Only a Bunda diamond

The diamond is the universal symbol of love and fidelity but the purity and quality of a stone begins with its source. Over a decade ago, BUNDA established a relationship with BHP Billiton Diamonds Inc. securing a supply of the worlds very best diamonds. This relationship built on dedication, rarity, trust and premium choice, forged our position in the international diamond business.

Choosing a diamond

The well known system of the Four C’s provides an excellent grading system there are many more factors that affect the value and beauty of a diamond and the generic diamond certificate does not have enough information to truly inform the jeweller or the buyer about the stone.

Over the past 20-30 years there has been a significant amount of scientific work in trying to understand how the cut of a diamond affects the performance of light: the Brilliance and fire in a stone, and BUNDA has always been at the forefront of these advancements.

The 4 c's

The quality of a diamond is an equation conventionally divided by four categories of distinction. These are cut, colour, clarity and carat.

These standards help you select exactly the grade, style and value of the diamond you have set, but they are not the ultimate hallmarks of desire. Diamonds are living stones with compressed vital energy so their selection also needs a degree of intuition and personal judgment weighed against technical standards.

The balance struck with every diamond dwells in the rarity of each stone and its substantial quality given all of the elements involved. The true value of a diamond is the sum of its parts…plus magic that cannot be measured. Some stones simply speak to you more than others. They choose you.
