Centuries of grading the finest gems to satisfy the most discerning clientele enables us to source gems of singular brilliance and quality.
No two diamonds are the same, however there is a universal measure by which the beauty of a diamond is judged called the 4 C’s – cut, colour, clarity and carat.
The shape and skill of the chosen polished cut determines the brilliance of the diamond whilst diamond colour is graded from D (colourless) to Z (tinted). With clarity, a flawless diamond is extremely rare, but many can be visually perfect to the naked eye. Carats are a measure of weight rather than size, but when skillfully cut both small and large diamonds are truly beautiful.
We source our gems and precious stones ethically, following The Kimberley Process, an international certification scheme that regulates the market in rough diamonds and inhibits the trade in conflict diamonds.
We are licensed to purchase Fair trade gold, ensuring not only that small-scale and artisanal miners receive a fair price for their produce, but that they also receive community support, through education, medical care and environmental projects. The Standards include strict requirements on working conditions, health and safety, handling chemicals, women’s rights, child labour and protection of the environment.
We offer all manner of cuts across a range of sizes, clarity and shapes including round, oval, pear, marquise, heart, cushion, and our own unique Eternal Cut™.
In setting our stones, our master craftsmen employ a range of modern and traditional techniques, handcrafting pieces of unparalleled style and elegance.
Our original Eternal Cut™ with its unique central petal design is exclusive to The House of Garrard.
The cut features 81 facets, as opposed to a brilliant cut, which has 57. All of the extra facets are focused around the culet (base of the stone), to intensify the light flow and create a magnified brilliance. This soft, diffused brilliance is often compared to a flower blossoming.
These unique diamonds are available from 0.50cts and each Eternal Cut™ diamond is lasered with the stone’s GIA report number.
At the House of Garrard, we have a long tradition of intricate design and crafting to the highest level of detail. Inspired by our heritage, we are driven by modernity, both in our approach to design and the techniques we employ.
Today, our design team draws inspiration from our precious archives, blending this unique heritage with contemporary style to create spectacular pieces for the modern woman.
