Buyers Guide

Every diamond at Wongs is unique. Each reflects the story of its wonderous journey from deep inside the earth to a cherished object of adornment. Yet all diamonds share certain features that allow us to compare their beauty.

These features are called the 4Cs - Cut, Clarity, Colour and Carat.

Cut

Whatever the cut you choose, your Wongs diamond is sure to be dazzling. Our Expert team hand select only the finest of stones to be mounted in our beautiful jewellery. Starting with the rough diamond, they will decide how to cut and polish it to create the most beautiful stone, ensuring perfect balance and symmetry of all of the facets. Only diamonds with these perfect proportions and accuracy are chosen to ensure your diamond is truly dazzling. 

The quality of cut is most important to ensure your Wongs diamond Captures and refracts the light in the most sensational way, creating optimum sparkle and an everlasting love.


Clarity

Because diamonds form under tremendous heat and pressure, it is extremely rare to find a diamond that lacks any internal and external characteristics. These characteristics are a by-product of its formation and help gemmologists separate natural diamonds from synthetics and simulants, and identify individual stones. 

Here at Wongs, our diamonds are hand selected to be visually perfect to the naked eye. Any ‘inclusions’ in our diamonds are barely visible even at ten times magnification.


Colour

At Wongs, our expert team only hand select exceptional diamonds in the colourless range (D-F) which are often referred to as ‘exceptional’ or ‘rare’ white.

This pure colour is something everyone can spot – a flash of light quite sensational, appearing beautifully bright and white.Diamonds are graded from ‘D’ (colourless) to ‘Z’ (tinted). No one knows what happened to A,B,C, some say they started the scale at ‘D’ for ‘Diamond’. Colour grades are determined by comparing each diamond to a master set. Each letter grade represents a range of colour and is a measure of how noticeable a colour is.

Carat

Carats are the measure of weight in a stone, not size as is often perceived. In this instance, putting weight on can be viewed favourably, however ‘small and perfectly formed’ is also a great approach. 

At Wongs, we believe a better quality of diamond is always the best choice, regardless of the weight. In all of our rings, we engrave the diamond weight inside the shank for guarantee and reference.

There is no other gemstone quite like a diamond. It is found in the most remote places on earth, and the fact that it forms at all is something of a miracle. A diamond is a testament of endurance and strength – and not surprisingly, the ultimate symbol of love.

At Wongs, We are passionate about diamonds - each and every diamond has been hand selected by our expert team for its unique qualities.
