Buying Tips

Cut

A diamond’s brilliance is primarily determined by its cut. An exquisitely cut diamond with perfectly symmetrical and aligned facets will reflect light optimally, resulting in unmatched brilliance. Immense expertise is needed to create facets with perfect symmetry that maximises light performance and increases the signature sparkle of a diamond. All our diamonds are (Ex.Ex.Ex.)Plus diamonds.

Buying Tip

The cut is especially important for princess, oval and pear-shaped diamonds. With these shapes, an excellent cut will ensure a consistent, stunning sparkle and an even distribution of carat weight.

Carat

Each carat can be eventually subdivided into “100 points” which allows extremely precise measurements to the 100th decimal place. It’s worth noticing that certain diamonds are cut exclusively with an emphasis on weight. They may look bigger but at the cost of brilliance and symmetry. At Divine Solitaires, we commend seeking a balance between cut and carat weight to guarantee a symmetrical dazzling diamond. Our diamonds weigh between 0.10 carat and 2.99 carat.

Buying Tip

When buying a diamond, choose a carat weight not just on the basis of size but also cut grade as it strongly affects the quality of your diamond

Colour

D E F G H I J K

Diamonds exist on a scale of several shades, ranging from colourless to light yellow. These subtle differences are then graded on a colour scale from D (Colourless) to Z (Light Yellow).

Our diamonds range from D to K.

Buying Tip

If you are planning to set your diamond in a yellow or rose gold jewellery, it is a good bet to use “near colourless” diamonds as the warm colour of the metal makes the yellowness in the diamond a little less noticeable. But if you want the purest white diamond, select one that’s “colourless” and set it in white gold or platinum.

Clarity

As we have already seen, diamonds are formed by tremendous heat and pressure deep within the earth. This totally organic process eventually means that nearly all diamonds will contain certain internal inclusions or surface blemishes. Diamonds that are devoid of such characteristics are considered to have a higher clarity, which ranges from FL (Flawless) to I (Included). Our diamonds range from IF to S12.

Buying Tip

If you want to stay assured about your diamond about its stunning brilliance, a clarity grade of VVS2 or higher is recommended for all diamond shapes

Diamond Anatomy

While every diamond is unique, all diamonds share certain structural features. A diamond’s anatomy, or its basic structure, determines its proportions, brilliance, dispersion and scintillation. Each part of the diamond has a specific name, and having a basic understanding of how each part contributes to the diamond as a whole will help you find your perfect diamond.

A diamond is comprised of the eight main components. They are Diameter, Table, Crown, Table Spread, Girdle, Pavilion, Depth, and Culet. Below is a brief description of each part of a diamond and its location.

  • Table
  • Girdle
  • Pavilion
  • Culet
  • Crown

Table :

The largest polished facet located on the top of the diamond.

Girdle :

The very edge (widest edge) of the diamond where the crown and pavilion meet.

Pavilion :

The bottom part of a diamond extending from the girdle down to the culet.

Culet :

The small or pointed facet at the very bottom of the diamond.

Crown :

The top part of a diamond extending from the table to the girdle. The crown is made up of bezel facets (crown mains), star facets, upper girdle facets (upper halves), and a table facet.

Ethical Sourcing

Ethically sourced through widely acceptable Kimberley Process

  • Heat: Up to 900 – 1300 Degree Celsius
  • Pressure: 45 to 60 kilo bars
  • Depth: Up to 150 to 200 km
  • Time: A billion years ago

The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) is a process established in 2003 to prevent “conflict diamonds” from entering the mainstream rough- diamond market by United Nations

General Assembly Resolution 55/56, following recommendations in the Flower Report. The process was set up “to ensure that diamond purchases were not financing violence by rebel movements and their allies seeking to undermine legitimate governments.”

Divine Solitaires’ Conflict-Free Diamond Policy

Divine Solitaires, along with the global diamond industry, has a zero-tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds. Through measures such as the Kimberley Process, which tracks diamonds from mine to market, the industry in partnership with governments, and non-governmental organizations, policies diamond exports to prevent the trade of illegal diamonds.

At Divine Solitaires, we only purchase diamonds through the largest and most respected suppliers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by the Kimberley Process. All our diamonds are warranted to be conflict free. If one of our suppliers was ever found to be in violation of that process, we would immediately serve that relationship. We will continue to support and promote any process that works to uphold legitimacy in the diamond trade.

Beyond 4CR

Divine Solitaires’ diamonds are carefully gauged under parameters which go beyond the classic 4Cs.

Lustre

Lustre as an inclusion is primarily a hazy inclusion in the diamond that appears white or grey in colour.

This haziness affects the brilliance of a diamond. All our solitaires are excellent in lustre.

Overtones

Any colour in a diamond that is “greyed down” is considered as an overtone. The predominant natural “yellow” colour that one sees in a diamond is caused by nitrogen, a trace element. Moreover, the brown tint is caused by structural irregularities in a diamond.

Ultimate Light Performance

Light Performance gets calculated on the basis of superior brilliance, extraordinary fire, and mesmerizing sparkles. We have adopted a highly advanced level of technology and have successfully added an extra dimension of vision and accuracy to a diamond’s traditional 4Cs’ measuring and grading system. This light performance test precisely checks the amount of light bounced back from the diamond, ensuring that truly brightest is the best.

Fire

Fire refers to the scattering of light into colours of visible spectrum (colours of the rainbow).

Brilliance can be gauged by the amount of return of white light from a diamond after it is cut and

Sparkle

Sparkle or scintillation is a combination of brilliance and fire.

Fluorescence

Fluorescence refers to the tendency of a diamond to emit a coloured glow when subjected to ultraviolet light. When the source of the ultraviolet light is removed, the diamond will stop fluorescing. Medium to very strong fluorescence will make a stone appear oily or milky. Fluorescence also affects colour grades of a diamond.
