The modern brilliant cut diamond is without a shadow of a doubt the most popular shape available. It consists of 58 facets and the shape is optimized to reflected the light entering the stone through the top (table). The cut surfaced in the mid 17th century and counted only 17 facets in the crown. Later, a Venetian cutter called Vincent Peruzzi, improved the shape to 33 facets in the crown.
VS1 - Very Slightly Included 1
VS1 diamonds contain minor internal characteristics/inclusions which are difficult to observe when examined under 10x magnification.
G - Near Colourless/ Rare White
Only when these diamonds are held next to a master stone of higher color grade, can a slight color be detected. Otherwise color is nealry indiscernible. Although these diamonds are still rare, they are slightly less expensive and are considered a good value. In Scan. D.N. G diamonds are called Top Wesselton and has a value of 1,5-1,99 on the electronic caloriemeter.
Tablesize between 52 and 53% or between 63 and 66%, Crown height between 11 and 11.5% or between 16.5 and 18%, Pavilion depth between 41.5 and 42.5% or 45%
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.
The word "solitaire" refers to the fact that only one stone is placed in the setting. The solitaire setting is therefore the most sober setting of all. It gives a simple and classic look. If you want all the attention on your gemstone, this setting is the most appropriate. There are several types of solitaire settings, including the tiffany setting, which has a high setting that protects the stone and increases the brilliance of the stone, and the cathedral setting, which features metal arches that hold the stone. A solitaire setting can therefore be performed with prongs or claws, but the diamond or gemstone can also be bezel set in a pot or case or directly in the plate or metal. This is not performed by our master goldsmith but by our specialized solitaire setter. Yes, even the typesetting itself is also subdivided into all kinds of specializations. If you want your precious gemstone to be processed into a ring, pendant, earring or bracelet with the greatest craftsmanship, then you choose a workshop with more than thirty years of experience in the middle of the Antwerp diamond district.
Bezel setting is a technique used to set gemstones in jewelry such as rings, earrings and pendants. With a bezel setting, a thin strip of precious metal is beaten pushed around the gemstone. This protects the gemstone and ensures that it stays firmly in place. A bezel setting is a popular choice when setting gemstones because it protects the stone better than other settings. There are different types of cast or bezel settings, including full bezel settings, half bezel settings, and open bezel settings. There are several advantages of using a bezel setting for a jewel, including: Security: A bezel setting is one of the most secure settings for a gemstone, as the precious metal rim holds the stone firmly in place and protects it from damage or loss. Durability: The preciouis metal rim of a bezel setting also adds to the durability of the jewelry piece, as it protects the edges of the stone from chipping or scratching. Versatility: Bezel settings can be used with a variety of gemstone shapes and sizes, making them a versatile option for jewelry designers. Style: Bezel settings can create a unique and stylish look for a piece of jewelry, as the golden or platinum rim can be crafted into different shapes and designs to complement the stone. Light reflection: Depending on the style of the bezel setting, it can also enhance the brilliance and sparkle of the gemstone by reflecting light off the gold or platinum and back onto the stone. Overall, a bezel setting can provide both functional and aesthetic benefits to a piece of jewelry, making it a popular choice for many jewelers and jewelry wearers.

In the Antwerp Jewish quarter
Antwerp is known for its diamonds industry and its Orthodox Jews. A few decades ago approximately eighty percent of Antwerp’s Jewish population used to make a living from the diamond industry. Apart from the gatherings in the diamond district and at the synagogue, Jews from Antwerp have lived mostly in different entities. The most recognizable community is that of the Haredi. After New York, London and Jerusalem, Antwerp is home to one of the largest ultra-Orthodox communities in the world.
