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.

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.
A four-prong setting is a popular technique that uses four prongs or claws to hold the gem in place. A 4-prong setting can be a classic, cathedral, contour, knife, border or trellis setting. The advantage of a 4-claw setting is that it holds the gemstone securely while still allowing maximum light to shine through. Provided that the prongs are thick enough of course. Another advantage is that the setting is relatively simple and therefore appears a bit more minimalist than the settings with six or eight prongs. When choosing a setting method for a jewel, it is important to consider factors such as the size and shape of the gemstone, the style of the jewel, and the jewel's intended use.
