The Difference in our Diamond Melee Quality
What quality of diamonds to do you use in jewelry manufacturing?
In most designs, the major cost of a piece is determined by the quality of the gemstones used, from color and clarity, and last but not least the cut quality which is often overlooked. This small detail produces a big impact in the overall look of a piece. Every diamond melee that we use in our production are fully faceted, which makes a huge impact in the fire, brilliance and scintillation needed to bring a jewelry masterpiece to life.
Fully faceted, or full-cut melees diamonds are basically miniature versions of the the standard brilliant cut diamond, and are precision cut with 58 facets to produce the most optimal light performance for its size. Unlike many "economic quality" melees used in the marketplace today, with much lower color and clarity using cheaper single-cut methods (consisting of 17 facets) to save on costs of labor, we take pride in using the finest cut qualities of full-cuts (58 facets or more) coupled with higher end tiers of color and clarity to ensure that your fine jewelry scientifically cut and designed to maximize light performance.
As larger chain stores and online brands are pressured to compete on price, quality is typically sacrificed to gain market-share, and our difference is our dedication to quality. While our prices are still competitive, we also offer quite a bit more to our clients by providing the best guidance backed by a breadth of knowledge and experience, built through three generations of passionate jewelers who strive to maintain the highest standards in jewelry craftsmanship and design.
