Which materials are used to make a DiAi piece?
We only use hallmarked 10kt/18kt gold with certified lab-grown diamonds.
Which is better, 10kt or 18kt gold?
Entirely depends on what you’re looking for! Gold is measured in karats, which indicates its purity level. 18kt gold is made up of 75% pure gold, which makes it a perfect investment option, whilst 10kt gold is made up of 41.7% pure gold, which makes it harder and thus, a more durable option. Worry not! Neither of them will tarnish over time.
What is hallmarked gold?
BIS hallmark is a sole agency verified by the Government of India, which authenticates the quality and karat of gold. All DiAi jewellery comes with a laser engraving of the Hallmark code, to authenticate the karat of gold. This can help you resell your piece in the future, if needed.
What are lab-grown diamonds?
Lab-grown diamonds are sustainably produced diamonds, which do not harm the earth’s natural state nor are a part of any illegal trade. These diamonds are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes that duplicate the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the mantle, beneath the Earth’s crust.
Lab-grown diamonds are chemically, physically & optically exactly the same as mined diamonds and are real diamonds. They are proud and sustainable diamonds which indeed sparkle forever. The only difference is the point of origin.
Mined diamonds will always be rare and precious in its own way, but if you’re looking at saving some bucks and would like to contribute to sustainable practices, this is definitely a great option for you!
Are lab-grown diamonds real?
Absolutely! All our lab-grown diamonds are certified by International independent diamond grading institutes. The certificates issued are identical to mined diamond certificates with grading of the 4C’s- Cut, Color, Clarity & Carat. Below is a comparison of lab-grown & mined diamonds, denoting the equivalence of both;
|SP3 Carbon Diamond Bonds (%)||100%||100%|
|Internal Crystal Structure||Face-Centered Cubic||Face-Centered Cubic|
|Colour||Various Grades||Various Grades|
|Cut||Poor to Ideal||Average-Very Good|
Can I get a certificate of authenticity?
Of course! Our gold is hallmarked with 18kt gold, by BIS (a sole agency verified by the Government of India) and our diamonds are certified by the international, Solitaire Gemological Laboratory (SGL). All DiAi jewellery comes with a laser engraving of the Hallmark code, to authenticate the karat of gold and a certificate of diamonds from SGL will also be placed in the packaging you receive with the product.
Do DiAi pieces have a resale value?
Similar to mined diamond jewellery, our jewellery also has the exact same resale value. It is life-long, with the gold and diamonds both valued at the current market price at the time of resale.
What is the quality of your diamonds?
All of our white diamonds are graded colourless-near colourless (F-H) and are graded (VVS-SI) for clarity. Each certificate contains detailed information of the diamond’s cut, carat, color and clarity. If you have any specific requirement, we are happy to make it possible!
