May I know who your customers are?

Pre-Purchase and Research
Can you source 20 pieces of similar diamond stones: colour, clarity and cut to craft a necklace?
Yes. Sourcing stones within the top 1% of all natural diamonds available is one of our unique capabilities. We are able to meet order requirements for 20, 30, 50 or even more stones of the same size, same colour, same clarity and of the same cut. All stones are GIA certified.
Are your diamond conflict free and certified?
Yes. All our diamonds are conflict free and are certified by Gemmological Institute of America (GIA) with a grading report. We are also a registered retailer with GIA.
How can I be sure that a GIA grading report is authentic?
All GIA reports contain security features such as a hologram, security screen and microprint lines that prevent them from being forged or duplicated. Also, clients can use GIA's “Report Check” service to verify the authenticity of the issued report. (http://www.gia.edu/report-check-landing)
Are we allow to mix the gold in the metalwork, in our preferences?
Yes. Your options include white gold, rose gold and yellow gold. Most of our customers opt for white gold due to the high quality of our stones – to maximise contrast.
