Our jewelry is manufactured using a combination of machinery and handmade techniques to ensure utmost perfection. Our grooving machinery sets the diamond in such a perfect way that it is impossible to see that these are smaller diamond put together to create an illusion. Then through handmade techniques, we use gold wiring to join all the pie-cut diamonds together to the gold to ensure that none of the diamonds can fall out.
Each jewelry passes a strict quality control that our team assess before it leaves the factory to ensure that the jewelry has been made to design and perfection.
We have carried out multiple quality control tests on our jewelry to make sure that our manufacturing techniques ensure that the diamonds will not fall off. The testing we have tried are: pressure testing, altitude-drop test, water-resistance test and accidental hit tests. Our jewelry has successfully passed all these tests. However, we cannot take guarantee if any of the diamonds fall out because of heavy trauma or conditions that are out of our control.
