Guide to Diamonds

At Bartlett Master Jewellers, for years we cherish the traditions of love and everlasting beauty that a diamond symbolises. Let the individual care and attention of our Diamond specialist help you select the perfect diamond to celebrate your love from ‘Will you’ to ‘I do’.

Diamonds a symbol of love


There is no other gemstone quite like a diamond. It is found in the most remote places on earth, and the fact that it forms at all is something of a miracle. It takes about one ton of rock to recover less than half a carat of rough, making diamond one of the rarest and most desired gemstones in the world. A diamond is a testament of endurance and strength - and not surprisingly, the ultimate symbol of love.

No gemstone expresses human emotions more powerfully than a diamond. It may be because of their rarity, it may be because they have been around for billions of years, or it may just be because of their unique beauty and universal appeal. For hundreds of years, diamonds have been given to celebrate important moments in people's lives, such as engagements, weddings, anniversaries and the birth of a child. Today, more and more diamonds are being bought as symbols of independence and success.
