A symbol of two individuals’ dedication, love, and commitment to each other, an engagement ring is a momentous undertaking. It’s only natural then, that we seek for something befitting of such a sincere and heartfelt promise — one choice that you can’t go wrong with is a real, natural diamond. Here’s why:

Natural diamonds embody rarity

Diamonds are a result of a natural phenomenon. Formed from molten rocks at least 120km beneath the earth’s crust at extremely high temperatures (900°C to 1300°C) and high pressure (650,000 psi to 850,000 psi), diamonds are then embedded deep in large chunks of stone. 

This is a process that occurs miraculously and naturally over time, much like how each relationship is formed. Better yet, not all natural diamonds are created equal! Trace minerals and other conditions influence the size, colour, and clarity of a diamond, which means that it’s highly possible that what you have is literally one-of-a-kind for the unique love story of yours.

Natural diamonds are often more valuable

Natural diamonds typically retain better value compared to lab-grown diamonds. This is because naturally-formed diamonds are hard to come by and cannot be mass-produced in a laboratory, especially if they are of good quality and placed somewhere between the D to F range on the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) Grade Colour Scale. 

At Lee Hwa Jewellery, you’re assured that all their diamonds are natural diamonds. Additionally, when you purchase a Destinée or Forevermark diamond, the diamonds come with Full Value Guarantee, in which you can enjoy 100% trade-in value when you upgrade your Destinée or Forevermark diamonds for 1.5 times its value within 24 months from purchase!

Destinée (from Belgium)

Formed in 1988, AMC (sightholder of De Beers Group) has since solidified their position as the definitive source for certified diamonds. Their renowned Destinée diamonds boast the perfect 8 hearts and 8 arrows, rated “AGS Triple Zero" for its cut (the highest possible rating), by the American Gem Society (AGS) Laboratories.

To put this feat into context, the Triple Zero Cuts rating is only attained when the diamond is graded "Zero" for three important features: the perfection in proportions, symmetry, and polish. The reason why this is possible is because Destinée diamonds take Belgian Master Cutters 5 times longer to cut than an average round brilliant diamond in order to achieve that immaculate perfection — which can also represent just how special and exquisite your loved one is.

At Lee Hwa Jewellery, the Destinée diamonds for 0.50 carat and above are Triple Ideal in cut, at least a G-colour, and has clarity of VS2 and above. A match made in heaven for the lady who pursues excellence in every aspect of life, the Destinée diamond’s unique 57-facet round brilliant cut, also known as the perfect diamond, translates to unrivalled brilliance, fire, and scintillation, its perfect 8 arrows and 8 hearts mirroring your extraordinary romance.

Forevermark (from De Beers Group)

Just like how no two love stories are the same, no two Forevermark diamonds are identical. Perfect for commemorating your unique love for each other, Forevermark is a diamond brand from De Beers Group, which has diamond expertise and experience dating back to more than 130 years. 

Hand-selected with a promise that it is uniquely beautiful, rare, and responsibly sourced, less than 1% of the world's natural diamonds are eligible to become a Forevermark diamond! This is because the Forevermark process follows strict criteria that goes beyond the standard 4Cs of diamond grading.

Instead, a diamond will go through at least a seventeen-step process, rigorously examined by expert graders for any flaws, scanned by industry-leading proprietary machines to check for authenticity, carat weight, and symmetry, and then hand-examined once more for colour categorisation and inclusions. It will then be inscribed with a unique number — proof that it is of exceptional quality and utmost integrity.

Note: The Forevermark diamond is also available at Lee Hwa Jewellery in other categories such as bracelets, pendants, necklaces, and earrings for couples to celebrate their various milestones — think wedding anniversary, first child, and more!
