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.
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.
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.
The emerald cut, also referred to as step cut or table cut, is a basic/fundamental cut (like the brilliant cut). Unlike the facets in the brilliant cut, the facets of the emerald are cut in steps: stripe-like facets, which run parallel to the girdle. The corners are truncated, this is done to protect the stone. Sharp edges and points are vurnerable and risk getting chipped. The emerald cut is often used in colored stones because light is better reflected and color is intensified.
