Hearts and Arrows cut

The term Hearts and Arrows is used to describe the visual effect achieved in a round Super Ideal Cut diamond with perfect symmetry and angles that exhibit a crisp and complete pattern of Hearts & Arrows. When viewed under special magnifying viewer, a complete and precise visual pattern of 8 hearts is seen while looking down through the pavilion and 8 arrows when viewing the stone in the table up position which can be seen.

The true Hearts and Arrows' pattern is extremely rare and difficult to find. Hearts & Arrows diamonds have three distinguishing factors – perfection in polish, symmetry, and proportion. Only one per million diamonds can be called True Hearts and Arrows diamond.

All of the hearts and arrows diamond bezel, star, upper girdle, lower girdle, and pavilion main facets must be aligned precisely 180 degrees opposite of each other or the "H&A" pattern will be incomplete, misalign, faded or distorted in its appearance. All the facets must be exactly the same shape and size. If the cut of the diamond is even slightly asymmetric, it results in uneven or incomplete display of the pattern. This Hearts & Arrows pattern generates light return of an average 99% in comparison with an average Hearts & Arrows that has a light return of an average 80%.

To gain this optimum reflection and refraction of light, the cutter must be willing to sacrifice expensive rough diamond material, losing significant percentage of costly rough stone to yield a superior beauty. Whereas it takes an hour to polish a standard cut, the "Super Ideal Cut" can take up to four days. As a result of the extremely complex cut and occurrence of a rare phenomenon, the diamonds exhibit a complete "Hearts & Arrows" pattern that cost more to produce than a regular round or even a standard ideal cut diamond.

The standard of the perfect degrees for maximum brilliance, blended with perfect degrees of the Hearts & Arrows, results in the best diamond in the world today. The beauty that is the result of our factory's state-of the-art technical skills who labor to bring out the best from rough diamonds.
