What Stone Speaks To You?

Diamonds

A Wonder Of Nature


The brilliant sparkle of a perfectly cut, flawless diamond is a wonder to behold. Diamonds are valued and classified based on the 4 C’s; colour, clarity, cut and carat. The most valuable diamonds are flawless and colourless. Natural fancy coloured diamonds are also highly prized because of their colour and rarity.

 

Diamonds with naturally occurring, evenly distributed inclusions are known as salt and pepper diamonds. The most popular cuts are rose-cut or brilliant cut, but more unusual cuts can be found from artisan stone cutters. Unique patterns and beautiful tones, salt and pepper diamonds are becoming ever more popular for their aesthetic qualities. 

Sapphires & Emeralds

The Cardinal Gems


Associated with royalty, romance and heavenly blessings, sapphires are amongst a small group of gemstones, classified since antiquity as ‘cardinal gems’, meaning they are prized above all others. Sapphires are made from the mineral corundum, the second hardest natural substance after the diamond. They range in colour from the highly saturated and highly prized, deep blue sapphires from Kashmir, to the rare, pink-orange, Padparadscha sapphires from Sri Lanka.

 

First mined and prized by the Ancient Egyptians, emeralds are revered for their rich, verdant green hues. Emeralds are from the beryl family. Natural inclusions and fissures are commonly found and contribute to the relative fragility of the stone.

Rubies & Opal

Initial Drawings


Prized for their deep red colour Rubies are symbolic of blood, passion and love, Rubies and sapphires are made from the mineral corundum, the second hardest natural substance after the diamond. Colour, cut, clarity and carat determine the value of a ruby with pigeon-blood red stones, the most highly sought.

 

The Romans prized opals above all others because of their beauty and kaleidoscopic colours. Opals are made from millions of tiny silicon spheres that refract light and produce a spectrum of iridescent colour. They are a fairly soft gemstone and are most commonly cut in the cabochon style, meaning they have a smooth, curved surface and a flat back that emphasises the ‘play of colour’.
