The gold, the diamonds, the quality, everything you need to know about the manufacture process of edenly jewellery.
The edenly manufacture process
edenly creates its jewellery in 18 carat gold and diamonds in its workshops
When the requested piece of jewellery is not immediately available, an order is sent to the jewellers for its production (which takes around three weeks, the jewellery all being made by hand).
The producation takes into consideration the design chosen and also the size when concerning a ring.
A quality control is carried out after the creation of each piece.

The edenly diamonds
The quality of edenly diamonds
The most well known criteria for analysing the quality of a diamond are its colour and clarity.
1) The colour
The colour of a diamond is measured using an international scale ranging from D (colourless) to Z (yellow tint). At edenly, you will only find colourless or nearly colourless diamonds (D to I).
2) The purity
To measure the degree of a diamond's purity, the international purity scale is used. This ranges from F (without fault) to P3 (numerous inclusions). At edenly you will only find diamonds graded from F to SI2, that is to say which have no inclusions visible to the naked eye.
There are other criteria such as the size, the fluorescence, the symmetry, the positioning of the inclusions etc which make up the ID card for adiamond. Like a blueprint, this is unique.See the diamond guide
The authenticity certificate
edenly provides a certificate
with each piece of its jewellery detailing the weight and quality of the diamonds.
For personalised creations entailing a diamond greater than 0.5 carats, a certificate from an independent laboratory is provided. Edenly works primarily with GIA and HRD.
The origin of edenly diamonds
edenly only uses diamond merchants from within the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme. This guarantees that the diamonds are from legal sources and are conflict free.The quality of edenly's gold
Pure gold at 24 carats is too soft for the manufacture of jewellery, and is therefore mixed with other metals to harden it.
- 18 carat gold means that in every 24 g of alloy there is 18g or 75.01% of "pure gold". Its is also known as 750/1000.
- 14 carat gold means that in every 24 g of alloy there is 14g or 58.5% of "pure gold". Its is also known as 585/1000.
- 9 carat gold means that in every 24 g of alloy there is 9g or 37.5% of "pure gold". Its is also known as 375/1000.
18 carat gold therefore has more pure gold per gram than 14 carat or 9 carat gold.
All edenly jewellery is made using 18 carat gold only (except in personalised ring creation where you can choose between 18 carat and 14 carat gold).
edenly provides a certificate which each piece of jewellery giving the precise weight and qualities of the gold.
