The princess cut is the second most popular diamond cut (the brilliant cut being the most popular). This cut, also referred to as a square modified brilliant, is relatively new. Unlike most square or oblong shapes, the facets are brilliant cut. Because of this, princess cut diamonds have more scintillation and fire than traditional step cut stones.
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.
"Nil fluorescence" refers to the absence of fluorescence in the gemstone. Fluorescence is a phenomenon where a material emits visible light when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. In the case of diamonds, they can emit a visible glow under UV light due to the presence of certain impurities or structural defects in the crystal lattice. Nil fluorescence in a diamond means that the stone does not fluoresce at all or exhibits a negligible fluorescence response under UV light. This characteristic is neither considered good nor bad, as fluorescence does not significantly affect a diamond's brilliance or sparkle in normal lighting conditions. Diamond fluorescence is a subjective preference, and some people prefer diamonds with no fluorescence as they believe it makes the stone appear more "pure" or colorless.

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.

A classic diamond piece with a modern twist
Many keep their diamond look simple, but there is a growing trend to mix up classics and make them less formal. Less formal means you can wear your diamonds “with a tennis shoe instead of a high heel”. For example, you can express your individuality with a diamond necklace by adding sparkle to daytime jewelry in a playful mix of chains, funky beads and talismans without looking too showy. Or you can stack diamond tennis bracelets with any number of other bracelets, beads, and leather thongs for a luxe bohemian look. Or wear denim jeans and a t-shirt togheter with classic diamond pieces. Yes, indeed rivières, tennis bracelets and ear studs can be worn dressed up or casually. If you buy contemporary yet classic jewelry everyone, regardless of age, will love wearing the pieces while it's remaining classic enough so they can be passed through generations while maintaining their value.

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.
