The Aristocrazy diamond is pure attitude. A precious stone that maximizes your personality whatever your style. Welcome to Diamond 365.
Only the right pressure and heat, in a process of millions of years, can crystallize a piece of carbon until it becomes what will be the hardest, most brilliant stone of all: the diamond.
UNDERSTANDING THE 4 C'S
The beauty of a diamond is largely determined by its cut. By this we mean
that the way the facets interact with the light. Perfectly proportioned, symmetrical and polished
diamonds optimise the way the stone interacts with the light, meaning they shine and sparkle more. The
Gemological Institute of America (GIA) assesses these factors and classifies diamonds on a symmetry
scale, from excellent to poor:
Excellent · Very good · Good · Acceptable · Poor
The cut of a diamond is the only quality that is not naturally
created. At Aristocrazy we ensure that the hands that work on our diamonds are highly experienced, with
great technical ability and skill to maximise the diamond's brilliance.
The most recognized cut for diamonds is the brilliant, made up of 57 or 58 triangular and rhombus-shaped facets arranged to optimize brilliance and return of the light.
A diamond’s clarity is a measure of its purity and uniqueness. The GIA
classifies the purity of diamonds on an 11-point scale, ranging from diamonds without defect and
without internal inclusions (FL/IF), to diamonds with visible inclusions
(I1, I2, I3). These categories are based on whether the inclusions can be seen with a x10 magnifying
Truly pure (no inclusions) diamonds are very rare, most diamonds have natural inclusions that are invisible to the naked eye and do not affect their beauty.
At Aristocrazy we always create our jewels with VS1, VS2 and SI1, SI2, diamonds, with white inclusions and never with inclusions close to the centre of the diamond or slab.
The colour refers to the natural colour of white diamonds. Most have a slightly yellow tone, the lighter
the colour of the diamond the more unique and exceptional it is.
The standards for classifying the colour of diamonds is based on a system where diamonds are ranked from D (colourless) to Z (light yellow).
Aristocrazy only works with diamonds in the colourless and almost colourless range (D, E, F, G, H and I).
Diamonds are weighed in carats. Carats measure the weight of the diamond, not its size.
One carat is 0.2 g..
At Aristocrazy all diamonds with a caratage greater than 0.3 g come with a GIA certificate.
