I recommend a stone by combining a number of assessment factors including:

  • the stone’s proportions and angles
  • how confident I am that the recipient will absolutely love love love the diamond;
  • excellent light return
  • optical precision
  • good, clear, high quality diamond material
  • the value I believe it represents;
  • must be deemed eye-clean by me;
  • how well it fits the brief.
