The 1867 discovery of diamonds in the Cape Colony in South Africa radically modified the world’s supply of diamonds, as well as the world’s perception of them. Annual world diamond production increased more than tenfold in the following 10 years. A once extremely rare material became accessible to Western society with its growing wealth. South Africa still maintains its position as a major diamond producer.
How did the CARAT system start?
The name comes from the seeds of the Mediterranean Carob tree. The seeds were originally used as the standard for weighing precious stones. Early gem traders used these, uniform, small seeds as counterweights to balance their scales. The carat gram weight is now the same everywhere in the world.
We Know our Diamonds
Diamonds are renowned for their ability to transmit light as well as the intensity of their sparkle. A diamond’s cut grade relates to how well the diamond’s facets interact with light.
Precise artistry and workmanship is required to fashion a stone to ensure its proportions, symmetry and polish deliver the magnificent return of light only possible in a diamond.
