These trace elements can affect the shape and colour of the diamond. Diamonds are the hardest material known to man, scoring a 10 on the Mohs scale, resulting in amazing durability and sustainability. Buy one diamond and it will last forever. The only material that can scratch a diamond is another diamond. No two diamonds are the same, the 4 C’s are used to asses the quality of the diamond.

They are formed under extremely high temperatures approximately 160 kilometres beneath the surface of the earth.
