Specialists give the jewel a high gloss with quickly rotating brushes. Our polliser is therefore a dedicated professional with a perfect eye for detail.
Cushion cuts were at the height of their popularity during most of the nineteenth century. The basis for the cushion-cut is the Old Mine Cut, a square cut with rounded corners, a high crown, smallish table and large facets. The modern cushion cut has a square shape consisting of 64 facets which are placed in an angle to maximize depth of the gemstone (note the difference with the modern brilliant cut, which maximizes the reflection of light towards the eye).
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.
With Side Stones
The setting with side stones is a popular style for gemstone jewelry, known as a "solitaire with accents". It typically features a larger center gemstone, which is the focal point of the jewel, and smaller gemstones on one or either side of the center stone, often set into the band itself. The center gemstone can be a diamond or any other type of gemstone, depending on personal preference and budget. The smaller accent stones are often diamonds or other precious stones, and can add sparkle and visual interest to the overall design. This type of setting can be a beautiful choice for an engagement ring or other special occasion, as it creates a classic, elegant look that is both timeless and versatile.
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.
