'Fancy' diamonds (anything non-round) are not given a cut grading by the GIA, because there are too many variables to calculate within these different shapes. Therefore Kensington hand-select only pear, oval, cushion, emerald, princess, radiant, asscher and marquise diamonds which have internal cut proportions we would classify as 'Excellent'. Any diamond not living up to our expectations of maximum brilliance and sparkle will be discarded.
Near colorless diamonds are significantly cheaper than colorless diamonds. They possess a slightly more noticeable tint of color, however are still of a high enough quality to be used for an engagement ring.
An excellent choice at a lower price point than VVS grades. A high quality diamond, with inclusions/blemishes that can be picked up under 10x magnification, but remain invisible to the naked eye. (Without magnification it would be impossible to tell a VVS1 and VS1 diamond apart.)
We only stock diamonds that have been certified by the GIA; the world’s largest and most reputable independent grading laboratory. They are recognised as the strictest graders of diamonds in the industry, giving you the peace of mind that you are always getting exactly what you paid for.
