Diamonds

DiamondsDiamonds, especially brilliant cut diamonds are now the most popular gemstones used in jewelry. Diamonds in the unwrought form are almost dull, without any shine Suitable cut brings life to them.

The shine of these stones is the result of reflection of light penetrating the interior of their bodies, so that the gemstone appears deep and three-dimensional. In this way, after appropriate polishing, a diamond is formed, which owes its beauty not only its innate characteristics, but also human hands.

The price depends mainly on the size, the color and purity of the precious stone, and other materials used. You should be ready for a higher expense. A cheaper alternative are the already mentioned cubic zirconia gemstones.
