Learn about diamonds to truly love and care for them

Would you like to take a look at that mysterious world of diamonds, the passion of every woman and the jewel she cares most about? The diamond, which comes from the Greek word “Adamas”, is made up of carbon, the hardest material in nature. For centuries, it has always been the first among the indispensable jewels of women. It is one of the most expensive stones in the world with its dazzling glow, magnificence, and majesty. Due to its hardness properties, it is a mineral that is not damaged under the soil. Diamond cut used to be made with diamonds. But with the developing technology, it can now be cut off with a laser. It is a hard-drawn and solid material. Starting from the 19th century, it was started to be processed as a precious stone. Due to the special interest of women in diamonds, in the wholesale diamonds loose market has created a huge potential, especially in the last 50 years. Today, diamond trade is in the heyday period because of the interest of women.

Women’s Diamond Love

Diamonds symbolize strength for women. It is also one of the most attractive and exotic jewels. It has an aphrodisiac effect on women. It’s appearance,  power, and glow turn women’s heads. The diamond represents elegance. Diamond is also a symbol of love. Because having a strong disposition of the diamond means strong love. The relationship between women and diamonds is so passionate that it never ends. When women buy diamonds, they often prefer wholesale diamonds loose stores. One of the biggest reasons for this is that they can choose between the more affordable price and more variety. A loose diamond means, diamond ready for sale. It is the processed form of raw diamond material and is usually used in jewelry such as necklace tip, earring tip, and ring. Women can use it in many jewels and evaluate it in a very different way. In addition, adapting to different models and shapes is the preferred reason for women. Prices may vary by size. You can even order according to your own preferences and make custom production. No matter how the shape and size of the diamond is, the love of women always continues. Even a small piece of diamond is enough to make them happy. Diamond is a jewel that caresses the woman’s soul.

How to choose a diamond?

Diamond is not a jewel that everyone can understand the quality of. If you are not familiar with this, we strongly recommend that you shop at a store that you can trust. Especially when you buy wholesale loose diamonds, examine the diamond you will buy. The diamond certificate should be the first criterion to be considered. When you purchase a certified product, you are assured that it is inspected by the gemology laboratory. So it prevents you from buying fake diamonds. But remember, some labs may not be as reliable as you think. Just because the diamond is too big doesn’t mean it’s quality. After you decide how to use the diamond, buy it. You can buy loose diamonds online such as Petra Gems. There’s nothing to worry with that. But you only have to choose the stores you are sure. If you buy directly from the store, you can check whether it suits you and buy it by sight. Both buying ways are also convenient. Choose the diamonds that excite you, suit you and express your love. Rather than the price, it is more important to suit you. Don’t expect to be given to you by a man. Indulge yourself!

The world’s first wearable CVD lab-grown ‘all diamond’ ring graded at HRD Antwerp

The world’s first wearable CVD lab-grown ‘all diamond’ ring graded at HRD Antwerp
The world’s first wearable CVD lab-grown ‘all diamond’ ring graded at HRD Antwerp

Dutch Diamond Technologies (DD) has created the world’s first ring that is entirely made from a lab-grown diamond. ‘Project D’, DD’s name for the ring, took a year to manufacture and was created in honour of the company’s 10th anniversary. For grading this unique piece of jewellery, DD turned to HRD Antwerp, Europe’s leading authority in diamond grading.

The ‘Project D’ ring has been made from a large piece of 155 carat rough CVD lab-grown diamond, which was polished using laser cutting and traditional techniques into a ring which has 133 facets, compared to 57 for a standard brilliant cut. The ring has a total weight of 3,865 carats. It wasn’t until 2017 that it became technically possible to grow large enough monocrystalline lab-grown diamond plates.

This is not the first ring to be created from a single diamond. In 2011, Shawish, the Swiss jeweller, unveiled the world’s first wearable ring made from a single crystal of natural diamond. Additionally, another lab-grown ‘all diamond’ ring, called (RED), has been conceived by the Diamond Foundry, but as far as we are aware, the production phase has not yet started.

For our 10th anniversary we wanted to create something stunning that would highlight our innovative and high-tech techniques,” says Ton Janssen, CEO of Dutch Diamond Technologies. “I think we’ve more than succeeded with the one-off ‘Project D’ ring. It’s a true “European” ring: grown in Germany, cut in the Netherlands and graded by HRD Antwerp in Belgium. HRD Antwerp has a well-earned reputation for delivering a perfect grading system thanks to their sophisticated equipment and dedicated team.

The quality and carat weight of CVD synthetic diamonds has increased drastically over the last ten years, taking up to 5 weeks to grow a diamond plate of this exceptional size in a laboratory. Growing a diamond with the CVD process requires a heated mixture of hydrocarbon gas and hydrogen in a vacuum chamber at very low pressure and elevated temperatures (900-1200°).

DD might be relatively new to cut diamonds for the jewellery market,” says Michel Janssens, CEO of HRD Antwerp, “but they have created an impressive ring for their 10th anniversary. The outstanding cutting and polish work has resulted in a brilliant light reflection which emphasises the beauty of the ring.”

HRD Antwerp has thoroughly analysed the ring and delivered the following grading results: Clarity VVS2, Colour E, Fluorescence NIL, Polish Very Good and Symmetry Excellent. A lab-grown diamond grading report is easily distinguishable from a natural diamond grading report by its green colour cover.
