Classy Cuts

Diamonds are forever and class is everlasting.
When forever is what matters a touch of class is all you need to set the mood for the one you love.

Though extremely difficult to quantify, the cut of any diamond has three attributes:

Brilliance (the total light reflected from a diamond)
Fire (the dispersion of light into the colors of the spectrum)
Scintillation (the flashes of light, or sparkle)

The brilliance, fire and scintillation contribute to a complex interaction of what make the diamond attractive. The type of lighting (a well lit room or out doors with natural light all around) is equally important to the viewer’s perception. The true beauty of the diamond is made possible by the cut.
A shallow crown angle can have more white light return and a crown angle tending toward the steep side many times will show more fire.
The facets above the girdle (outer edge of the diamond) act as windows and the facets below the girdle (the pavilion) act as mirrors reflecting the light back to the viewer.
It is the combination between the two that produce a balance between brilliance and fire while at the same time avoiding light to be lost.
If the light that enters into the diamond does not return, the sparkle is lessen.

Timeless jewelry has a style that can be noticed in any atmosphere among other jewels.
