Diamond
At Glamira, diamonds have a particular place in designs and are chosen according to stringent standards. The first and foremost critical step is to ensure the diamond must be conflict-free in order to be used in Glamira. Secondly, Glamira evaluates and categorises diamonds based on the 4Cs (colour, cut, clarity and carat) determined by GIA. The colour of a diamond describes the mix of three components: hue, saturation and tone. The colour-grading scale for diamonds runs from D to Z. A great diamond, known as D colour, should have no colour whatsoever. H colour is the colour grade that is most appropriate judged on cost effectiveness and performance ratio along with the design. That's why Glamira’s experts often pick diamonds in H colour.

Diamond cut relates to the luster, proportion and the symmetry which are adjusted throughout the cutting process. All are carried out simply to deliver the return of the magnificent light in the stone. The cut is broken up into 3 distinct levels: proportions, polish and symmetry. The cut array includes 5 levels; Outstanding, Very Good, Good, Acceptable and Poor. Furthermore, diamond shape, which is usually confused with diamond cut, refers a style or design used when forming a diamond for polishing such as the princess-cut diamond. At Glamira, you'll discover many contours of diamonds including princess, brilliant, round, trillion, cushion, heart, oval and emerald which you can use to customise your jewelry. As the consequence of carbon being subjective to great heat and pressure deep on the planet earth, natural diamonds have a variety of inner traces called 'inclusions' and traces that are external called blemishes. Diamond clarity describes the purity of a diamond along with the standards on clarity comprising the number of traces, sizes and positions. To discover an ideal cost/quality ratio, it is crucial to understand that tiny inclusions in the VVS1 to SI2 clarity grading level cannot be assessed by the naked eye. Glamira always acquires the diamonds in VS (very slightly inclusions) clarity in the collection. And diamond carat is a weight measurement of the size of a diamond.1 carat stone weighs 0.2 grams and also refers to as 100 points.

The most lovable precious stone, Diamond, is the only stone that consists of only one element in its molecular structure – carbon. Diamonds are created in a way that each of the carbon molecules is bonded to another with a symmetrical shape in every direction. Diamond earns a place as the toughest natural substance for its astonishing atomic structure. Its firmness is identified on Mohs scale with a 10. It really is tough insomuch that a diamond can only be cut by a tool created from another diamond. The name, diamond, has been derived from the Greek term adámas which means strong or unbreakable. In addition to the unremarkable firmness, it is also famous for the luster and its large dispersion speed of visible light. The formation of natural diamond requires very specific conditions which are what differentiate one diamond from another. Most diamonds are formed about 100 kilometres under the surface of Earth and carried to the surface by volcanic eruptions. On average, it takes 1 to 3.3 billion years for one diamond to be created. The gemstones were first discovered and mined in India 2,400 years ago and India is the first industrial manufacturer of diamonds. Today, they may be mined mainly in India South Africa, Australia, Canada and Brazil.


In early Roman and Greek eras, diamonds were believed to be the tears of Gods or the damaged elements of superstars falling down to our planet. Diamond was mentioned in literature in first century A D which stated that there were diamonds that covered the tips of Cupid's arrows. The Greeks and the Romans wore diamonds as amulets as they considered them to possess the safety and the strength against evil. That belief was derived from Indian mythology where diamonds were made from bolted lightning struck rocks. Furthermore, in the 13th century, a law in France forbad normal civilians to wear diamonds except for the royalties. In 1477, the diamond ring that Archduke of Austria gave to Mary of Burgundy has been marked as the very first diamond ring that a man gave to a woman. Recognised as the queen of the gems and also the jewel of queens, diamond is usually symbolised as purity, strength, power and incorruptibility, longevity, constancy, and good luck. It is also April birthstone and has been widely used as an official 60th year wedding anniversary gemstone.
