Why the white diamond and the black diamond?
The white and the black do not have different shades, they are raw luminosities and are therefore, timeless. The symbolic of the white and black is powerful, it is the duality, the yin & the yang, the force of attraction between two opposites. It is up to everyone to define their white and black.
The diamonds of Maison D.Bachet
White diamonds and coloured diamonds of the jewelry house D.Bachet are chosen in respect of the Kimberley process and under the 4Cs criteria established by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America), renowned for being rigorous about the diamond’s selection.
THE 4CS OF DIAMONDS
Cut:The cut pertains to the angles and proportions of a diamond. This is a determining criterion as the light is reflected from one facet to another. The cut impacts the diamond’s brilliance and intensity.
Carat:The term carat refers to a diamond's weight. Although the diamond’s weight is important, we will require more from a diamond an ideal cut, perfect clarity and color.
Clarity:A diamond clarity scale was established by the GIA in order to classify the diamond according to its clarity grade, from flawless to the lowest clarity:
FL, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, SI3, I1, I2, I3
The clarity of our diamonds goes from FL to VS2.
Colour:The value of a diamond is considerably impacted by the colour.
For a coloured diamond, every colour has its own characteristics about its assessment.
For a white diamond, the GIA’s color-grading scale goes from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow).
Our white diamonds are graded D to F, that is, they are colorless.
MAISON D.BACHET’S 5C
The « Triple Ex » criterion
This criterion means that the cut grade, the polish and the symmetry are graded excellent on the GIA report.
The black diamond of the creations of the jewelry house Bachet is a natural brown or grey coloured diamond, treated with heat in order to obtain its deep dark colour, intense and homogeneous.
The selection criteria of a black diamond
As a result of its opacity, the 4cs rule for assessing the quality of the white diamonds and colored diamonds does not apply for black diamonds.
We use the quality scale going from A, AA to AAA, which means that the cut grade, the polish and the symmetry are graded excellent, thus AAA.
These criteria respected, the homogeneous colour and the intensity of the black colour will be guaranteed.
Our black diamonds are AAA quality.
