Day after day, at the heart of the workshop, our expert gemologists research and select the most exceptional stones. Only gems that meet the very strictest selection criteria are retained.
The criteria for each diamond, even the smallest, are among the most demanding in the world of jewelry (See the 5Cs at Van Cleef & Arpels). Simple quality standards do not suffice when identifying an exceptional gem. With their most precious tool - their eyes - the gemologists inspect and examine the stones one by one, in search of a stone with character.
They observe and consider the size, shape, color, and clarity of the stone at different times of day, retaining only the diamonds with the extra spirit that makes their heart beat a little faster. In the end, for Van Cleef & Arpels, selecting diamonds is to not only have the most demanding criteria, but also to be able to discover the emotion hidden within each stone.
