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.
A pavé is a style of jewelry or jewelry setting in which small diamonds or other gemstones are embedded into the metal base of a piece of jewelry, with the surface of the piece of jewelry covered with gemstones in an even pattern. The term "pavé" comes from the French word for paved, which refers to the way the gems are set closely together, giving the appearance of a paved street. A pavé setting is often used in engagement rings, wedding rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets. It gives a beautiful sparkle and a luxurious look to the piece of jewelry. A pavé setting is a delicate and labour-intensive technique in which the gemstones are carefully set to make the piece of jewelery look as beautiful as possible. It is important to know that the gemstones in a pavé setting are very small and therefore more fragile than larger gemstones. It is important to properly maintain the jewelry with pavé settings and to have it checked regularly by a jeweler to prevent gemstones from falling out.
The zigzag pavé setting is a popular technique used in jewelry making to set small diamonds or gemstones closely together, creating a continuous sparkling surface on the piece. Some of the advantages of a zigzag pavé setting include: Increased sparkle: The zigzag pavé setting maximizes the amount of light that enters and reflects off the diamonds or gemstones, resulting in a dazzling, glittering effect that catches the eye. Enhanced durability: The zigzag pattern of the pavé setting creates a stronger, more secure setting for the diamonds or gemstones, reducing the likelihood of them falling out or becoming loose. Versatile design: The zigzag pavé setting can be used in a variety of jewelry designs, from classic to modern, and can be adapted to suit different gemstones, precious metals, and styles. Customizable: The zigzag pavé setting can be customized to fit different shapes and sizes of diamonds or gemstones, making it a versatile and adaptable option for jewelry designers. Comfortable to wear: The zigzag pavé setting creates a smooth, flat surface on the jewelry, making it comfortable to wear and reducing the risk of snagging on clothing or other objects. Overall, the zigzag pavé setting is a popular choice for jewelry designers and consumers alike, offering a range of benefits and a stunning, eye-catching effect.

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.
