The choice is simple. The best, or nothing.
Buying diamond jewellery is notoriously complex. Are you getting the high quality you expect? Are you getting value for money? Are you buying something as deeply special as you want it to be?
However much research you undertake, it’s easy to go wrong or be misled. Until now. Montluc jewellery only contains the finest diamonds in the world. Period. So when it comes to choosing the right diamond, we give you no choice at all. The best. Or nothing.
Gives a great diamond its edge.
The quality of any diamond is determined by the famous 4Cs. Cut. Colour. Clarity. Carat. The cut is responsible for the ‘Oh wow, I can’t believe how much it sparkles’ factor. If you’re in the market to stop conversations, light up rooms, and watch friends fail to hide their envy, focus on the cut.
A well-cut diamond appears brilliant and fiery. A poorly cut diamond looks dark and lifeless. It’s that simple. And it’s all down to the quality of workmanship. Which is where we come into our own. Montluc is, quite simply, a cut above.
Why stop at Excellent?
The vast majority of diamonds are graded from Poor to Excellent as per official GIA (Gemological Institute of America) gradings. Montluc, by contrast, only ever uses the very top standard of quality that goes one step further. Two, actually. Our Triple Excellent cut is the best there is. If you’re looking for that sparkling, blazing brilliance that appears to reflect all the light in the world at once, look no further.
Or rather, the absence of colour.
Less really is more. The less colour present in a diamond, the more valuable, the more rare, the more reassuringly perfect it is. Our diamonds are as pure and colourless as nature permits.
Our small diamonds under 0.20ct all meet the top colourless grades, from D (Absolutely colourless and very rare) to F (Colourless and rare).
Our larger diamonds over 0.20ct all meet the very top grade: D.
A promise you can see through.
The clarity grade of a diamond indicates the number of blemishes, flaws and imperfections. As you may be expecting by now, we use only the most pure, most perfect diamonds possible.
Our small diamonds under 0.20ct all meet the best clarity gradings that current supplies allow, ranging from Flawless to VVS2.
Our larger diamonds above 0.20ct all meet the very top grade: Flawless.
Which says it all really.

The size of your carbon footprint.
The carat weight tells you how much a diamond weighs. In metric measurements, one carat is 200 milligrams. Carats are subdivided into 100 points, allowing exceptional precision. So a diamond weighing 0.50 carats is a ‘fifty pointer.’
The 5th C.
