thereby raising its value. Numerous cut shapes are used to intensify the color of the diamond. 2. Cleaving: The separation of a piece of diamond rough into separate pieces, to be finished as separate gems, is called cleaving. A diamond can also be split, but since the cleaver is dealing with four possible directions, the planning can be a bit more difficult. The huge disadvantage of cleaving is its lack of flexibility in the directions that the stone can be split. There is also a risk of breaking the stone irregularly, which results in a great loss in value. 3. Bruting: Bruting is a process in diamond cutting that forms the girdle outline. Once the height and width of the diamond are decided, it is then shaped along the girdle edge by grinding it against another diamond. Today, diamonds are rounded using either a laser; a diamond disk impregnated with diamonds; or two diamonds cutting against each other. Industrial diamonds can also be used for bruting a diamond round. 4. Polishing: Now that the shape of the diamond is formed, the next phase contains creating the facets of the stone. The diamond cutter places the rough piece on a rotating arm and uses a spinning wheel to polish the rough. This process leads to smooth and reflective facets on the diamond. After the main facets have been polished by the cutter, the final facets are polished onto the diamond by a "Brillianteer." The facets added are the upper and lower girdle facets. 5. Final Inspection/Quality Control: The finale step concerns cleaning the diamond in acids and examining the diamond to see if it fits the demands of the manufacturer. If necessary, the stone can be sent back to the polishers for some touching up.
  • What is a channel setting ?
    The stones in a channel setting are set between two metal bands. This setting typically features a thicker band in order to promote the channel. The mounting can be either half set or fully set. Some may find the channel setting to be a bit low profile, due to the fact the diamonds are not as noticeable and eye-catching as in the prong setting. Advantages : Nevertheless, this low profile benefits in protecting the diamonds against cracks and chips. Another advantage of the channelset is the smooth and comfortable ring will be more convenient for women with an active lifestyle. Disadvantages : Channel set rings are difficult to clean and repair. These type of rings may get scratched easier because of the gold showing more than a prong setting. The diamonds that are set in channel-set ring are made specially to fit in-between the two bands and therefore challenging to find the same size stone to repair damage. Occasionally, reparations to this type of ring can cause for the other older diamonds to loosen.
  • What is a prong setting?
    The most common type of ring setting is the prong setting. Here, the diamonds are held with prongs or claws, at equal distances around the diamond. With this design the customer receives a ring where the diamonds are showing the most, unlike the channel setting. Advantages: The thin prongs are barely seen, and allow the maximum amount of light to both enter and leave the diamond. This provides for more fire, sparkle and brilliance than any other type of setting. Rings with a prong setting are very easy to clean from dirt and grime. Disadvantages: Very seldome, the prongs on the ring can snag on clothing. This only occurs if the prongs are damaged.
  • What is a pavé setting?
    Achieve continuous sparkle with the pavé setting, where diamonds are set very closely to eachother and have a minimum visibility of the miniscule prongs that are holding the stones. Pavé settings come in all different designs, whether modern or art-deco that incorporate pavé-set diamonds. There are various pavé setting designs: Micro-pavé: these settings contain very small diamonds, with a carat weight of less than 0.01ct per stone. French pavé: in this setting the diamond-setter hand cuts tiny V-shapes into the metal of the ring to set the stones. This design is made for gold to be seen as little as possible and the diamonds to shine and sparkle as much as possible. As a result of the V-shapes, the metal part of the ring (18kt gold) will even have a sparkly effect to the ring. Along with this effect, the french pavé setting features less visible metal between each diamond. Petite pavé: these settings are very similar to the original pavé setting. Rather than using large prongs (which are used in the original classic pavé), here the diamond-setter uses smaller prongs to make the diamonds even more visible. This design creats an alluring sparkle that continues along the shank of the ring. Advantages of the pavé setting: this setting gives more attention to the center stone in the ring. Also, there is a wide range of various designs the customer can choose from. From modern chic, to classic or a vintage design. The setting adds enormously to the ring's overall look, giving it brilliance and a feminine touch. Disadvantages: (re)sizing may be challenging, or even impossible with this style of setting, when the ring is half or fully set with diamonds.
  • What is a bezel setting?
    A bezel setting features a single ring of metal that goes completely around the entire circumference of the diamond. This setting holds the stone secure and tight in its place. Here, there are no prongs/claws. There are two forms of the bezel design: Full bezel setting: This setting completely holds the diamond in a custom-made thin metal rim that surrounds the outside part of the diamond. Partial bezel setting: In this design, the sides of the bezel are left open. This allows more light to enter the diamond, which results in reflection and leads to more brilliance and sparkle. Advantages of the bezel setting: This ring design offers security and durability. The diamond is safe in the ring, with little chance of risking damage or chips. Maintenance is almost effortless for the customer, since there are no prongs/claws to check or clean. The bezel setting is excellent for customers with an active lifestyle because of its durability. Rings that contain a bezel setting come in a wide range of designs: from modern chic, to classic or vintage. Comfortable to wear because of its smooth feel and may protect the diamond from damaging. On top of all these factors, the bezel design can hide visual flaws that a diamond may have. When inclusions or cleavages are close to the corners or edges of the diamond, they can be covered up by the metal part of the bezel setting. This makes it less noticeable to the naked, human eye. Disadvantages: The bezel setting can make the diamond look smaller in the rings because of the metal rim being on the diamond. This may also make the brilliance of the diamond less dominant. The design also prevents light from entering the stone, which results in less reflection and less sparkle of the stone.
  • What is a bar setting?
    The bar setting consists of vertical metal bars that hold the stone in its place, which makes the ring look minimalistic yet beautiful. The design makes sure enough light enters the diamond which results in a stable and secure yet beautiful setting. Advantages: The diamonds are more visible in a bar setting, as they are only obscured by two sides of long, thin metal parts. There is a smaller chance the ring would snag on clothes or objects now that the diamonds sit on an even level together with the metal bars. Disadvantages: Resizing a ring with a bar setting can be problematic and sometimes even impossible.
  • What is a milgrain setting?
    The jewellery-detail technique called 'milgrain' comes from the French word 'mille-grain', which literally means "a thousand grains". The milgrain design consists of a line of tiny beads along the edge of a section of the ring, The design adds an antique touch to your jewel and suggests craftsmanship. The adoration for this style of setting peaked during the Art Deco era and today it is becoming more popular than ever as a result of its particular and exclusive touch. For customers who are looking to stand out, this setting makes your ring eye-catching and adds personality with its vintage feel.
  • What is a solitaire?
    A solitaire refers to any piece of jewel with a single diamond or gemstone. The solitaire setting for a ring is still a beautiful classic, showcasing the charm of the single stone. The most popular settings for solitaire rings include the prong, bezel, cathedral and tension setting. The prong setting has a very big advantage for entering light in the diamond which creates reflection and causes sparkle. The bezel setting offers security and durability, while still creating a modern and sophisticated look. The metal of the band completely surrounds the diamond, following the diamond's shape. The cathedral setting is made out of six prongs and allows the diamond or gemstone to still be visible while holding the stone in its place. The tension setting makes the diamond or gemstone look as if its floating inbetween the two metal strips that are holding the stone. Moreover, there is no metal underneath the stone, which aids in maintaining the diamond by cleaning it.
  • What is a halo?
    A halo mounting features a collection of pavé diamonds encircling the center diamond. The luster from all the diamonds create an illusion of a single but notable diamond. For clients with a smaller budget, the halo mounting optically enlarges the diamond by surrounding it with small diamonds. Whether colourless or yellow diamonds, or even colorful gemstones (such as sapphire, ruby or emerald); everything is possible with the halo mounting. A high-carat center diamond looks eye-catchingly big in a halo setting. And a quarter-, third- or half-carat diamond can look as much as a half a carat larger. This model includes several types of halo's: pavé diamond halo, double floating halo, floral halo, split shank halo and more. This is a split shank halo ring with a pear shape diamond in the central, pairing a classic thin half set pavé eternity band with small round diamonds. An exquisite combination of a pear shape engagement ring and a matching wedding band. When wanting to customize an engagement ring, the easiest way is by altering the shank (band of the ring). With the split shank the band of the ring divides in to two on either side of the center diamond, leaving a tiny gap between the two bands.
  • What is the pavé style?
    Pavé engagement rings feature small diamonds, or other gems, around the band (next to the central stone), enhancing the ring with more brilliance. The pavé setting is an all-time favourite for many women because of its feminine and dainty appearance. Pavé settings are safe for everyday wear, the stones are held tightly while the prongs are still very secured as they tend to not wear out or break as easily as larger, standard prongs. The design comes in various options: micro-pavé, French pavé, petite pavé and pavo halo engagement rings.
  • What is a trilogy?
    A trilogy ring features a cluster of three stones set on one band, right next to eachother. Apart from being mesmerisingly beautiful, they also have a meaning to the way their set. The most popular theme that most trilogy (or three stone) rings follow the theory of past, future and present. As they represent the three most important phases or times of your life, the centre stone will usually be bigger than its sidestones, representing the present. Regardless of this, you will find two different variations of the trilogy ring: 1. Where the centre diamond or gemstone is the biggest from all three 2.Where all three stones are the same size or weight Often, these type of rings will feature a gemstone in the centre and two diamonds on its side. Make it colourful and choose two gemstones instead, to fit next to your diamond in your trilogy ring.
  • What is a tension setting ring?
    The tension setting ring does not involve prongs or claws, the stone is held in its place with tension between two halves of the band. The diamond is safely and securely placed in the ring with the help of invisible grooves and spring loading. This style of setting gives the impression and visual effect of the ring floating on its own. Resizing a tension ring will be either very difficult or in some cases, impossible.
  • What is a twisted/swirl ring?
    In the twisted or swirl style ring, the prong setting and band of the ring wrap around either side, surrounding and embracing the center stone, creating a modern swirl effect. This type of setting can romantically symbolise two halves becoming one. It can have a solitaire or a side stone (with halo) design. Featuring the intriguing and fluid movement, this style is not common and will definitely stand out from all rings. Tension and twisted settings are both applied in this beautiful solitaire diamond ring.
  • What is a baroque ring?
    A baroque engagement ring will feature elaborate and decorative details to its design, pointing out craftsmanship. These nature-inspired rings, with a vintage touch to it, are usually combined with cluster, pavé or halo styles to complete their look and create a larger looking central diamond. This style of engagement rings are suitable for costumers who are looking for that extra special sparkle, maximalist style and uniqueness.
  • What is a diana?
    The diana ring refers to Lady Diana's sapphire engagement ring.

Sapphires, emeralds and rubies precious gemstones are often used in fine jewellery.
  • What is an art-deco ring?
    Art deco (art décoratif) rings recall an era of finesse and allure, characterized by their geometric patterns, sharp angles and abstract design with an eye to detail. Not only were diamonds used in these breathtaking rings, also colourful gemstones were used to contrast the design of the ring. The Art Deco period encompasses the 1920s and 1930s, where brooches and dress clips were used as an everyday accessory. Materials such as platinum, silver and 18kt white gold were used to create these fine, yet striking, jewels. Diamonds, sapphires, emerals and rubies were used for their bold and noticeable colours, while bright stones such as jade, coral, lapis lazuli and turquoise were used to make an even more statement jewel. Onyx and enamel were typical and helped recognize an art deco ring, bracelet, necklace, earring or brooch. Diamonds in art deco jewels were old-cuts and the most popular shapes used in rings were round, emerald and baguette shaped diamonds.
  • What is a side stone ring?
    The side stone engagement rings feature complementing diamonds or gemstones, which helps create more fire and brilliance to the center diamond or gemstone. The side stones can be any cut or colour, either matching or contrasting with the center piece.
