Brilliance refers the sparkle that returns as white light that enters and bounces off the facets of a diamond. Fire refers to the flashes of rainbow colours from the dispersion of light of the diamond, while scintillation refers to the sparkle of a diamond when a diamond moves.
Cut. It is the only aspect of a diamond that can be controlled by man. The other Cs, gifted by Mother Nature, brings out the colour, carat and clarity of a diamond. But it takes a true artisan to maximise the brilliance, fire and scintillation of every diamond.
It’s always advised to inspect a diamond under white light. Yellow light may mix up with the true colour of the diamond, making it difficult to see the actual colour and brilliance of the diamond. Indirect sunlight and UV are other sources of light that can be used.
Platinum, of course! Its subtle, deep white luster is elegant and pure. The ‘whiteness’ of platinum will reflect light into a diamond in its original form. A diamond that is set in yellow gold will gives slightly yellow tinge to the diamond, thus gives an impression that the diamond is yellowish.
Platinum that is white, almost pure, still has some traces of other metals. The different grades of platinum can tell you how pure it really is. Diamond & Platinum carries two grades of platinum. Pt950 contains 95% pure platinum, the highest grade of platinum, and Pt900 contains 90% pure platinum.
Diamonds are one of the hardest known substances on earth. So it is best for you to keep it clean and degreased with dish soap, warm water and a soft brush. Alternative, take your diamonds jewelleries to your trusted jewellers and have them clean it for you.
We recommend that you to store your jewellery in soft pouches when it’s not worn to prevent scratching or dulling by other jewellery. Diamonds may be one of the hardest known substances on earth, but they can also scratch each other.
When choosing a diamond, it is very important to know your priority. If shine and sparkle are of utmost importance to you, make sure you go with diamonds with good grades in cut, clarity and colour. When choosing jewellery with more than one diamond in it, make sure that all the diamonds share the same clarity, colour and cut. Sometimes, jewellery is sold at discounted prices because multi-stoned pieces vary in clarity, colour and cut, resulting in uneven reflection of light and sparkle.
