SI1 - Slightly Included 1
SI1 diamonds contain noticeable internal characteristics/inclusions which are easy 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.
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.
The particular cut of a stone is mostly a pragmatic choice. The shape of the uncut, rough diamond gives the first indication of the most efficient cut/shape. Cutting a round stone out of an oblong rough diamond, would we very wastefull. A suitable shape for this situation is the marquise. Having roughly the same amount of facets as the brilliant cut, the marquise is more difficult to cut because of the fragile, sharp points.

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.
