  • Unmounted Certificated Diamonds
  • Please note: Certificated diamonds are sealed by the certificating laboratory for security and to protect the authenticity of the encapsulated diamond. Should the capsule be tampered with we will be unable to make a full refund should you wish to return the item. We therefore ask you to examine the diamond within its capsule and if you decide you wish to return it please do not tamper with the capsule.
  • Certificated Diamonds
  • How can I be sure my certificated diamond is a mined diamond or a lab created diamond?

    The certificates for the mined diamonds and the lab created diamonds look different.  The description on the certificate for a laboratory grown diamond is quite clearly Laboratory Grown Diamond. For a mined diamond the description is Natural Diamond. The certificate number for both mined and laboratory grown diamonds is lasered on the girdle of the stone so there can be no confusion which is which. You can be sure whether you choose a mined or a lab diamond you will receive a stone of the correct origin. Please note: stones of less than 0.30 carat weight are not normally certificated and rings containing accent diamonds can be set with either CVD Laboratory grown or mined diamonds for the main centre stone. The accent diamonds will be mined for both options.

  • What is typical price?
  • The typical price is the price that the same or a similar item is available for purchase online or in a high street store. Similar means that the specifications are the same, for example the same metal, the same diamond qualities and carat weight. There may be slight design differences but these differences will not affect the value of the item. We monitor items that are for sale in competitor's stores to make sure our prices are always advantageous to the consumer.
  • How long is a quote valid for a bespoke item?
  • A quotation is valid for 30 days after which time we will need to re-quote as precious metal or gemstone prices may have changed. VAT will be charged at the rate applicable when the payment is made to us.
  • Are the images accurate?
  • We try and ensure that the images are as true a representation of the items as we can get, depending on the type of monitor used there may be some slight colour differences and if printing an image the printer quality may be different. The images are not shown actual size but where possible we add the dimensions to help make your choice easier. Items shown on a chain will be supplied with a chain but the chain supplied may vary slightly from that shown. The value will be consistent with the supplied item.
  • Are all finger sizes always available?
  • We try to have a holding stock of most sizes, however some sizes (typically H,I,W,X,Y,Z) may have a longer delivery time as these sizes may have to be specially made for you. We will let you know when you place your order of the delivery time, alternatively you can email us first for advice to hello@nightingale.co.uk.
