The solitaire gifted by dear husband, mama’s necklace, grandma’s heritage diamond ring. There are diamonds you love, diamonds you dream of and diamonds you sigh for. At P. N. G. Jewellery and Gems, we know your passion for diamonds and so bring you some interesting information about this eternal emblem of commitment.
From the depths of a coal mine to a glorious crown, a diamond’s journey is amazing. The diamonds are found in Australia, Botswana, Russia, South Africa, Canada and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The bedazzling diamond is actually a crystalline mineral.
The diamond is composed of pure carbon (c). It consists of highly structured, well ordered patterns of carbon. The chemical make-up of the diamond defines its rarity and uniqueness. Diamond is a versatile gem and is crucial in many industries. In fact, less than 30% of the total diamond production goes into jewellery and over 70% in various industrial applications.
There is a reason why diamond is so expensive. During the cutting and polishing processes, approximately 50% of the rough weight is lost. For instance, in 2000 of the total estimated worldwide production of 120 million carats, only about 18 million carats ended up as polished gem quality diamonds available to the open market. That explains the cost factor. However at PNG Jewellery and Gems we have a great variety of highly affordable diamond jewellery with no compromise on quality. “PNG Jewellery & Gems is known for its high quality standards and we can proudly claim that all the diamonds and stones sold by us are assorted by four of us,” assures Padmini Gadgil of PNG.
Akshay Gadgil, Graduate Gemologist from Gemological Institute of America, Carlsbad California emphasizes that all the diamonds sold at PNG Jewelery and Gems are certified by GIA, guaranteeing the clarity and purity sold by PNG.
