Below are some Diamond FAQs and more specific answers to general questions about diamonds.
WHAT ARE MELEE DIAMONDS?
Melee diamonds are tiny diamonds that weigh less than 0.5 carats and serve a variety of purposes in the diamond industry. They are often used in custom work, as cost effective methods of adding layers of brilliance, and frequently used in repair and replacement work.
Melee diamonds can either be single cut or full cut, and are usually sold in parcels that are sorted according to weight. A single cut melee diamond uses a 16 facet cutting style, with 8 facets on the crown, and 8 facets on the pavilion. Full cut melee diamonds are among the most widely used in jewelry, and features the same 57 facet cutting style found in modern round diamonds, just scaled down to a smaller size.
ARE YOUR DIAMONDS CONFLICT-FREE?
Conflict-free diamonds imply that the gems were not obtained due to human rights abuses, child labor, violence, or environmental degradation.
