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.
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 pear is a brilliant-cut diamond in the shape of a teardrop: a single point and rounded end. It’s a popular choice for a variety of jewellery, most notably pendants and earrings. By choosing an elongated pear shape, the lenght of the fingers is accentuated. For a traditional pear-shaped diamond, the length-to-width ratio should be around 1.5:1.

Your custom-made jewel

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.

Who do I work best with? Who is reliable? Who acts transparently and ethically? These are questions one can ask oneself when one arrives in the diamond district at Antwerp Central Station. Feel free to visit us without obligation for an informative introduction. We are happy to introduce you to the world of gold and diamonds.

An ethically responsible
Today we realize, you as a consumer and we as a designer, that by buying or trading we can contribute to, or not contribute to, systems or organizations that do not act ethically correctly. The world is of course more complex than how some politicians and journalists want to portray it. We choose to help unite. As a diamond dealer and as a studio active in the multicultural Jewish quarter in Antwerp, we want to make a positive contribution to society. We think that if you want to unite the world, it's best to start at the beginning. That two individuals choose us for the creation of their wedding rings, the symbol for the ultimate promise of loyalty and commitment between two people, is therefore, each time again, a great honor for us.
With more than thirty years of experience, you are in good hands with us when it comes to handmade diamond jewelry.
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.
