It has often been said, “Diamonds are Forever”. The timeless appeal of a diamond is a testament to its durability, its beauty, rarity and strength. It is a fitting symbol of love and affection. Let us offer you and your dear ones some guidelines to help you choose the perfect diamond for your exquisite engagement ring.
Does your heart sing to the tune of light that reflects out from a Round Brilliant Cut Diamond? Perhaps your contemporary sensibility attracts you to the Princess Cut, which is square in shape, but brilliant like the Round? Or do you love the elegance of a Marquise shaped diamond that marks your presence everywhere. Each diamond shape has its attributes be it a Pear shape, Oval shape, Heart shape, Cushion shape, Emerald, Asscher or Radiant, we have it all, but shape preference is primarily a subjective statement of style that reflects the personality of the person who wears it.
What is a Diamond?
Technically a diamond is a carbon that has been under pressure for thousands of years. Most natural diamonds are formed at high pressure high-temperature conditions existing at depths of 140 to 190 kilometers (87 to 120 mi) in the Earth mantle. Carbon – containing minerals provide the carbon source and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to 3.3 billion years.
