Of course not! In fact, we encourage you to choose your diamond separately - this is what makes your jewelry unique!

Yes! Almost Every ring on the Motif Jewels website is available for purchase, regardless of whether or not you purchase a center diamond from us. Many rings, however, cannot be manufactured unless we have the diamond in our possession. Tension settings, rings with diamond halos, and other unique designs fall into that category. In those instances we require that you send the diamond to our offices and charge a $100 setting fee. You can also order an insurance appraisal for an additional $50. To order those designs, please contact our offices and we will provide you with an exact shipping and insurance quotation. For all other designs, you can complete your order through our online shopping cart. When you check out with just a setting (and not a diamond), please provide us with the exact shape and millimeter dimensions of your diamond so we can include properly sized prongs.

Please Note: While we will take every precaution to ensure that your diamond is professionally mounted into our ring setting, Motif Jewels cannot be responsible for any damage that may occur during the setting process. CZ (cubic zirconia), diamond simulants, clarity-enhanced diamonds, gemstones, or other diamond substitutes are particularly prone to damage. Any diamond simulants or enhanced diamonds should be clearly marked as such when sent to our offices. We also reserve the right to charge additional fees for diamonds or gemstones that are greater than 7mm in diameter.

The MOTIF JEWELS inscription shown in our online product images is to protect the copyright of our photographs and videos. Your ring will only be stamped with the metal type (18kt or Platinum) and the "MJ" hallmark.

Every loose diamond, ring and piece of jewelry listed on the website is sold with a 100% money back guarantee. Designing your own ring using our system or having your diamond mounted into any ring does not make the ring custom. Custom orders refer to ring designs that are not on the Motif Jewels website.

Please note: all returns on engraved rings will require a $50 re-polishing fee.

Our Diamonds and Jewelry

A Gemological Institute of America (GIA), American Gem Society (AGS), or International Gemological Institute (IGI) diamond certificate assures the value and quality of your diamond. GIA, AGS and IGI are the gold standard in diamond grading. Their reports detail key characteristics of each diamond.

The Four C's - Carat (size), Color, Clarity and Cut - are the industry grade standard from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Every diamond is specifically graded on these features.

A diamond's cut determines how effectively it returns light to the viewer's eye: an ideal cut diamond appears brilliant and fiery, while poorly cut stones look dark and lifeless. Ideal-cut diamonds often appear larger than stones of the same carat weight. To learn more about cuts, click here.

"Eye-Clean" is a term used to describe a diamond that is clean to an unaided eye in a face-up position from a distance of 8 to 10 inches. Diamonds of VS2 or higher in quality will usually be eye-clean. Diamonds of SI1, SI2 and I1 need to be visually inspected to determine whether any inclusions are visible from the top. We can inspect any diamond at a minimal fee.

We ship every loose diamond and diamond engagement ring with an independent GIA, AGS or IGI lab report. This report can be examined by a qualified gemologist and compared against the unique characteristics of your diamond.

Yes. All diamonds on our website are available for purchase.

Smaller diamonds (often called melee) are cut in factories around the world and are available in a variety of qualities.

The lowest quality goods are usually labeled as "commercial" and consist of I/J/K color and I1 clarity. "Promotional" goods are higher in both color and clarity, but are still cut for maximum weight. The highest quality diamonds are often referred to as "Collection". Collection diamonds are finer in both color and clarity. They're precisely cut to maximize fire and brilliance. Collection quality goods are only available from specialty dealers.

We pride ourselves on using collection diamond melee in all of our engagement designs.

Motif Jewels only sells diamonds that are 100% natural and untreated. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the American Gem Society (AGS), and the International Gemological Institute (IGI) will not issue grading reports on diamonds that have been treated or enhanced, so purchasing our diamonds - which are all GIA, AGS or IGI certified which is another guarantee that your diamond is natural.

Every gemstone used in our jewelry was mined from the earth. We do not sell synthetic or lab created gemstones.

Yes. It is very common for natural gemstones to be heated. Heating the stone can intensify color and clarity, making the gemstone more beautiful and valuable. In addition, emeralds are commonly infused with a colorless oil, wax or resin to improve their appearance and luster. Nearly all rubies, sapphires, and emeralds on the jewelry market today are heated or treated in some fashion.

Yes, very slightly. In order to give 18kt White Gold a pure white color, it is plated with Rhodium. This is a standard practice for 14kt and 18kt White Gold jewelry. Over time, the Rhodium plating may wear off. When that occurs, the true color of the white gold (a slightly buttery off-white) will appear. Motif Jewels offers lifetime free rhodium plating on all our jewelry.

Conflict-free diamonds are gems that were not obtained due to human rights abuses, child labor, violence, or environmental degradation. At Motif Jewels, we make sure that our customers receive conflict-free diamonds. Our internal guidelines exceed government requirements.We only purchase polished diamonds from professional members of the diamond trade. We have contracts with our suppliers that guarantee that their diamonds are conflict-free.
