STONES

The finished piece of jewellery is only as beautiful as the components, used to manufacture it. It is essential for us to use only the finest quality stones that make female beauty shine and give life to fantastic plays of colour.

DIAMONDS - are a girl’s best friend! Diamond is the hardest mineral on earth, and this, combined with its exceptional lustre and brilliant fire, has made it the most highly prized of all gems.

RUBY - Rubies are regarded as talismans of good fortune in love and finance. Their simple elegant power is perfect for any sophisticated spirit.

SAPPHIRE - Reflecting the colour of the sky, Sapphires are considered a symbol of wisdom and prosperity.

TANZANITE - Upon its discovery in Africa in the 1960's Tanzanite virtually transformed the jewellery world. With rich deep purples and blues to match the most precious of sapphires. Exclusively found in Africa, wanted all over the world.

EMERALD - The Gem of eternal Spring. Emeralds have been cherished since the dawn of civilization. Records stretching back 3000 years note the fascination with which people viewed this marvellous green gem.

The 4 C's

Cut - When we speak of cut we are more interested in the proportions of the diamond as opposed to its shape (Round Brilliant, Marquise, Pear, Princess, etc.) Every diamond regardless of its shape gets it brilliancy and scintillation by cutting and polishing the diamond facets to allow the maximum amount of light that enters through its top to be reflected and dispersed back through its top. A correctly cut, "well made", stone is pictured in diagram 1. As you can see if the angles are correct the light that enters is dispersed properly back through the diamond's top facets. When a stone is cut too shallow  or too deep the light that enters through the top is allowed to escape through the diamond's bottom and does not allow the maximum beauty of the diamond to be realized. 

Colour - rates the body color in white diamonds from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow)

Clarity - The clarity of a diamond is determined by the amount and location of flaws, or blemishes, in the diamond when viewed under 10 power (10x) magnification

Carat Weight - One carat is divided into 100 "points," so that a diamond of 75 points weights .75 carats. The carat-weight of a diamond is the easiest measurement to determine. Most importantly, two diamonds can be of equal carat-weight, but their value can differ greatly due to their cut, color, and clarity.
