GOLD & DIAMOND JEWELRY
What quality of diamonds do you offer?
The Big Jewelry Store offers different type of quality when it comes to diamonds.
Our standard for custom orders is a mix of VS and SI diamonds, which we label “VS-SI” diamonds mix. All products made by The Big Jewelry Store have this mix of VS-SI by default. Diamond upgrade options are available upon request.
For those who want a higher quality in their diamonds, we offer “VS+”, a premium mix of VS-VVS diamonds.
For the top diamond qualities, we offer “VVS+”, which contain strictly VVS diamonds in the mix.
Carat Vs karat... what's the difference?
“Carat” is the unit of measuring weight used to measure the weight of diamonds (ex: a 0.33 carat diamond or a 1 carat diamond).
“Karat” is used to measure the purity of gold (ex: 18k gold, 24k gold).
What are the differences among 10k, 18k, 24k and other karats of gold?
The number preceding the letter “k” represents the number of parts of gold, out of 24.
For example, “10k gold” represents 10 parts of gold out of 24, with the remaining 14 parts being a mix of alloys.
18k gold represents 18 parts of gold out of 24.
24k gold is globally accepted as pure gold.
Visual: Gold with a higher content of gold will give off a stronger tint in color. 18k yellow gold will give off a stronger tint of yellow compared to 10k yellow gold, but won’t be as strong in color as 24k yellow gold.
Feel: Gold of higher karat content will be heavier compared to an identical piece of jewelry with lower karat content. This is due to the density of pure gold. Gold of higher karat content will be softer and more malleable than lower karat pieces.
