Faux Pas?

One can easily get fooled looking at what appears to be a diamond these days. It’s interesting and rather amazing, that diamante jewellery can be so easily mistaken for real diamonds. OK, unless you’re a diamond specialist, that can tell one special gem from another, it’s fairly easy to get a good quality faux these days. Just don’t let your man know this is the case… The professionals advise that we should be looking for the four C’s in a real diamond - Colour, Clarity, Carat and Cut. But we really suggest there should be a few more C’s here – what happened to Cost, Cubic Centimetres, Coolness and Can we use his Credit Card? For real diamonds, it’s no problem at all to find a jungle of amazing, posh, expensive boutiques. As long as you're willing to re-mortgage your house and beg/borrow/steal the down payment. Finding good quality faux bijou on the other hand, is a little bit more tricky. The German label Thomas Sabo is our favourite. The label has shops and retailers world wide, Pink in Stockholm keep an excellent selection. Other good quality jewellery labels we favour are the Danish Carre Copenhagen, Dyrberg Kern, Frits Heiring and Swedish designer Kum Kum (though the latter one has a rather unfortunate website that doesn’t do the products justice).
