Diamond Jewellery: Monica Vinader's Precious Gemstone
Diamonds can be a sought after precious gemstone, due to their
beauty, cut and style. At Monica Vinader we only use ethical
diamonds in our pieces, to help reduce the sales of conflict
diamonds. This is one part of our quality
promise to our customers.
In our diamond collections you will find the H colour diamond.
To the naked eye, this gemstone is near colourless. You would only
find a faint yellow hue if you were to place it under a microscope
or lay it next to a higher graded diamond. In diamond grading the
categories are broken down into:
- D/E/F = Colourless
- G/H/I/J = Near colourless
- K/L/M = Faint colouring
- N/O/P/Q/R = Very light colouration
- S/T/U/V/W/X/Y/Z = Light colouration
As well as being graded by colour, there are three other
elements which are considered when buying everyday diamonds. They
are also known as the 4Cs.
These factors are what diamond graders use to ensure your
gemstone is of high-quality.
Just like all of our materials, we source our gemstones
ethically. We do this by using suppliers who are registered members
Responsible Jewellery Council. By being members of this
council, we are ensured that our suppliers meet high ethical
standards and commit to the Kimberley
Process. This is a certification which aims to follow a
diamond from mine to market, in order to help reduce the trade of
conflict diamonds across the globe. Another requirement we check,
is to see whether our suppliers adhere to The World Diamond
Council's System of Warranties. By checking this ensures our
gemstones at least meet the minimum requirement set out in the
