While a gift of diamonds is traditionally given as an engagement ring and also for the 16th and 19th wedding anniversaries, there's never a better way to say that your love has only grown stronger, deeper, and more enduring with the passage of time.

Diamonds are also the most classic of all jewels. Their unmatched beauty and elegance make them ideal for marking life's most important occasions, from the birth of a child to milestones like graduation or a major promotion. But then... why wait? The gift of a diamond can transform any moment sure to be treasured forever.

Excellent, but subject to the diamond cut.


Diamond is rated "excellent" for everyday wear. Avoid placing your diamond jewellery where it might scratch another gem or get scratched by another diamond. Although a diamond is the hardest material known to mankind, it is not the toughest, diamonds can chip and even break if worn while doing heavy work or if it receives a sharp blow.

To clean, gently scrub with a soft toothbrush and a solution of mild dish soap and warm water, or clean in an at-home ultrasonic unit.
