Why are diamonds so valuable?
Diamondsare one of the most admired stones on planet Earth, and have been one of the most sought after jewels for thousands of years. Formed billions of years ago, diamonds are extremely rare and are only correctly handled by skilled experts.
Incredibly powerful forces are required to create diamonds. Taking place in the depths of the Earth’s crust at unimaginable temperatures and pressures, the diamond retrieval and protection process is very difficult, and therefore, renders diamonds as extremely rare.
From the diamonds that are mined today, approximately 50% are thought to be of a high enough quality to be sold on the diamond market. AtLinneys, the hard work is done for you, and you can be confident that each piece of diamond jewellery that you try or view has been immaculately sourced, protected and handcrafted to extremely high standards.
