Given that this week is all about #SustainablyStylishSolitatres, we compiled a list of the most
commonly asked questions regarding Solitaire Diamonds.
1. What is a Solitaire?
A solitaire is a diamond or gemstone that is set in a single setting. This typically refers to
jewellery that has one diamond as a highlight, placed in it. The design is constructed in
a way to emphasise the solitaire.
2. What is the difference between Lab-Grown Solitaires and Natural Solitaires?
Diamonds created in a lab are just as real as diamonds mined from the ground. Except
for the fact that they are developed in a lab, lab-grown diamonds are identical to earth
mined diamonds in every way. They have the same chemical, physical and optical
qualities and sparkle the same as mined diamonds as well.
3. What should one look for when selecting a solitaire?
A solitaire, or any diamond for that matter, is graded on four separate levels. The 4Cs
indicate these four levels: cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight.
Cut- The most important of the four elements is the cut. It reveals the
diamond’s lustre and reflective qualities. Round, oval, emerald, marquise,
cushion, trillion, and princess are just a few examples of stone cuts. The more
sparkly a diamond seems, the better the cut. As a result, pick your shape and
make sure your solitaire is well-cut and gleams brightly.
The Cut grades are as follows:
Colour – Diamonds come in a variety of colours, ranging from colourless to
pale yellow and even brown. Diamonds that are colourless are the rarest, most
desired, and most expensive. Hence, unless you opt for a fully coloured diamond
the whiter it is, the more expensive it will be.
The Colour grades are as follows:
Clarity- Majority of diamonds are known to have flaws and these impurities
are what makes each piece unique. Diamond impurities are formed due to the
high pressure and temperature the carbon goes through. When choosing a
solitaire, look for one with a high clarity rating. This indicates that it will be free of
The Clarity grades are as follows:
Carat Weight- The carat refers to the weight of your solitaire in metric
carats. It is important to note that the carat has no bearing on the diamond's
beauty, but it does have a significant impact on its price. After the other 3Cs,
think about the carat weight of your stone, depending on your budget.
4. Do Lab-grown diamond solitaires have a resale value?
Of course! They are a truly timeless investment, since they last forever without taking
away from Mother Earth. The stone can be sold at the current market price when you
wish to sell it.
