Diamond Collection FAQs
How can I verify the authenticity of a diamond?
There are several methods to confirm the genuineness of a diamond. One quick at-home test involves exhaling on the diamond; real diamonds dissipate heat rapidly and do not fog up.
Rest assured, all diamonds in Time Trader's collection come with a guarantee of authenticity, providing you with genuine and timeless pieces.
What is the ideal size for a 1-carat diamond?
The perception of an ideal diamond size varies based on personal preference and cultural norms. A 1-carat diamond is often considered a substantial size, striking a balance between elegance and making a statement.
Its noticeable presence without being overly ostentatious makes it a popular choice for engagement rings and various jewellery pieces. Moreover, factors like cut, clarity, and setting can enhance its visual allure.
Which diamond cut exhibits the most brilliance and sparkle?
The sparkle of a diamond, commonly referred to as its "brilliance," is predominantly influenced by its cut.
The Round Brilliant cut is universally recognised for its exceptional sparkle, thanks to its precisely designed 57 or 58 facets, which maximise light reflection.
The meticulous arrangement of these facets enables the diamond to capture and reflect light optimally, resulting in unparalleled brilliance.
However, other cuts like Oval, Cushion, and Princess also offer a significant degree of sparkle.
