chosen piece to an independent gemlab based in Hatton Garden in London,
considered the UK capital of diamonds! Highly trained and experienced
Gemmologists will appraise your piece and issue a jewellery report. The reports

is not a valuation of your diamond, but a stamp of authenticity for your peace
of mind. The diamond jewellery is not necessarily more valuable because of it.
Care For Your Diamonds!

the jewellery are loose or look cracked then cleaning is better left to the
professionals! Always apply lotions and potions before putting on your jewellery (allowing some time

antique jewellery. Don’t forget the underside of the diamond if you can
get to it. After cleaning with soapy water, make sure everything is
rinsed off in clean (warm – not hot) water and dry the item.
