An engagement ring is the emblem of the bond of love. When one kneels down and a moment is intervened, a solitaire ring makes one feel as if all stars in the sky are kneeling before them.
A solitaire ring. We hear the words and create an image in front of our eyes; a ring with a big, lone diamond studded on the top of the ring. A solitaire is that star of the lights that steals all the spotlight upon itself. Jewellery pieces that feature large clusters of diamonds are popular yet a solitaire diamond jewellery holds its place high among them all.
Solitaire jewellery is an art that is desired for its perfection. And we, at Finnati understand that best because we try the hardest.
Find such audacious attempts being materialized at Finnati. It is the only jewellery boutique to have its own in-house designers, whose sole purpose is to understand what represents you best, and can be crafted in a crowning masterwork of artisanship.
And this is the allure of Finnati.
All we know is diamond but we know it all. And we take it as our responsibility to enlighten our clients with the basic understanding of a diamond.
In most diamonds, the term actually refers to the absence of colour. The less colour in the stone, the more valuable it is. Although colour can be a personal preference, one should keep in mind that the good colours are D, E, F, G and H.
Clarity measures the amount, size and placement of internal ‘inclusions,’ and external ‘blemishes.’ Clarity can be a personal preference. However, the good clarity standards are FL, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1 and VS2.
The cut of a diamond does not refer to a diamond’s shape, but also to the proportion and arrangement of its facets and the quality of workmanship. Grades range from ‘Excellent’, ‘Very Good’, ‘Good’ to ‘Bad’. Excellent cut is the most valuable cut, whereas a bad cut is comparatively priced less.
Carat refers to a diamond’s weight. Higher the carat weight, the more expensive the stone.
These factors should never be compromised when buying a solitaire:
- Cut: excellent
- Polish: excellent
- Symmetry: excellent
- Fluorescence: none
The 5th C: Aesthetics
In addition to the four Cs of diamond which is of utmost importance, we believe that it takes aesthetics to create an emblem of love. At Finnati, we identify it as emotions.
A diamond should not be considered for buying when it has the mentioning as under:
- Laser drilling: Used to enhance the clarity of a diamond, drilling tiny channels within a diamond weakens its structure, even if this effect is not significant.
- Fracture filling: It refers to fixing the holes drilled in a solitaire with a crystal substance after its inclusions have been removed, making imperfections invisible.
- Colour-enhanced: In order to permanently alter the colour of the diamond, HPHT (high-pressure high-temperature treatment) may be used.
We always insist on buying a solitaire from a reputed jeweller and make sure to get the diamond grading report certified by GIA, which will have all the technical information you need. With a certificate that takes the oath for the diamond matters as it provides an independent and trustworthy verification of the diamond’s authenticity.
