World’s Best Diamond’s
At Hennings we pride ourselves on sourcing the world’s best diamonds and other precious stones for our customers. This is a lifelong commitment towards maintaining the highest possible internationally recogniosed standards and delivering them to our local communities of fine jewellery lovers.
We regularly travel internationally to hand-pick special stones, searching out exquisite diamonds on our annual buying trips. We hold a range of special diamonds in stock, or can source any stone your heart desires.
One of our most exciting sourcing destinations is Antwerp in Belgium, the global capital of the diamond trade - approximately 84% of the world’s diamonds pass through this district. Diamond traders abound and this is where buyers come to find the best diamonds and jewels. Our annual trip there is a highlight of our calendar to seek out the very best in the world to bring home to South West Sydney.
As well as sourcing our own selection, we also stock Passion 8 diamonds, the perfect diamond to express our focus on excellence.
PASSION8 DIAMONDS ARE PERFECTION PERSONIFIED.
Less than 1% of the world’s diamonds are of a high enough standard to become a PASSION8 Diamond. Once hand selected, the rough stones are expertly cut to exact and perfect mathematical proportions by some of the worlds most qualified diamond cutters and polishers. The cutting can take up to 5 times longer than cutting an ordinary stone and up to 10% more rough weight will be sacrificed to achieve the perfect cut.
The result however is breathtaking. Each one of the 58 facets is cut to perfect mathematical proportions, revealing 8 perfect hearts and 8 perfect arrows within the stone. This ensures light refracting through the diamond only comes out the top surface, creating an extraordinary sparkle. Such a sparkle in fact, that PASSION8 Diamonds will perform 2-3 shades of colour whiter and brighter when dirty than an ordinary diamond.
DEPTH OF CUT
Depth of cut is another factor that we get exactly right. PASSION8 Diamonds are not too shallow and not too deep. PERFECT.
GOOD. BETTER. BEST.
PASSION8 Diamonds are precision cut in a way that creates exactly eight perfect hearts and eight perfect arrows. This perfectly symmetrical 58 facet cut ensures light refracting through the diamond only comes out the top surface. The result is an extraordinary brilliance that allows your diamond to perform amongst the best.
