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.
The "two stone setting" or "toi et moi setting" is a specific type of jewelry setting where two stones are placed next to each other, often with a little bit of space between them. The name "toi et moi" is French for "you and me", which refers to the symbolism of the two stones placed together. This type of setting became popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was often used for love rings and other jewelry. The two stones in the setting can be different shapes and sizes, although they are roughly the same size. A variant of the toi and moi setting is the "infinity setting", where the stones are placed on the equivalence of a loop resembling the infinity symbol. This can also be seen as a symbolic way of expressing the closeness of two people. The two-stone setting can be used with different types of gemstones, but diamonds are the most likely because of their hardness and durability.
Bezel setting is a technique used to set gemstones in jewelry such as rings, earrings and pendants. With a bezel setting, a thin strip of precious metal is beaten pushed around the gemstone. This protects the gemstone and ensures that it stays firmly in place. A bezel setting is a popular choice when setting gemstones because it protects the stone better than other settings. There are different types of cast or bezel settings, including full bezel settings, half bezel settings, and open bezel settings. There are several advantages of using a bezel setting for a jewel, including: Security: A bezel setting is one of the most secure settings for a gemstone, as the precious metal rim holds the stone firmly in place and protects it from damage or loss. Durability: The preciouis metal rim of a bezel setting also adds to the durability of the jewelry piece, as it protects the edges of the stone from chipping or scratching. Versatility: Bezel settings can be used with a variety of gemstone shapes and sizes, making them a versatile option for jewelry designers. Style: Bezel settings can create a unique and stylish look for a piece of jewelry, as the golden or platinum rim can be crafted into different shapes and designs to complement the stone. Light reflection: Depending on the style of the bezel setting, it can also enhance the brilliance and sparkle of the gemstone by reflecting light off the gold or platinum and back onto the stone. Overall, a bezel setting can provide both functional and aesthetic benefits to a piece of jewelry, making it a popular choice for many jewelers and jewelry wearers.
