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 dazzling display of brilliance and fire, unlocking the true beauty of the stone which would be lost in a diamond with less cut precision. Union Diamond Select Ideal Cut stones are cut only from the finest quality rough diamonds. Other companies try to get the largest diamonds possible from each piece of rough with no regard for the beauty of the finished stone, but Union Diamond Select Ideal Cut stones are cut with perfect proportions and symmetry in mind. This may yield a smaller finished stone, but with superior brilliance and sparkle.
Diamond Proportions are important because they impact how light travels through your diamond. Diamonds that are cut too deeply or too shallowly lose or leak light through the side or bottom, as seen in the image below, resulting in a loss of light return and brilliance. Our Select Ideal Cut Diamonds are carefully selected for their perfect proportions which allow our diamonds to reflect the maximum amount of light and brilliance possible.
Where proportions are important for a bright and lively stone, symmetry is responsible for the beauty of each spark of light. A diamond with well aligned and symmetrical faceting is able to bounce light evenly around the stone creating a beautiful play of sparkle and fire. If the facets are not shaped or aligned properly, light can be misdirected causing the diamond to lose brilliance and create an unpleasing look.
To ensure that we are selecting diamonds with perfect proportions and symmetry, Union Diamond uses the strict guidelines set forth by the GIA which is an industry leader, and the standard of excellence in grading. Only diamonds that have been graded Excellent for Polish, Symmetry, and most importantly Cut are considered beautiful and brilliant enough to become a Union Diamond Select Ideal Diamond.
