About our diamonds

1
Carat

Carat is the unit of measurement for diamond weight. Carat weight alone does not determine how large or small a stone looks. Cut and shape influence the appearance of size as well.

Color

The rarest and most ideal diamonds are colorless, or grade D. As diamonds show increase hues of yellow, their color grade decreases. Most jewelers use grade I-J diamonds and lower. We only use D color diamonds.

Clarity

Diamonds may have imperfections called inclusions. The fewer and smaller, the clearer the diamond. Most jewelers sell SI stones; we only use IF/VVS.

Cut

Cut is the most important determinant of sparkle and the only element determined by craftsmanship rather than by chance. To achieve the play of light that makes superior diamonds shine maximally, Or & Elle’s craftsmen cut and polish each facet with breathtaking precision.

About our diamonds

A round diamond scintillates from 57 facets. This shape is as timeless as it is brilliant.

Round Round

Ovals cover a larger surface area than other cuts of comparable carat weight. The length and width of two ovals with the same carat weight can vary. Color is paramount for this shape.

Oval Oval

Pears, also known as teardrop diamonds, are among the most unique cuts. They have the brilliance of a round and the elongating effect of a marquise.

Pear Pear

Emerald is a regal, step-cut diamond, that gives the appearance of a hall of mirrors. Clarity is paramount for this shape.

Emerald Emerald

Marquise cuts are softly curved diamonds that point at both ends. They have the largest surface area per unit of carat weight.
