When it comes to diamonds, you want yours to light up the room. From the 4 C's, a diamond's cut has the greatest influence on its fire, sparkle and brilliance. The better the cut the more intense sparkle and light return you achieve. Precise artistry and workmanship ensure that every Diamanti stone is properly proportioned and cut to achieve the ideal balance of brilliance, dispersion and scintillation.
In a well-proportioned and symmetrical diamond, usually known as an Ideal or Excellent cut Diamond, light will enter and exit through the crown to the eye. A poorly cut diamond, however, allows too much light to escape through the sides and bottom. As a result, a diamond with a poor cut will appear dull, even if it has good color and clarity. Diamanti stones are cut to Ideal proportions allowing light to be captured and reflected to the top of the stone, creating maximum brilliance and fire similar to the best cut diamonds.
Diamonds have natural internal birthmarks called inclusions. Though nearly all diamonds have inclusions, the most prized diamonds are flawless. The fewer the inclusions, the rarer the diamond will be graded, and the more light it will reflect, resulting in a beautiful sparkle. Diamanti stones are rated at VVS1 to IF (internally flawless)
The less color in a diamond, the more valuable it is. The absolute finest colorless stone carries a D rating.
Colorless diamonds are sought after for their breathtaking purity and radiance. Diamanti stones have an equivalent D/E color. All our stones are exclusively restricted to the top colorless grades.
A carat is a unit of measure for diamond weight and is evaluated on a point system. One carat is equivalent to 100 points; a half-carat diamond is fifty points and so on. Although diamonds come in many weights, one carat diamonds are found in nature less often than smaller diamonds and are therefore much more expensive. For this reason, a one carat diamond costs far more than two half-carat diamonds of the same cut, color and clarity.
Two diamonds of the same carat weight may appear to be different sizes depending on how the diamond is cut. An Excellent/Ideal cut diamond will appear larger than many diamonds of a heavier carat weight. Diamanti stones are always cut perfectly and appear larger than a standard cut diamond. Because a Diamanti is created, you have the luxury of buying a much larger sized diamond for a fraction of the price.
