Features / Benefits of Gold

  1. Gold is hypo allergic. Gold will not react when contacted with skin. Skin reactions will only the results dues to the other metals alloys in contact with skin.
  2. Gold does not rust, corrode, tarnish and is and a neutral metal. This will allow Gold to retain its brightness and luster from fading over time.
  3. Due to its 18K yellow gold content, our Italian 18K yellow gold jewellery is affordable and it is a great substitute for 22K, 24K yellow gold and platinum.
  4. 18K yellow gold and its metal mixture, it gives 18K yellow gold items a rich champagne gold in colour. This also allows the jewellery to be tougher and durable when wearing.
  5. As 18K yellow gold jewellery is lighter when compared with 22K and 24K. The prices for these 18KY are priced more affordably.

Diamonds

Created by geologic processes at great depths within Earth and rises to the earth?s surface in rare molten rock, diamonds are made of pure carbon, a natural crystalline mineral.
Diamonds represents an everlasting symbol of purity, love and unity.
The 5 Cs, namely, the Cut, Carat weight, Clarity, Colour and Certificate of the diamond determines the value of the diamond.

PROPORTION

Starrs™ diamond is an internationally recognised standard Perfect Cut Hearts & Arrows diamond.
Since centuries back, diamond master cutters, optical experts and gemologists had proven that 57 facets is the best to create optimum brilliance and fire.
Originally designed by mathematician Marcel Tolkowsky in 1919, only when a diamond is cut at precise angle and ratio, will it release perfect brilliance and fire.
In order to achieve these proportions, a diamond master cutter must sacrifice much more of the valuable diamond weight in order to yield a diamond of extraordinary brilliance.

Carat Weight

The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. One carat equals 0.20 grams and is divided into 100 points. Thus a diamond of 0.25 carat could also be described as a 25-points diamond.
However, a diamond’s value is not determined by weight alone. A small Hearts & Arrows diamond is more brilliant than a large  diamond with inferior colour, clarity and cut.

Clarity

Virtually all diamonds have natural characteristics. Clarity refers to the presence of tiny natural characteristic inclusions within the diamond, and/or on the surface of a diamond.
The clarity of a diamond is graded by experienced gemologists under 10 times magnification.
Considerations in grading the clarity of a diamond include the number, size, brightness and location of the internal and external characteristics.

Colour

Each diamond is colour-graded from “D” to “Z” where “D” is totally colourless and “Z” is light yellow.
Due to a diamond’s high brilliance and dispersion of light when looking through the diamond’s table or crown, colour grading should be determined by examining the diamond through the side of the pavilion but not looking at the top.
To determine the colour, a diamond is placed face down and compared to an internationally accepted master set of stones under controlled lighting and precise viewing conditions.
Colorimeter will also be used to increase the reliability and accuracy of the colour grading of diamonds.

Certificate

• Assuring the value of 4Cs
• Know what you are buying
• Laser inscription on diamond girdle
• Has trade-in value

The Hearts and Arrows certification is issued strictly following the International Diamond Council (IDC) standards, assuring the excellent combination of cut grade, symmetry, polish and proportion of a diamond.
Be aware that although some certificates have the words “H&A” under comments, “H&A” is not a grading of Hearts and Arrows, it just states what is inscripted on the diamond’s girdle.

Perfect Starrs™ Hearts and Arrowse

When seen through the Hearts & Arrows Diamond viewer, one can clearly see eight symmetrical arrows when viewed from the top of the diamond table and eight symmetrical hearts when viewed from the bottom of the diamond.
Normal round cut diamond cannot match the Hearts & Arrows diamond in terms of its brilliance, fire and scintillation.

Hearts and Arrows : Symbolizes the 8 different love stages perfectly: Chance Encounter, Adoration, Allusion, Fantasy, First Kiss, Passion, Chemistry, Commitment of Enduring Fidelity.
Precise cutting symbolizes the perfect diamond with the ultimate symbol of Hearts to stir the embers of your beloved and arrows to cross the hearts to set the passions raging.
Starrs™ diamond is an internationally recognized standard Perfect Cut Hearts & Arrows diamond.
Since centuries back, diamond master cutters, optical experts and gemologists had proven that 57 facets is the best to create optimum brilliance and fire.
Originally designed by mathematician Marcel Tolkowsky in 1919, only when a diamond is cut at precise angle and ratio, will it release perfect brilliance and fire.
In order to achieve these proportions, a diamond master cutter must sacrifice much more of the valuable diamond weight in order to yield a diamond of superior brilliance.

The Unique Distinction

• Each  Starrs™  diamond above 0.12ct:
• Laser inscribed with certificate number and ST logo on the girdle.
• Even Starrs™ diamond from as  small as 2 points (0.02 to 0.12ct) is laser inscribed with the unique Starrs™ logo.
• 2 points (0.02ct) diamond is as small as diamonds seen on a watch frame.

These guarantees it is a Starrs™ Hearts & Arrows Perfect Brilliance diamond.

Light Performance

Grading the cut of a polished round brilliant diamond involves visually assessing the diamond’s face-up appearance. It consists of 3  components:  Brilliance,  Dispersion  and  Scintillation.
BRILLIANCE is the intensity of white light return for a diamond through internal & external reflections.
DISPERSION is the separation of white light into rainbow colours through internal & external refractions.
SCINTILLATION is the sparkle and flashes when a diamond is moved and light reflected from all the diamond’s facets.
