There is nothing quite so timeless and elegant as the understated sparkle of an everyday diamond necklace. Whether it is a small single diamond on a chain, a tiny cross or other religious symbol, the simplicity of that look can become part of our own personal style. We had this in mind when we created our collection of Diamond Critters. Beautifully crafted diamond jewelry that a woman would never want to take off. Literally twenty-four hour, seven day styles. Our Diamond Critters start with 18k gold, to give these diamond necklaces the quality and long-term value required for such everyday pieces. For the diamonds, we choose FG color, VS2 clarity stones, a grade of diamond that denotes superior quality. We then set those diamonds using a micro pave technique, setting each stone under microscopic equipment that allows for the finest finished diamond jewelry look. But building that wonderfully crafted diamond necklace was just the beginning. At Monica Rich Kosann we believe that Jewelry should not just be beautiful, it should also empower you. It should mean something. So we treated each Diamond Critter like a miniature diamond charm, giving each a special meaning that any of us can identify with. The dragonfly for grace, the snake for never fear, the bee for creativity are just a few examples. We then took each of those meanings and engraved them on a simple gold tag adjacent to our lobster claw clasp closure on each necklace. That engraved tag becomes an empowering reminder of the meaning behind every Diamond Critter, so that when one wears it, or receives it as a gift they know the special meaning behind their diamond necklace. The Diamond Critters are available in 18k yellow, white and rose gold, and if you don't see the critter you want in the right gold color, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work with you to create your own custom diamond jewelry experience.
