The diamonds, which are certified according to the Kimberley Process, begin their journey to Wempe showrooms in the mines of Botswana and continue with a stop in Antwerp, where the criteria for diamonds are clearly defined. The diamond quality used by Wempe is called Top Wesselton. It’s the lightest color that is categorized directly after the completely colorless (white) River variant. In addition, the stones we use for the WEMPE-Cut® are almost perfectly clear. If there are any interior flaws, they can scarcely be seen even under tenfold magnification.
There’s only one thing that’s even rarer than a diamond: an innovative certified diamond cut. Few companies have the know-how and the potential to master this development challenge while maintaining the highest standards of quality. Wempe is one of these companies, and it has tackled this challenge. The result is a very special and innovative diamond cut: the WEMPE-Cut®. It is set off to perfection in the exclusive jewelry line Splendora BY KIM.
How does one create a masterpiece that has 137 facets — an incredible 80 facets more than the classic brilliant cut? It took two years just to develop the WEMPE-Cut®. The challenge was to create “more facets, more fire, more force.”
