THE ONLY LIMIT IS THE DESIGNER'S IMAGINATION

 

After being cut, polished and categorized, diamonds are then sold via one of the 24 registered diamond exchanges (also known as 'bourses') located around the world or direct to wholesalers or diamond jewelry manufacturers.

Manufacturers craft diamond jewelry commissioned by a retailer or other jewelry designers. They may also create jewelry – designed by in-house teams – and sell it direct to retailers. Transforming loose diamonds into jewelry takes great skill, creatively and technically.

Diamond manufacturers create pieces with all kinds of precious stones and metals. The most popular setting is the solitaire, for rings, earrings or pendants. But there are countless exciting designs that can be found in retailers around the world.
