HOW I SELECT DIAMONDS

            HOW I SELECT DIAMONDS

The diamonds I use in my creations are consistently a well-cut, colorless selection in clarities of VS and better. I have chosen to work with the same family-owned supplier for years because every parcel that passes through their hands is screened for enhancement and treatment, assuring my designs have beautiful, natural, high-quality diamonds. 

You'll see the color listed as DEF because that is the top of the colorless grade, and small diamonds, known as melee, are parceled by color, cut, and clarity. I purchase from the elite parcels unless specifically designing a contrast in the light show, with a mix of color, clarity, and cut of diamonds such as antique, rose-cut, and faceted gray, brown, yellow, or in rare cases, a color-treated blue or green.

On the occasion of these mixed color and quality grades, and especially a treated color, it will appear in the description for full transparency. I've done my due diligence, so you can always shop with confidence!
