Diamonds

Diamond, one of the rarest materials in nature, is a mineral and the hardest crystalline substance, natural and transparent, that can be found.

It is also the only precious stone composed of only one element, “carbon” in its purest form.
Each diamond is the result of an extraordinary journey, which transforms this element into the most appreciated and sought-after gem in the world.

It forms hundreds of kilometers below the earth’s surface. Extreme pressures and temperatures transform carbon fragments into diamonds which, following an incredible journey inside a volcano, finally reach the surface and then disperse and are found even hundreds of kilometers away in river beds or beaches.

Your diamond is unique and particular… no two diamonds are alike, although each diamond has common characteristics, determined by four factors defined as “the 4C’s of the diamond” Carat weight (carat), Cut (cut), Clarity (purity), Color (color).

ALL YOU SHOULD KNOW:
THE “4C”

THE CARAT

s expressed in carats; the carat corresponds to a fifth of a gram and is in turn divided into 4 grains or 100 points.

THE CLARITY

refers to the presence of imperfections in a scale from IF – Internally Flawless (the highest level of purity) to PIQUÈ (when imperfections are visible to the naked eye).

THE COLOR

refers to the shades of hue that a stone possesses; from colorless to yellow, with decreasing symbol: D – E – F – G – H – I to Z.

THE CUT

refers to the shape and arrangement of the facets and angles: the classic cut is the brilliant round diamond that better reflects the light than any other shape.
