  • The 4Cs - The COLOUR of Your Diamond

    In past posts we have talked about the 4Cs of diamond grading and where the grading values are on a Grading Certificate.  For my Diamonds, Australia on of Australia's foremost diamond retailers this is usually carried out by GIA or HRD.  One of the four main characteristics of a diamond is colour - an important consideration when purchasing your diamond.

    At My Diamonds we try to make the distinctions easier to understand before you purchase, and explain why certain colours of diamonds will command higher prices.

    Loose diamonds must be graded before they are mounted or put in a setting.  This is because surrounding colours can permeate the true colour of the stone.  For example a yellow gold setting will make a diamond look less yellow.  A white gold or platinum setting will emphasise colour.

    • G~H~I~J  Nearly colourless
    • K~L~M Faintly tinted, usually yellow
    • N~O~P~Q~R  Lightly tinted, usually yellow.  Tint can be seen with the naked eye
    • S~T~U~V~W~X~Y~Z  Tinted, usually yellow, may progress to brownish.  Tint visible to the naked eye.
    • These grades apply to diamonds that are colourless, or those that are yellow through yellowish brown, as in the above diagram.  They do not apply to fancy coloured diamonds.  Fancy coloured diamonds  have separate colour grading standards.
    • When referring to colour, a grading report will grade a diamond's lack of colour or whiteness.
    • D is the highest colour grade with Z being the lowest

     


    My Diamonds will always ensure you know your diamond before purchase.  Their professional diamond specialists are always on hand to provide information and answers to queries.  My Diamonds will guide you to the diamond of your dreams, whether in a superb pre-designed ring, or an exquisite diamond in a diamond engagement ring of your own design.

  • Buying Your Precious Diamond On the Internet

    Having face to face contact with a company you're purchasing from is becoming less and less important with the dawning of a new customer - those who buy over the internet.  Our mothers and fathers and beyond, have had to join a revolution in buying and customer service. It would seem that retail outlets that we have come to know and love have accepted that many people prefer to sit in the comfort of their own homes and simply click to buy.

    In the beginning, we nervously stuck our toe in the water, buying books from Amazon, or gradually realising that there's no need to join the crush in the busy times at the supermarket.  We can simply order whatever we want online, and let other people pack and deliver for us.  Absolute bliss!

    In the 21st Century, we're now used to buying high end products on the internet, such as diamonds, diamond jewellery - diamond engagement rings and wedding bands.  This is because companies like My Diamonds, www.mydiamonds.com.au have realised it doesn't matter how your customer chooses their purchase, they still require the same, exemplary customer service they've been shown in the past.

    My Diamonds has flourished - using the internet to bring their diamond collections into the public consciousness, and are now one of the foremost diamond internet retailers in Australia.

    The most important point that most people will consider when buying over the internet is security.  Is it really secure for me to spend a not insubstantial amount of money with someone over the other side of the country, who I've never spoken to?  The answer, at least with My Diamonds is a resounding 'yes'!

    Once you've decided which exquisite diamond engagement ring you wish to purchase from My Diamonds, we advise you to read the diamond knowledge articles on the site, and on this, the My Diamonds blog.  It will cover points such as

    * Engagement ring guidance *Diamond related topics * Conflict Free Diamonds and the Kimberley Process * Custom Made Jewellery * and the My Diamonds 100% Guarantee of Excellence and Quality.

    And of course, if you prefer to speak to a My Diamonds diamond specialist before you make your purchase, telephone 1300 66 55 20.

  • The World Diamond Capital ~ Antwerp, Belgium

    If you're a newcomer to the fabulous world of diamonds, it may be interesting for you to know that currently, 80% of rough diamonds, and 60% of polished diamonds pass through the hallowed diamond quarter of Antwerp, the diamond industry's city of excellence.

    Antwerp is the third largest port in the world, and a municipality and  capital of the Antwerp province in Flanders.

    It was all started by Hendrik Cassiers who founded the first diamond cutting company outside Antwerp in Grobbendon, at the end of the 19th Century.  He and Frans Dela Montagne laid the foundations of the industry, which settled in Nijlen, Herenthout, Bevel, Kessel, Vorselaar and Berlaar.

    One man, Romi Goldmuntz, who was born in 1882, was the catalyst for the survival of the diamond business in Antwerp.  His diamond company employed about 600 workers in 1920 and he and his brother Leopold had business connections with the Diamond Trading Company.  DTC is a subsidiary of the very famous De Beers.  It was Romi Goldmuntz who in 1918, after the end of the First World War, persuaded exiles in the Netherlands to return to Antwerp and continue working the diamond industry.

    From these shaky beginnings grew the community of diamond specialist, craftsmen and experts who have developed and nurtured this wonderful industry, ensuring the rest of the world can enjoy the most amazing diamonds and diamond jewellery.  He also founded the Diamond Office in Antwerp, and other institutions are also named after him.  'Cut in Antwerp' is the most sought after trademark in the diamond industry, because with it translates to excellence and quality.

    My Diamonds, www.mydiamonds.com.au offers client artisan craftsmen, with their chief craftsman experiencing his training in Antwerp.  This is reflected in the exquisite diamond engagement rings, diamond wedding rings and loose diamonds in the My Diamonds collection.

    Below is a selection of exquisite diamond engagement rings from the My Diamonds collection.
