It consists of 58 facets and the shape is optimized to reflected the light entering the stone through the top (table).

Because of the traditional and romantic meaning it has as a symbol of love and connection we only sell natural diamonds. They have a higher value and are exclusive because natural diamonds are formed in the earth under unique conditions and are very rare, which increases their exclusivity and value. Natural diamond forms deep inside the earth as a result of tectonic pressures 100s of kilometers below the earth's surface. They, as a consequence of their growth environment, are varied and unique. Despite being more pure than other natural crystals, they contain many different impurities incorporated from the environment during the long, slow growth process. Natural diamonds also often have a unique and unpredictable brilliance and color. Diamond producers we are working with also do everything they can to mine and process their diamonds in a responsible and ethical manner.
An entourage or halo setting is a jewelers technique in which a central gemstone is surrounded by smaller stones. They light up the whole and accentuate the central stone. That is why they are sometimes called accent stones. This setting is usually used in rings, earrings and pendants, where the central stone is usually the largest and the smaller stones around it are set in the shape of the central gemstone. This can be circular, oval, square, rectangular or any fantasy shape. The gemstones can be of the same kind or can have different colors or origins depending on the taste of the customer and the availability of the gemstones. An entourage setting is often chosen for engagement rings and wedding rings, because it gives an extra dimension to the center diamond or gemstone. It creates a beautiful sparkle and an impressive look to the ring or pendant, making it look even more impressive.
pavé in line
A consecutive pavé setting is a popular technique in jewelry making where small diamonds or other gemstones are set closely together in a row, creating a continuous surface of sparkle. Here are some advantages of a consecutive pavé setting on a jewel: Enhanced brilliance: The close proximity of the diamonds or gemstones in a consecutive pavé setting allows for more light to reflect and refract, resulting in a dazzling display of sparkle and brilliance. Increased durability: The closely set stones in a pavé setting provide added support and protection for the center stone or main focal point of the jewelry piece, making it more durable and less prone to damage. Versatility: A consecutive pavé setting can be used on a variety of jewelry pieces, including rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, making it a versatile and popular choice in jewelry design. Aesthetic appeal: A consecutive pavé setting can add a sense of luxury and sophistication to a jewelry piece, while also creating a subtle, understated effect that enhances the beauty of the overall design. Customizable: A consecutive pavé setting can be customized to fit a wide range of styles and preferences, with options for different sizes, shapes, and colors of diamonds or gemstones, as well as variations in the number and spacing of stones in the setting.
The pear is a brilliant-cut diamond in the shape of a teardrop: a single point and rounded end. It’s a popular choice for a variety of jewellery, most notably pendants and earrings. By choosing an elongated pear shape, the lenght of the fingers is accentuated. For a traditional pear-shaped diamond, the length-to-width ratio should be around 1.5:1.
