Diamonds and Gemstones Knowledge

Choosing a diamond or gemstone can be an daunting exercise. You don't have to be an expert to make the right choices but a little knowledge might help. We've put together some very comprehensive pages about diamonds and gemstones - their properties, their uses in bespoke engagement rings and our recommendations for different types of jewellery.

Some of the most popular diamond cuts are also featured - not a comprehensive list but a good starting point and we've also featured a few of the many settings that could be used in your jewellery.

Alongside these pages are articles written by our designers about topics related to diamonds and gemstones. They are experts in their field and we hope their knowledge and passion for their subject will shine through.

So if you are wanting to know a little more about the 4Cs, have heard about a morganite and want to find out more or a considering a more unusual setting for your ring then read on and enjoy!
