Diamond, the most adorable precious stone, is the only gem composed of just one element. It has only carbon in its chemical structure and the molecules of carbon are formed in a way that each is bonded to another with a perfect symmetry in every direction. Diamond owes its hardest natural substance to this extraordinary atomic structure. Its hardness is identified with a 10 on Moh’s scale. It is hard insomuch that only a tool made from another diamond can cut a diamond. (relevantly, its name derived from Greek word adámas meaning, unbreakable or unalterable) In addition to its wondrous hardness, it is also famous for its perfect luster and its perfectly high dispersion rate of visible light. Its formation and the time passing during its formation are also what make a diamond distinguishable.
Diamond Engagement Rings
Diamonds were firstly found and mined in India 2,400 years ago and India is the first commercial producer of diamond. Today, they are mined primarily in South Africa, India and then in Brazil, Canada and Australia. In ancient Roman and Greek eras, diamond was believed to be the tears of God or the broken parts of stars fallen down the earth. Diamond was firstly mentioned in Roman literature in 1st Century AD which stated that the tips of Cupid’s arrows were covered by diamonds. They wore diamonds as talismans since they believed them to have the protection power against evil. That belief is derived from Indian mythology in which diamonds were believed to be created of bolted lightning struck rocks. Moreover, in 13th century, a law in France prohibited to wear diamonds for people except for Kings and Queens.

The colour of a diamond refers to the combination of three components: hue, saturation and tone. The color-grading scale for diamonds ranges from D to Z..

H colour is the most suitable colour grade according to both the best price-performance ratio and the best harmony with designs.That’s why at Glamira, diamonds in H colour are generally used. Diamond cut refers to the symmetry, proportioning and polish of a diamond which are adjusted during the cut process of the gemstone after it has been mined from the earth. All are done to deliver the magnificent return of light in a diamond. The cut is divided into 3 different grades; proportions, polish and symmetry. The cut range contains 5 grades; Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair and Poor.

At Glamira, you can find many shapes of diamonds including princess, brilliant, round, trillion, cushion, heart, oval and emerald which you can use to customize your pieces As the result of carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep in the earth, all natural diamonds have a variety of internal traces called ‘inclusions’ and external traces called ‘blemishes’. Diamond clarity refers to a diamond’s purity and the criteria on clarity includes determining the number of these traces, their sizes, relief and position. To find an ideal price/quality ratio, it is important to know that tiny inclusions in the VVS1 to SI2 clarity grading scale cannot be noticeable to the naked eye. Glamira always uses the diamonds in VS (very slightly inclusions) clarity in its jewelry. And diamond carat is a measure to determine the size of a diamond according to its weight.
