Natural diamonds formed deep in the earth under extreme pressure and high temperature as long as three billion years ago.
A lab-created diamond is “grown” inside a lab using cutting-edge technology that replicates the natural diamond growing process. The result is a man-made diamond that is chemically, physically, and optically the same as those grown beneath the Earth’s surface.
If you would like to measure your ring size immediately, print out our simple Ring Sizing Guide. Before you print the guide, be sure to check that page scaling is set to “none” on your print dialog box.
Use the Ring Sizing Guide to measure a ring you have at home by placing the ring over the size circles until it matches the inside edge of your ring. Make sure the ring you use fits the exact finger (and hand) the you are purchasing the ring for.
To create your own ring sizer, start by cutting out the ring sizer. Wrap the ring sizer snugly around the widest part of the intended finger so that the numbers are visible to you, and insert the pointed end through the slit you made in the sizer. Make note of the number that lines up with the slit, this is your ring size!
All our diamonds are independently certified from one of the world’s leading labs. Always ensure you are purchasing an independently certificated diamond to validate its quality, as many diamond retailers self-certify.
Choose between a yellow, rose or white gold setting, or opt for a platinum design for added durability. A yellow gold setting lends a more traditional, vintage look to your jewellery while white gold or platinum helps to enhance and magnify the brilliance of a central diamond. All our gold settings are in 18k carat gold, allowing for an ideal balance between quality of colour and durability.
A diamond’s clarity refers to the presence of impurities on and within the stone. When a rough stone is extracted from carbon deep beneath the earth, tiny traces of natural elements are almost always trapped inside. These elements are called flaws or inclusions because they are formed naturally and are unique to each stone.
Color is the natural color visible in a diamond and does not change over time. Colorless diamonds allow more light to pass through than a colored diamond, releasing more sparkle and fire.
The cut refers to the angles and proportions of a diamond. The cut of a diamond—its depth and width, and the uniformity of the facets—determines its beauty. The skill with which a diamond is cut determines how well it reflects and refracts light.
Carat weight is one of the fundamental factors in determining the price of a diamond. Opting for a 0.90ct diamond can offer 10-20% better value than a 1ct diamond of the same quality and looks almost the same in size.
You do not need to select the highest quality to get something that is equally as beautiful. Colour G still looks white to the eye and can offer 20-40% better value than D. In most cases, there are no visible imperfections in VS2 diamonds and are priced lower than VVS2 upward. To the naked eye, there is little difference between very good and excellent cuts. Fancy shape diamonds also offer better value compared to round brilliants.
A carat is the unit used to measure a diamond’s weight. One carat equals 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams. Although carat weight and the size of a diamond are related, the carat does not directly measure diamond size.
