The Floeting Diamond® patented setting enables the diamond to visually float above the jewellery in a secure setting that maximises light return so the diamond can shine more brightly. The Floeting® Diamond has achieved the highest and most coveted American Gem Society Triple Zero Ideal diamond grade. Each individual Floeting® Diamond has a unique and traceable serial number.
No claws or clasps. No overarching metal.
An idea that could only have been imagined by The Village Goldsmith
At The Village Goldsmith we believe that true innovation is created when you are willing to go beyond the point that others may deem ‘too hard’. That through perseverance, passion, and creativity - what was once thought to be impossible, becomes possible. We respect tradition but are not bound to it. We look for creative opportunities and are forever curious. It’s this approach that enabled us to break the boundaries of traditional jewellery design and diamond setting to not only imagine but bring to life the vision of The Floeting® Diamond.
It took more than a decade to perfect the cut profile of The Floeting® Diamond so it would maximise the diamond’s light return to create unmatched scintillation and sparkle. A design as pure and clean as this leaves no room for imperfection. Which is why The Floeting® Diamond has been engineered down to the micron level and extensively tested by Callaghan Innovation, one of the world’s premier science and engineering institutes, for strength and durability. The setting is proven to be over 20% stronger than traditional settings.
CERTIFIED BY AMERICAN GEM SOCIETY LABORATORIES
The Floeting® Diamond has achieved the coveted American Gem Society Triple Zero Ideal diamond grade. The highest and most coveted cut grade a diamond can receive is AGS Ideal. The Floeting® Diamond has also achieved The Gemological Institute of America's Triple X grade, referring to the Floeting® Diamond as having excellent cut, polish and symmetry.
Our diamonds are sourced from one of the world’s best Responsible Jewellery Council certified diamond cutting facilities. They have the technology to track the diamonds from the mine to finger and ensure the diamonds we use are ethically sourced.
Inspiration for The Floeting® Diamond came after decades of being asked by clients to design a diamond ring without claws.
"I stepped back from the traditional mindset of how to make jewellery and put all convention aside. I went back to basics. I imagined a hand, naked except for a diamond floating upon it. The challenge then was how to connect the two, throw the conventional away and begin to dream of artful simplicity that forms a connection between the diamond and the hand. The Floeting® Diamond was born.
I hope you love it as much as I do."
- Ian Douglas, Inventor of The Floeting® Diamond
