The DoW Signature Ideal Round Diamond Collection™ has superior brilliance, visible to the naked eye, because of it's excellent craftsmanship, balanced symmetry and perfect proportions.
Cut: Refers to the angles and proportions of a diamond.
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.
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.
A diamond's symmetry refers to the alignment of the diamond's facets, which have large impact on a diamond's brilliance. Each facet is like a mirror or small reflective surface. When the facets are symmetrically aligned, all of the light that enters the diamond is reflected back to your eyes.
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.
