Documented on the old, crumbling pages of time lies the centuries-old tale of a stone enriched with enchantment and riddled with magic. The diamond was believed to have supernatural powers. Powers that could banish any poison, eradicate any pestilence, and halt any enemy. Its sparkle and fire has inspired the imagination for thousands of years. Because of the paranormal abilities it was believed to possess, it became a symbol of trust and a token of the banishment of vain fears. Accounts of the diamond’s use in jewelry, specifically engagement and wedding rings, date back to the Middle Ages. Wearing one of these startlingly beautiful stones emblematized the sanctity of the marriage covenant it sealed.

The tradition carries on. While the ancient wearers of diamonds were mainly rich and wealthy royals, the privilege of owning a diamond today is enjoyed by any who seek the rarity and allurement of a stone with so much history.

GRADING DIAMONDS


No two diamonds are exactly alike. The worth and quality of each one differs, and today, we differentiate the quality of a diamond based on the international grading standard called "The 4c's": Color, Cut, Clarity, and Carat Weight.
