When purchasing an item from Diana Rafael, you will be able to choose the type of metal that your preferred piece of jewelry—such as a ring with a clarity enhanced diamond—will be made of. You will have two main options: gold or platinum.
In ancient times, long before the development of diamond cutting, people preferred diamonds in their natural state. Because there were no scientific means to improve upon Mother Nature’s product, people enthusiastically sought out diamonds with as few imperfections as possible. Diamonds with irregular, asymmetric shapes, or those with stains that inhibit the stone’s brilliance, were simply discarded.
