Elfjoy diamonds come along other exquisite gems at elfjoy. We pride ourselves in soulful, unique and rarest stones and so are our diamonds. A soulful diamond has an outsider’s spirit, with its bare, unaltered beauty of dimed color, uneven shape, curious light and strong personality, to embrace forever.
As we firmly stand by our philosophy, the diamonds we use could not be the commonly used 4C’s (unification of qualities -color, clarity, cut and carat - popularized in the 1940s by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America), to achieve a common standard for appraising the stone). We want our diamonds to be free spirits, vibrant with individual luster, as lovingly made and carried by mother nature for billions of years. With their particular inner life that ignites our admiration, the following are the kinds of diamonds we use the most./p>

Amongst those, we deeply cherish the ones with the ‘champagne’ hue – the yellows and browns, which have delicate glow to them.
