Ideal Proportions

An Ideal proportion refers to the specific parameters within a diamond that are meticulously cut to precise angles and exact proportions allowing it to exhibit the maximum balance of brilliance, scintillation and fire. This is achieved when a diamond’s facets direct its internal light rays towards the center of the stone and then reflected back through its crown (top) to gain the optimum reflection and refraction of light, ensuring nearly all the light that enters the diamond is returned to the viewer’s eye. When a diamond is not ideally cut, its internal light will ‘escape’ out through its pavilion (bottom) making the diamond appear lifeless and dull.
