What makes diamonds valuable?

Posted by Sylvans at 4:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

Diamonds are not expensive because they are rare finds. Earth has plenty of raw diamonds waiting to be unearthed in numerous mines worldwide. Some say diamond traders hoard these stones to create an artificial shortage to drive up prices. But that's not accurate, too. Diamonds become valuable in the hands of the jeweler, not as a rare stone. In fact, the industry uses the GIA grading system developed in the fifties to measure a diamond's worth. Many of these standards rest on the skills of the diamond jeweler. For instance, cut depends on the craftsman's artistry to create a balance set of facets to reflect the most striking translucence. Likewise, clarity rests not on the raw diamond's feature, but also on the way the diamond is polished and finished. In the hands of a truly skilled jeweler like Signature Diamonds, these gemstones become truly valuable.

Signature Cut: The New Standard of Beauty

Posted by Sylvans at 3:22:09 PM in Signature Diamonds (15)

There are standards then there are new standards. This is just exactly what Signature Diamonds had achieved when it comes to the beauty of diamonds. Other makers sacrifice potential brilliance, fire and scintillation just to retain the weight of the original rough. Diamonds that are cut too shallow will leak like through the bottom and those that are cut too deep will appear dark to the eye.  This is not the case for Signature Diamonds as the company is too obsessed in delivering the maximum radiant light and sparkle that a diamond should. To achieve the desired effect, the rough is expertly cut at precise angles and proportions to reflect and retract light. This is a cut developed by Signature Diamonds – a perfectly balanced process that cuts not too shallow or too deep. This results to bigger, brighter and whiter pieces; pieces that pass the discerning taste of connoisseurs. 
You too do not need any compromise. Get the perfect cut, the signature cut only from Signature Diamonds. Visit Sylvan on Main Street, Columbia to avail pieces that are the new standard of beauty.

Posted by Sylvans at 2:09:56 PM in Signature Diamonds (15)

The cut of the diamond is a result of elaborate and highly technical processes perfected only by the most experienced experts in the industry. No wonder that diamond cutting has become an exacting science. The first ever intensive study focused on diamond cut was conducted by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), esteemed authority in diamond grading and valuation. A result of GIA's 15 years of scientific study on the perfect cut, Signature Diamond is the new standard of beauty in the industry. Using state of the art computer modeling, the signature cut is crafted precisely after a very strict set of standards that surpass GIA's highest grade for symmetry, proportion and polish. Each signature diamond is inscribed with its own GIA certificate number and signature diamond logo.

A game-changer

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

Some people loves competition, some even thrive better when competition is intense. This is very much the name of the game in the jewelry industry, where only the best thrive and survive. As they say, if you can’t beat them, join them, but why not up the ante another notch so that success will just be yours for the picking! This is likely the approach used by Signature Diamonds when it began its operations as it focused on the most critical element of jewelry quality — the cut. By commissioning the GIA to conduct the very first scientific research to study a diamond’s cut, Signature Diamond virtually changed the name of the game by exclusively creating diamonds based on the findings of the pioneering 15-year study. The result — diamonds with brilliance beyond compare, where each piece is cut with only the most precise angles and proportions to arrive at maximum fire, scintillation and brilliance. This is why every Signature Diamonds piece is “a cut above the rest.”

Signed with highest quality

Posted by Sylvans at 8:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

The word “signature” came from the Latin word “signare” which means to sign. Before we came to know emails and the Internet, a signature primarily refers to one’s handwritten representation of his/her own name to verify a person’s identity and support his or her agreement with a certain document. As such, the key element in a signature is the owner’s established individuality and intention. The same reasoning goes with Signature Diamonds. Since it’s the product of one-and-a-half decades of in-depth study made by the Gemological Institute of America, the world’s most respected expert in gems, you can always be sure that each Signature Diamond commands the same confidence anyone puts with GIA. So the next time you go shopping for jewelries, look only for those that bear the signature of GIA: Signature Diamonds. That is, if you only prefer peace of mind, value, and unparalleled quality.

Diamond cutting like it should be

Posted by Sylvans at 3:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

A great part of the diamond’s value is dependent on its natural state: its weight, size, and color when it is mined. However, a diamond can also become truly valuable in the hands of a highly skilled diamond cutter; conversely, a naturally prized diamond can be ruined if cut improperly. That’s why Signature Diamonds perfected diamond cutting to make sure each of its diamond piece exhibits the most brilliance and scintillation. The company achieves this by creating cuts that are neither too shallow nor deep. In both instances a significant amount of light is lost. Instead, cutting the diamond should achieve the right proportion with each facet exposed to maximum light. When the light bounces off inside, the result is a brilliant display of fire inside and a brightness that is unparalleled.

How to buy a diamond

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

Diamonds are not just all about the sparkle; there are shades of factors to consider to get the best piece. First, consider the consistency in cut. Because raw diamonds vary in shape, it’s difficult to maintain an exact cut for every diamond. But some brands like Signature Diamonds boasts of creating consistent proportions that are even higher than the GIA Excellent and AGS Ideal standards. Next, check for the right angles. The facets should not only allow the widest surface to reflect light, but feature precisely set angles to avoid light leakage. An excellent cut like that of Signature Diamonds keeps the light generating more scintillation as light bounces off the facets. At the same time, the cut should be angled positioned to produce maximum white light going out of the top of the diamond, creating the outmost brilliance while generating a play of rainbow colors inside the diamond.

Get the best brilliance out of a diamond

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

Many diamonds are cut to retain its maximum possible weight and size, but to the detriment of its brilliance. That’s because the cut is either too shallow or deep; thus, the light is reflected improperly. How do you know if the diamond is cut the right way? Here’s a simple tip: get a Signature Diamonds. The brand is known for its signature cut that creates vivid brilliance, scintillation and fire. Brilliance is achieved when the light enters through the top of the diamond, gets reflected by side facets and is bounced back to the top. Scintillation, on the other hand, is the sparkling of flashes dispersed by the brilliance once the light exited the top. Scintillation is the tiny sparkles that we associate diamonds with twinkling stars. Fire, meantime, is the different colors produced while the light is being bounced back and forth by the facets inside and out to the top of the diamond.  Signature Diamonds are said to produce one or two color grades more than its GIA-certified classification.

Care Tips for Diamonds

Posted by Sylvans at 8:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

Here are some quick tips on how to take care of high-end diamonds like Signature Diamonds to ensure the luster is always at its best. Keep it in a clean, dry place when not in use. A padded or felt jewelry box is a good storage. Avoid using it if the stone starts to loosen. Bring it to an authorized jeweler (a Signature Diamond authorized) or a trusted professional diamond setter. As a precaution, have the diamond jewelry such as stud earrings, solitaire pendants, and diamond rings assessed by the jeweler once a year. Make sure to keep a close watch while the setter or jeweler checks the piece. Remove the ring when doing household chores or manual work to avoid accidental chipping. But make sure to keep it in a safe place (avoid the habit of leaving it on the lavatory while you wash hands). Don’t use lotion, detergents, or soap to clean the diamond. Water alone will give it a good wash. And make sure to wipe it dry after.

What’s Your Diamond?

Posted by Sylvans at 9:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

Diamonds don’t only mesmerize, they also say something about you. The traditional round diamond means you want classic things or that you’re conservative. A princess cut suggests that, while you want it classic, you also want a little something more. An emerald cut reveals your retro preference and that you are more of a risk taker. This cut is susceptible to revealing flaws in the diamond; hence, the risk. The cushion cut implies more romance, or it can also mean that you’re undecided between a princess and round cut. A diamond heart grabs attention, perfect if you want the spotlight on you. But there’s one cut that is renowned to produce radiance: the Signature Diamonds’. Not to deep or too shallow, its cut is proportionate to allow more light to reflect and refract. The result is a brighter display of scintillation and fire.

A Cut above the rest

Posted by Sylvans at 3:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

The value of diamonds is set by carat, clarity and color. But all these are dependent on a diamond’s natural state. In the hands of a highly skilled jeweller, the diamond that is cut to perfection becomes a truly rare and luxurious piece. Signature Diamonds has mastered diamond cutting through the years, achieving the right angles that refract and reflect light to create the most brilliance. If a diamond is cut too shallow, the light passes through the bottom. If it is cut too deep, the light is reflected on the sides. In both cases, the diamond loses radiance. Signature Diamonds cuts with precise angles and proportions that deflect a passing light from above to the sides and back to the top. Passing through the diamond’s inner facets, the light is deflected many times over before exiting again on top. The result is a brighter, more brilliant diamond.

The Signature of Expert Craftsmanship

Posted by Sylvans at 8:00:00 AM in Signature Diamonds (15)

Signature Diamonds are the new standard of beauty in the jewelry making industry, thanks to the brand’s precise angles and proportions that maximize the stone’s radiant light and sparkle across its surface. It is often explained in basic information about diamonds that the cut is the most important factor that affects a diamond’s beauty and value.  The Signature cut sets proportion standards that are more stringent than GIA’s Excellent ratings, which results in consistently similar stones in terms of proportion, symmetry and polish. The precise angles also gives Signature Diamonds a much larger table that efficiently refracts light to the top and avoids the two pit falls of diamond cutting – the fish-eye and nail head effects, both of which minimize the dazzling brilliance, fire and scintillation of a wrongly-cut stone. Signature’s modern cutting technology produces stones with dazzling brilliance that is unmistakably exquisite.
