Have you ever seen the term ‘diamond melee’, only to scratch your head in wonderment? If so, you’re not alone. Diamond melee refers to a group of small diamonds French in origin. The word melee means mixed, so melee diamonds are small and usually range from .001 to .15ct and measure .6mm to 3.5mm in diameter. These small diamonds are also referred to as diamond chips by those in the industry. They are a great option for those looking for diamonds on a budget, or if you are looking for a specific color and style.
We often purchase melee in bulk from a reputable company that has already pre-sorted and given each diamond a quality rating. When it comes to melee diamonds, cut doesn’t really matter. All of these diamonds are of high cut quality, regardless of their size. We guarantee they will refract the maximum amount of light possible, giving brilliance and overall beauty to any piece of jewelry. Melee diamonds come in handy for customers who are considering a pave, channel, or prong setting with diamond accents. The quality of the melee diamonds provided by Elite Fine Jewelry Crafting will complement your main center diamond in a remarkable way. Elite Fine Jewelry Crafting is a family-owned and operated business and we believe in treating our customers as if they were one of our own. Regardless of whether you have an existing diamond that you would like turned into a statement piece, or if you are looking for a few melee diamonds to add shine and brilliance to a ring, necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings, look no further than Elite Fine Jewelry Crafting.
