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.

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 Castel Setting
Castle setting is a setting technique similar to pavé, but used for gemstones that have nearly the same diameter as the material they are set into. The sides of the stones are visible and the gold or platinum is finished into a lace-like pattern. This pattern looks like the battlements of a castle. Although it can be used to set stones that are wider than the precious metal, this should be avoided to protect the thin sides of the gems.In most cases the diameter will be one or two tenths of a milimeter less than the width of the gold or platinum.
Cushion cuts were at the height of their popularity during most of the nineteenth century. The basis for the cushion-cut is the Old Mine Cut, a square cut with rounded corners, a high crown, smallish table and large facets. The modern cushion cut has a square shape consisting of 64 facets which are placed in an angle to maximize depth of the gemstone (note the difference with the modern brilliant cut, which maximizes the reflection of light towards the eye).

As a diamond dealer and as a studio active in the multicultural Jewish quarter in Antwerp, we want to make a positive contribution to society. We think that if you want to unite the world, it's best to start at the beginning. That two individuals choose us for the creation of their wedding rings, the symbol for the ultimate promise of loyalty and commitment between two people, is therefore, each time again, a great honor for us.
