For two generations, the Dracakis family have sourced fine diamonds from across the globe for their discerning clients in Sydney’s north shore and beyond. Dracakis Diamonds are different – their sparkle is bright, their brilliance breathtaking – why?
Our dedicated team of gemologists, paying close attention to the tradition 4C’s of traditional diamond grading select each and every diamond by hand.
The most important factor in determining a diamonds value, beauty and sparkle – has nothing to do with the colour or clarity, but rather the diamonds cut.
Beautifully proportioned, well-cut diamonds sparkle better, and brighter, than any other diamonds you can find.
With the exception of IF graded diamonds, all-natural diamonds have minor imperfections – the type of imperfection, size, shape, and position within the crystal can impact the value and beauty of the diamond.
By selecting our diamonds by hand, our team sources beautifully eye-clean diamonds of every clarity.
In diamond grading, colour refers to the lack of tint within a diamond. The less colour, the rarer, the more valuable a diamond becomes.
Our expert gemologists select beautiful colourless and near colourless diamonds for our engagement collections – but we also source spectacular tinted diamonds of every hue, and specialise in sourcing rare coloured diamonds, which are graded using a separate set of characteristics, depending on the colour.
Importantly, when we talk about carats, we talk about the weight of a diamond, not the size or measurements.
With this in mind, consider two diamonds of equal carat weight, with different values and beauty because of their cut – or other characteristics.
Diamond fluorescence, in its most simple form, is the effect that ultraviolet (UV) light has on a diamond.
Fluorescence is incredibly common, in fact, 1 in 3 certified diamonds exhibit some degree of fluorescence, and in most cases the colour is blue.
Leading international studies show that for the overwhelming majority of diamonds, the strength of fluorescence has no widely noticeable effect on a diamonds appearance.
In many instances, observers prefer the appearance of diamonds that have medium to strong fluorescence.
