Diamond Pendant Designs
There is something about a diamond pendant set that is incredibly pure and undoubtedly beautiful.
Diamonds, they say, are a girl's best friend. And we agree! Who would not like dazzling, sparkling fire to hang from one's neck? No matter what you decide to do on a given day, be it that important monthly meeting at work, an evening out with the people who matter, or just a quiet afternoon at home, a diamond locket is your way of telling yourself, you matter.
At Melorra, we like to fit timeless pieces of jewellery to the best of trends, so that the diamond pendant set you are wearing is not out of place with the outfit that you have on. That's right. Our cutting-edge, 3-D printing technology-aided diamond pendant designs ensure that you look fashionable while channelling the classiness of the most expensive gemstone known to man.
Why are diamonds so expensive?
Simply put, the stone shining at the end of your diamond chain was once embedded in rocks, deep within the earth. Timeless as they are, the promises of diamonds were largely undiscovered until the late nineteenth century, before which it was only India and Brazil that had ever seen or fashioned diamonds out of those that were found on river banks.
The rich deposits of the African continent, however, opened the curtains to the world of diamond mining. Since then, deposits of the precious stone have been found in several places around the world, making the precious stone available to men and women everywhere, and consider bringing down the diamond pendant price!
Even though the price of diamonds is now such that it is increasingly made affordable by the working woman, each piece of precious jewellery you own -- be it a diamond nose pin or a pair of shining danglers -- is still a piece of history. This is why diamonds are considered to be such good investments, no matter how trendy the design, however modern its cut.
How much does a diamond's cut matter?
Picture this: All of the super-fashionable women on the screens, on the catwalk and on the red carpet; what do they have in common? That's right. A great gown and a piece of statement jewellery that shines like a million stars, and more importantly, catch the light of the cameras as nothing else does!
That's where the cut of a diamond comes in. How many times have you seen an otherwise lacklustre look completely made over by the presence of a diamond pendant set? The method in which a diamond is cut, the shape it is given and the facets that are cut into it are directly responsible for the shine and dazzle it has.
The cut of a stone is what gives it, its allure. It is a matter of great precision, and even the tiny diamond nose pin would lose its ethereal charm if cut hastily! At Melorra, we source the kind of diamonds that are crafted to perfection. They make you feel good and make you feel like you are just being you.
How else do I know that my diamond pendant set is authentic?
Luckily for you, and the countless women all over the world who are just like you, the Gemological Institute of America has devised a four-point grading system to check whether the diamonds being brought into the world are indeed worth the money you are paying for them. One of them, is, of course, the cut, and the others are the colour, the clarity, and the carat weight of the diamond.
What about colour?
We are sure you have seen that particular scene in Hollywood romantic-comedies where the hero gets down on one knee to ask the girl of his dreams to marry him. Cheesy as it is, the 'reveal' of the diamond in the box always draws gasps.
Now imagine the effect if instead of a bright white, you saw a brownish-yellow? Astounding as it might be, diamonds are originally found in a state of slight yellow, though it is the colourless ones that are considered perfect. Diamond rings for women have always traditionally been a sharp, piercing, almost transparent shade of white, though artificially coloured diamonds are gaining more and more popularity now.
Does clarity matter?
The clarity of the diamond you wear is everything. There are several markers that point out how flawed your diamond locket might be. Even the presence of the smallest of inclusions within the stone are put on record, so you have nothing to worry about!
How do I know if the diamond I buy is the carat weight I was promised?
Melorra's diamond jewellery is delivered to your doorstep. Which means that you do not need to visit a shop you hardly know, and depend blindly on the proof of quality that they show you.

The times, they are changing, and no longer is a diamond meant to be put away in the locker, to be brought out just for the weddings in the family. The woman of today is proud of her features and not afraid to show it, and what better to help her do that than one of the unique designs conceptualised in the Melorra studios keeping just her in mind?
Picture yourself in just the most ordinary of white shirts, paired with the plainest of blue denims. Or maybe the most quotidian of kurtas that you wear to work nearly every day.
Now picture yourself with a diamond pendant set that will neither be over the top, nor dominate your look, but with its sheer sleekness and its deep understanding of what your look needs right now, it will add just that specialness that your day was demanding.
We know, right?
