DIAMONDS

Diamonds are forever

Diamonds are made of compressed carbon and is the only mineral made of one single element. Natural diamonds are more than a billion years old. They are formed at high temperatures between 1.000 – 1.300 °C and high pressures that only exist more than 150 kilometers beneath the earth’s surface. A diamonds value is based on a combination of four value factors also called the 4C’s created by GIA, Gemological Institute of America. Combined the 4C’s – color, clarity, cut and carat weight describes each diamonds unique quality. All diamonds between 0.01 ct and 0.18 ct used by NUIT et LINETTE all have the following qualities. Color G or H, VS – very slightly included and a very good or good cut.
