DoW Signature Princess Collection™ Diamonds:

A diamond's cut is considered by diamond experts to be one of the most important characteristics of a diamond. The DoW Signature Princess Collection™ focuses on the diamond cut with a special emphasis on the crown height.

Ideal Cut

Based on scientific formulas, a well-cut diamond will internally reflect light from one mirror-like facet to another and disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. This results in a display of brilliance and fire, thereby placing well-cut diamonds higher on the Diamond Quality Pyramid than deep or shallow-cut diamonds. Diamonds that are cut too deep or too shallow lose or leak light through the side or bottom, resulting in less brilliance and ultimately, value. All diamonds found in our Signature Collections have the highest quality cut for their diamond shape.

A Diamond in the Rough

To maximize brilliance, both a skilled master diamond cutter and meticulously planned and perfectly proportioned cuts produce the highest cut diamonds of exceptional fire and value. As much as 40% of the uncut diamond can be lost during this process.

Perfect Proportions

Proportions effect how light travels after entering a diamond. Diamonds that are cut too shallow or too deep allow light to pass through the pavilion When a diamond is cut with perfect symmetry and perfect proportions, a diamond will gather and reflect light, for maximum brilliance.
