THE 4 Cs

A symbol of 'eternal love' and falling under the Zodiac sign Aries, diamonds are the hardest mineral known to man, formed by the elemental forces of heat and pressure up to 50 miles below the earth, more than three billion years ago. It's value, rarity and beauty are determined by factors that are commonly known as the 4 Cs:

Cut refers to the diamond's reflective qualities resulting from the exact placements of facets within the stone. We cut ours to a round shape to show their brilliance to optimum effect.

Graded on their lack of colour, the most valuable diamonds are colourless, with the exception being rare stones with strong colour traces such as yellow, blue and pink. Our diamonds are H/I colour, which is near colourless on the scale.

Nearly all diamonds contain some natural inclusions and the visibility and number of these inclusions determine its clarity. The fewer inclusions, the more valuable the stone. We use stones with a clarity of I1 which means they are slightly included but due to their size, these inclusions are not visible to the naked eye.

A carat (ct) is a unit of measurement to weigh diamonds. You can find the carat weight of all our pieces in its style description on our website.



We are committed to ensuring the ethical sourcing of our products and we work closely with our suppliers to ensure that they adhere to our Code of Conduct, which sets out the standards of business behaviour we expect from them.

Our stones are sourced through suppliers who adhere to the Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council's System of Warranties, preventing the distribution of conflict diamonds in rough, cut and polished stones. Conflict diamonds are those smuggled by rebels to finance wars against legitimate governments. Our suppliers are also compliant with United Nations resolutions.


Stones with no trace elements are colourless, forming the white diamonds that you will see in many of our collections. Increased amounts of nitrogen create a yellow 'champagne' colour in the stone. Their translucent champagne hue, also referred to as 'light brown' or 'cognac' varies between each stone.
