• About Black Diamond
Black Diamond, gemological known as Carbonado, is a natural polycrystalline diamond found in alluvial deposits in Brazil. Its natural colour is black or dark grey, and it is more porous than other diamonds.
Black Diamonds are opaque having a specific gravity of 3.1 - 3.3. They are virtually without cleavages. Just like color less diamonds, they are of great hardness that amounts to 10 in the Mohs's scale of hardness. They are full of criss-crossing scratch marks containing black deposits of Sulfides which are responsible for their opaque texture.
The major source of this black variety of diamond is Brazil. Naturally they occur in irregular and rounded carbonado fragments. In their crudest form, their physical properties vary from compact to porous. Among them, some crystals are denser having the lesser intensity of flaws. These crystals are rare and produce higher quality black diamonds after a good amount of polishing.
However, as a general rule, black diamonds come with a heavily flawed surface and a uniform presence of black is not something very common. Most part of the black diamond is actually covered by grey and dark grey elements.
So far as the black diamonds are concerned, cut is of utmost importance, because the final look of the stone depends on the fashion of the cut of this stone. Black diamonds are often pitted and pose great difficulties in cutting. But once given a reasonable cutting, they become quite unparallel in beauty and elegance.
In ancient Italy, a black diamond was regarded as the stone of reconciliation. It was believed that touch of black diamond has the power of patching up all misunderstandings between the warring couples.
• About Stainless Steel:
High quality Stainless Steel 316 is revealing a new vista for jewelry designs, as you can now be adorned with indestructible fashion statements: looks just like Platinum but 1,000 times stronger, and much less expensive. It is clear, hard, radiant, very durable, it needs little maintenance, waterproof and will never tarnish, is not subjected to oxidation (if you swim with Our jewelry they will not rust) and wear and tear.
In terms of safety: Stainless Steel 316 it is virtually allergy-safe (hypoallergenic). This is due to the fact that Stainless Steel 316 has only 10 to 14% of nickel in it and it is so tightly bound in the material that the leakage of nickel is below the threshold value set up by most of the countries.
In terms of durability, Stainless Steel is superior to most of the precious metals and can survive the toughest abuse.
Stainless Steel although readily available, increases in value through Our designer's workmanship and handling of it, especially when combined with gold, silver, pearls, rubber (PVC), precious and semiprecious stones. Imperfections and scratches, from abuse, can be easily buffed-out without damaging the integrity of the piece, unlike other traditional alloys used in the manufacture of jewelry, which if bent, or "fixed" a number of times becomes thin and weak, resulting in the untimely loss of the piece altogether.
• Work Process:
Our designs can't be duplicated by using casting techniques like traditional over-the-counter jewelry, manufactured of softer alloys: platinum, gold or silver, (that is stamped-out by machine or poured into molds, lost wax techniques), because each and every of our piece must to be worked totally by hand. Every piece of VT jewelry is hand-cut from its solid Stainless steel piece, cutting away the excess, leaving no seams, or dents spots, until the final result is reached and consequentially becomes one-of-a-kind.
• Metal Finish:
We do give to Our jewelry two different finish depends to the design and also the kind of final effect we are trying to achieve. Mirror shine and soft brushed (satin finish). The mirror shine commonly called high polished; it's very much like the platinum polished look, and the brushed finish we particularly prefer, because it gives a dramatic modernist contrast with the Yellow gold and the Black pearl.
