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.
A consecutive gemstone setting is a jewelry design in which gemstones are placed next to each other in a row or band. This setting is often used for bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings and it's most popular for engagement rings and wedding rings. Sometimes the gems are placed so that their edges touch, creating a continuous pattern. This ensures a very sleek, elegant and polished appearance of the jewel. There are various techniques to make a contiguous gemstone setting, such as channel setting, pavé setting or bead setting. Pavé setting is the most common technique, in which small gemstones are placed closely together and secured with small claws or pins. Channel setting and bead setting are often used for larger gemstones and give a similar look, but with a slightly different construction. A contiguous gemstone setting can contain different types of gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies, emeralds, topazes, diamonds, and more. The design can range from simple and classic to intricate and detailed.
Channel setting is a popular technique used in jewelry making to secure gemstones in a row between two strips of metal. In a channel setting, the stones are set flush with the surface of the metal, creating a sleek and seamless look. The channel setting is commonly used for stones that are small and have uniform shapes, such as diamonds or sapphires. The metal strips that form the channel are usually made of gold, platinum, or another precious metal. One of the advantages of a channel setting is that it protects the gemstones from getting caught on clothing or other objects, as the stones are set securely within the metal channel. Additionally, because the stones are set flush with the metal, the overall look of the piece is very smooth and polished. However, it's important to note that a channel setting can make it difficult to clean the gemstones. Dirt and debris can accumulate within the channel over time, making it challenging to keep the stones looking their best. Overall, a channel setting is a popular and visually appealing technique for securing gemstones in jewelry.

For a unique event
Buying a piece of jewelry is often a unique event in itself. Without there being anything special to celebrate, you can also reward yourself with something very authentic and natural. Buying your own fine jewelry – or ‘self-gifting’ – means that you are probably a very independent person that can also take good care of yourself.

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.
