A masterpiece that features the highest degree of optical symmetry. The Hearts and Arrows Cushion Cut
For centuries Cushion Cut diamonds have been favoured among many. Considered as one of the Old World diamonds, the Cushion Cut Diamond has established itself as a highly desirable shape for around 200 years. Traditionally referred to as the Old Mine Cut, the rectangular diamond with rounded corners of today has been modernised to achieve a sparkle and brilliance like no other. With advances in cutting techniques, the latest technology allows for each diamond to be cut with ultimate precision using the Hearts and Arrows technique.
The Hearts and Arrows Cushion Cut refers to precise optical symmetry and precision. These rare and exquisite diamonds display a distinct pattern of 8 arrows when viewed from above, and 8 hearts when viewed from below. This expertise of cutting brings the fire, brightness and scintillation of a Round Brilliant Cut into the shape of a Cushion Cut Diamond. Due to innovations and artistry behind Hearts and Arrows precision cutting, the fewer and wider facets than a round diamond create perfect ratios that produce unrivaled light performance.
This idyllic cut causes all the light to reflect upward through the crown of the diamond to achieve a remarkable sparkle. A hearts and arrows Cushion Cut will appear 3-4 times whiter than an average cut diamond . A Hearts and Arrows Diamond will also appear larger due to the increased light return, their larger facets form a series of mirrors generating brilliance and sparkle to make a Cushion Cut Diamond appear whiter and brighter than ever.
To understand the incredible feat, it is worth noting the level of precision necessary to produce a Hearts and Arrows Diamond. It requires remarkable skill, cutting tools, time, and a larger diamond rough to produce. Less than 1% of all the world's diamonds are cut with this optical symmetry. Cushion Cut diamond shapes can have less brilliance than other stones. Mastering the techniques of Hearts and Arrows Cut is the extraordinary vision of perfection and optical symmetry.
The latest technology in cutting has elevated the Cushion Cut to a level like never before to create the most desirable diamonds. The Hearts and Arrows Cut has elevated the stone to become one of the brightest and most brilliant of all diamonds. Years of refining has now set it apart as an Ideal Cut Diamond. An impressive achievement exacting process of lining up every facet with precise symmetry, visual evidence of craftsmanship and cutting at its finest.
