Diamond chains - for glamorous appearances
Diamonds are considered the crowning glory of all gemstones and are the epitome of luxury. Only about 25% of the quantities promoted worldwide are at all suitable for jewellery production. The term diamond is derived from the ancient Greek word adamas, which means as much as impregnable. And this translation could not be more accurate, because the diamond is actually the hardest, naturally occurring raw material. On the Mohs hardness scale, the diamond has a value of 10; the oldest finds of this precious gemstone date back to 4000 BC and are located in India. There, however, the diamonds were not used to make jewellery or tools, as people believed that the stones would then lose their magical effect. Diamonds have only been processed and cut since the 13th century. The popular and now most frequently used diamond cut was not developed until 1910. This type of grinding is also most frequently used for our exclusive chains. Our premium diamond chains are made of classic yellow gold, elegant white gold or modern rose gold. In some cases diamonds are accompanied by amethysts, rubies, sapphires, emeralds or black diamonds. Discover our exquisite assortment of diamond chains and let yourself be inspired by these precious pieces of jewellery. The value of a diamond depends on several factors. The most important features are known as the 4 Cs. This means cut, color, clarity and carat. The cut turns rough diamonds into the sparkling gems we love so much. Basically, a stone can either be faceted or polished. A facet cut strives for optimal light refraction so that the typical fire of the diamond is produced. Polishing a diamond, as in cabochon-cutting, promises an ideal view of the purity of the gemstone. Popular cuts are: the already mentioned brilliant cut, marquis cut, oval cut, drop cut, heart cut, emerald cut, baguette cut and the princess cut. The colour of diamonds is classified according to a standardised colour scale. This ranges from D (High-Fine White+) to Z (Maximum Tinted Yellow). More intense colors deeper than the color Z are not considered less precious gems, but rare fancy diamonds. In almost all cases the stones we process fall under G (fine white). The purity of a diamond is influenced by the number and size of inclusions present in the stone. The classification table ranges from flawless to inclusions that are easily visible to the naked eye and significantly reduce the brilliance of the diamond. Almost all our diamonds fall into the category small inclusions. This means that the inclusions are easily visible under the microscope at tenfold magnification, but by no means with the naked eye. Carat is the weight of gemstones and should not be confused with the carat number, which indicates the purity of gold. The carat number influences the price of the respective diamond piece of jewellery most strongly from the 4 Cs. Good to know: The carat number indicates only the weight and not the size of the diamond. This means that a diamond of two carats is not automatically twice as large as a single carat.
For a radiantly beautiful décolleté - chains with diamonds
Diamond chains are valuable and imperishable with proper care. This is why they are an excellent gift for a very special occasion. But please don't forget to treat yourself from time to time and to reward yourself. So what you have mastered remains unforgettable. In our wide assortment of diamond chains you will find the individually fitting chain for every taste. You can choose between 585 and 750 gold (yellow gold, white gold and pink gold). The diamonds are held by claws, pavé or grains. With the claw setting, the diamond is held by filigree claws, through which it receives the maximum amount of light and shines even more brilliantly. The pavé setting is used when many small diamonds are to be arranged close together. Each diamond sits in a small recess and the edges of the metal will be rubbed over the edges of the diamond until tiny beads are formed. In this way, the respective stone is held in position. The same procedure is also used for grain detection. The only difference is that the stones are only placed in one row. The designs of our diamond chains and necklaces are extremely versatile: from floral ornaments, romantic hearts, minimalist circle designs, Infinity signs to simple pendants, everything is included. A colour accent is set by chains set with amethysts, rubies, sapphires or emeralds in addition to diamonds. The combination of white and black diamonds is particularly rich in contrast. Black diamonds are among the fancy diamonds. The color results from the penetration of graphite into the crystal lattice of a diamond. Since the 1990s they have become increasingly popular and are mainly mined in Central Africa or Brazil. With a diamond chain you always have the right accessory for a glamorous appearance, which skilfully underlines an elegant outfit. After all, a look is only perfect with the right jewellery.
