Diamonds: The Perfect Gift
Diamonds are the most precious and valuable of all gems. Rare, incredibly brilliant, they have a unique inner fire, rainbow sparkle, and they are available in a range of sizes, weights, and grades. From small micropavé settings to dramatic solitaires, diamonds offer a gift, or self-purchase, to suite any budget.
Pure white diamonds remain by far the most popular, but thanks to modern technology, colored diamonds are more plentiful and available than they once were. When it comes to shape, the round brilliant-cut remains the all-time favorite, although princess and cushion cuts are fast growing in popularity.
The shape of a diamond is a personal choice. Keep in mind, it is the cut grade that defines how well a diamond’s facets interact with light. Diamonds are renowned for their brilliance and sparkle. It takes precise artistry and workmanship to fashion a stone so its proportions, symmetry, and polish deliver the magnificent return of light.
Diamonds are available in many affordable prices and mountings from platinum, karat gold, or sterling silver, to contemporary metals such as titanium, tungsten, or stainless steel. The gift of diamond jewelry is a perfect token of affection, a fitting symbol to celebrate the holidays, or commemorate any special occasion.
