Collection: Brilliant jewelry

"Diamonds are a girl's best friend" sang Marilyn Monroe.

This gem enchants us with its special fire and brilliance.
General information

The diamond is a unique gemstone with special properties. It is the hardest material with a hardness of 10 on the Mohs scale, has a special fire and fascinates with its brilliance.

As well as the well-known white diamond, which is graded using the 4 Cs (colour, cut, clarity and carat), there are also beautiful coloured diamonds and black diamonds.

For more information on the 4 Cs, please visit the Diamonds page.
Coloured Diamonds

The coloured diamonds are called fancy diamonds. These colours can be all colour varieties like brown, yellow, pink, purple to very vivid hues like red, orange, green and blue.

Experts at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) estimate that only 1 carat out of every 10,000 carats of cut stone has a fancy colour. An intense colour is even less likely.

Basically, the more intense the colour, the more expensive it is.

These naturally coloured diamonds are very rare and therefore expensive. There are also natural diamonds whose colour has been altered, these are much cheaper and are labelled "treated".

The most common diamond cut is the brilliant cut. There are other fascinating shapes such as the baguette cut, heart cut, oval cut, cushion cut, princess cut, teardrop cut, etc.

Setting types:

The stone can be set in many different ways.
The prong setting

In a prong setting, the diamond is set in a closed setting. The stone is set in a recess and the protruding metal is pressed over the stone.
The prong setting

In a prong setting, the diamond lies outside the jewellery and is held in place by 4 or 6 fine prongs.
The polished diamond

This is where the stone is set directly into the jewellery without a direct setting. This is most suitable for smaller stones.
The pavé setting

The name comes from the French and means "paving stones". In a pavé setting, the diamonds are set very close together and the piece of jewellery is paved with stones.
