9 February, 2017

 

Love & Co. is pleased to announce that we are the Asia’s first retailer to partner with the International Institute of Diamond Grading and Research (IIDGR); a De Beers group company, to launch the new Lovemarque Diamond.

A new standard of diamond grading which goes beyond the traditional 4Cs of Cut, Clarity, Colour and Carat to bring the fifth C – Confidence, each Lovemarque Diamond bears the inscription of the Love & Co. exclusive Rose Hallmark and IIDGR’s unique ID number. The inscriptions are completely invisible to the naked eye, made possible with IIDGR’s proprietary inscription technology.

Part of the world’s leading diamond company and combining 120 years of diamond industry experience with the innovative technology solutions developed in-house at De Beers, IIDGR has a rich heritage and provides accurate and consistent assessment services for naturally occurring

 diamonds in laboratories based in the United Kingdom, India and Belgium. On top of a certificate issued by IIDGR, each diamond will carry the independent approval of the Société Générale de Surveillance which ensures compliance with the most stringent international diamond grading standards.

Each Lovemarque diamond is stringently and responsibly sourced. Cut to perfection by master craftsmen with over a decade of experience, each Lovemarque diamond attains the highest cut grade – Excellent by IIDGR and achieves the highest grade – Ultimate for light performance, independently assessed by Sarine Technologies in accordance to four parameters – brilliance, sparkle, fire and light symmetry. Committed to quality and excellence, Love & Co. also conducts rigorous checks of 50 additional parameters to ensure that the stringent standards of the Lovemarque diamond are met.
