Diamond Information

Clarity 

The clarity of a Diamond is dependent on the natural marks inside the stone which are formed as clouds and feathers. Most Diamonds contain inclusions that occur when they are formed by nature, almost like birthmarks. It is only the size, quantity and location of any marks within a stone that determine the clarity or purity of each Diamond.

We prefer to buy Vs-Si in clarity for our stock and negotiate very good discounts for our stock in these clarities. We have a updated daily list of stones from IF – I3 in all sizes .

Colour 

The colour scale is graded on letters and starts at D(rare white) and finishes at I for white Diamonds. From J – M diamonds show more colour through slight yellow down to a brown tinge. Below M are the natural fancy colours such as intense yellow and champagne.

Kingston Jewellers currently purchase Diamonds from D-J in Brilliant cut and D-I in fancy cuts. We prefer to certificate any stone D-G in colour  but please ask for our online list.

Cut 

In order to reflect all of the light, a well cut Diamond should have great proportions so it performs with the upmost sparkle and not look dull or lifeless.

There are a number of different shapes with, Brilliant and Princess, being the most popular and , Radiant, Asscher, Emerald and Pear are classified as fancy cuts.

Brilliants diamonds are cut to a specific proportions and we only choose Diamonds with very good proportions and from our small selection of very good cutters in Europe.
