When it comes to choosing an engagement ring, the options seem endless. Should you go for the timeless elegance of a diamond or opt for the excitement of a vibrant gemstone? It's a decision that holds great significance, symbolizing your commitment and love.

In this guide, our Portland gemologists help you navigate through the facets of both diamonds and gemstones, so you can uncover the option that best resonates with you and your partner's style and values.


Understanding Diamonds

Diamonds have long been the epitome of elegance and sophistication. With their timeless and unparalleled brilliance, they represent enduring love and commitment. From traditional cuts to unconventional choices, at Malka Diamonds, we ensure there's a diamond for every preference.


Exploring Diverse Cuts

Classic round brilliants, avant-garde pears, and vintage cushions! There are so many cuts to cater to all tastes. Each cut possesses its own unique charm, allowing you to express your individuality effortlessly. Take a look at some of them:

  • Round Brilliant: Classic and timeless, it offers exceptional sparkle and elegance.
  • Emerald Cut: Understated and refined, it highlights clarity with its elongated shape and step-cut facets.
  • Oval Cut: Versatile and romantic, a combination of a round diamond with an elongated silhouette.
  • Pear Shape: Elegant and unique, symbolizes everlasting love with its graceful teardrop shape.
  • Cushion Cut: Soft and romantic, balanced between vintage charm and modern elegance with its rounded corners.

And our favorite, the Malka Allure Cut. A captivating blend of elongated cushion and emerald cuts, the Malka Allure Cut maximizes clarity and brilliance for a delicate, glass-like effect that's simply breathtaking.

Salt and Pepper Diamonds

If you're drawn to unconventional beauty, our alternative ring collection showcases stunning salt and pepper diamonds. These diamonds have a captivating speckled look, like stars in the night sky.

What sets salt and pepper diamonds apart is their inclusion patterns, which create a tapestry of light and dark flecks within the stone. Each diamond is truly unique, with its intricate arrangement of inclusions, making it a one-of-a-kind treasure.

For the soul who marches to the beat of their own drum, salt and pepper diamonds offer a refreshing departure from tradition. But despite their unconventional appearance, salt and pepper diamonds exude an undeniable elegance and sophistication. Paired with a sleek and modern setting, these diamonds make a bold statement, elevating any engagement ring into a work of art.

Ethical and Sustainable Choices

An engagement ring is not just a symbol of love; it’s a reflection of your values. At Malka Diamonds, our conflict-free, Earth-mined diamonds are obtained through UN-approved distribution channels which adhere to the Kimberly Process (KP) Certification standards.

We embrace innovation and environmental consciousness, offering a stunning variety of lab-grown diamonds. These diamonds are environmentally friendly, with significantly lower carbon footprints compared to traditional mining methods, and they are also equivalent in terms of quality and beauty. By opting for lab-grown diamonds, you can make a conscious choice to minimize your environmental impact while still enjoying the timeless elegance of a diamond engagement ring.

Exploring Gemstones

Gemstones offer a captivating and dynamic alternative to traditional diamonds. Unlike diamonds, which are prized for their clarity and sparkle, gemstones boast a rich spectrum of colors and textures that add a unique flair to any engagement ring. Their vibrant hues create a striking contrast against the backdrop of precious metals, making them a popular choice for those seeking individuality and self-expression.

Vintage Charm

From the deep, velvety blues of sapphires to the fiery reds of rubies, these gemstones evoke the glamor and sophistication of eras past. Each stone we have at Malka Diamonds is carefully selected for its exceptional quality and character, ensuring that your ring is both a piece of jewelry and a timeless treasure to be cherished for generations.

Contemporary Sophistication

Our gemstone collection offers a blend of modern and classic sophistication. Featuring gray spinel for understated elegance, amethysts for regal charm, and zircons for dazzling brilliance, each gemstone brings its own unique appeal. Explore our diverse range and find the perfect ring to express your style and celebrate your love.
