Welcome to the new ATTIC realm. We hope you stay a while.
Clear as ice, or sprinkled with magic? Most diamonds contain some trace elements within their structure. These “inclusions” - consisting of carbon particles, crystals, or air pockets tagging along in the diamond’s billion-year formation, can affect the colour, clarity and appearance of diamonds. While to some, these visible features are seen as imperfections, we happen to see them as a diamond’s unique fingerprint - the birthmarks that make them truly one of a kind. “Salt and pepper” diamonds appear to have a sprinkling of inclusions both dark and light that are distinct to the naked eye. Grey diamonds (shown above) on the other hand have much finer inclusions formed close together creating an even distribution within the stone, colouring the diamond overall. Meanwhile, the wide tonal range in champagne diamonds (a colour caused by internal brown grain lines from the distortion in the arrangement of crystal molecules) can go from as light as the bubbly it’s named for, or as dark as molasses. Whatever your preference, ATTIC is always on the active hunt to bring you hand-picked diamonds with a little bit of magic.
