Humphrey pendant diamond 12 mm
Diamond pendant 12 mm wide, stainless steel
1 brilliant approx. 0.06 ct. 2.5 mm, TW-Vs, Damascus steel
Damascus steels are said to have legendary properties. People speak of their unbelievable durability, films like 'Highlander' create an almost mystical flair about the 'folded' blades and even today one hears that, for example, a knife made of Damascus should be able to split nails without being damaged.
The starting material for the production of Damascus steel is iron with different contents of accompanying elements such as carbon, manganese, silicon, etc. . Damascus steel is folded, forged, folded again, forged, ...
This creates individual inner structures. Humphrey uses selected Damascus steels with suitable patterns.
The result is an optical treat that impresses with its alternating dark and light lines. They are created by etching the surface, because this is where the different layers emerge. Each piece of jewelry is unique and exceptional.
The pendant features a pattern that is vaguely reminiscent of wood grain. These structures go through and through and can be re-etched at any time. Each pattern is unique and cannot (!) be influenced. The pattern is what it is. All edges are softened and feel soft.
In this pendant, the diamond is classically set in a straight cut.
The diamond is held in place by the force (tension) of the stainless steel pendant. He seems to float in the ring band. To be sure, two notches in the shape of a diamond are made in the pendant using computer-controlled machines.
Humphrey has perfected this setting technique since the mid-1990s and offers a 2-year guarantee on the secure hold of the gemstone provided it is handled properly. However, the lifespan is unlimited. Most of the jewelry ever produced by Humphrey is still worn.
The 4 C's are important for diamonds. Diamonds are judged at 10x magnification:
- Carat (weight): In this piece of jewellery, the diamond weighs 0.06 ct. (2.5mm diameter)
- Color: The diamonds we use are F or Top Wesselton color
- Clearity: Humphrey generally uses VS stones. VS stands for very small inclusions that are barely visible to the naked eye
- Cut: Is the most important C for us. This is where it is decided whether the diamond will sparkle in normal light or whether it is shabby. Manufacturers often save here. Humphrey only uses brilliant cut diamonds.
Humphrey is careful to only purchase diamonds from suppliers who comply with the United Nations Resolutions. Therefore we can guarantee that our diamonds are not affected by any conflict.
A diamond brings joy on many days and for a lifetime!
