Our Diamonds Make You Look Fabulous

Every person deserves to have a bit of fabulousness in their lives, whether they are buying something special for themselves or giving a gift to a loved one, our diamond range has something for everyone. The fundamentals of our diamond range are based on value. 

Choosing The Right Diamond

For most people, buying a diamond is a new experience, but that doesn't mean it should be overwhelming. Understanding a diamond's quality characteristics is straight forward and simple. To evaluate a diamond's value, jewellers use the 4C's - cut, colour, clarity and carat weight.

 

Diamond Cut

The cut of a diamond determines its brilliance. There are 2 components of cut - the quality and the shape.

 

Diamond Carat Weight

The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. Carat is the most objective of the 4 C's, it invloves no estimates.

 

Diamond Colour

Diamond Colour is graded using a letter scale D to Z. A diamond's colour grade actually refers to the lack of colour.

 

Diamond Clarity

Clarity is symbolic of purity and defined by the    presence of natural characterisics. All diamonds have tiny imperfections.



Our Diamond Promise



 


Diamond Cut

There are two components of cut – the quality of the cut and the shape.

Quality of the Cut
The cut gives each diamond its unique sparkle and brilliance. The cut of the diamond impacts the amount of light that enters and reflects out of the diamond.




Shape
Diamonds are cut into different shapes. The most common shapes in the Bevilles range are Brilliant, Princess and Baguette.



Diamond Carat Weight

The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. As diamonds are weighed to hundredths of a carat, they must be weighed on extremely precise and sensitive scales. When a single piece of jewellery has multiple stones, the total mass of the diamonds is referred to as ‘Total Diamond Weight’ or T.D.W.



Diamond Colour

Diamond colour is graded using a letter scale of D to Z. The closer a diamond is to being colourless, the rarer and more valuable it is.
Bevilles solitaire diamonds are predominantly within the G-H colour range.



Diamond Clarity

Clarity in a diamond is symbolic of ‘purity’ and defined by the presence of natural characteristics. The natural characteristics of a diamond give a diamond its uniqueness. Difference in clarity can be very subtle. Bevilles solitaire diamonds are predominantly graded between SI1 and I1.
