Yowza! Wowza! Bowza! H&A Crafted by Infinity diamond review! 1.442 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity

So I was checking out the newly redesigned web site for High Performance Diamonds today, and tripped over this 1.442 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity, Crafted by Infinity Hearts and Arrows round diamond! Now anything in the range of 1.40 – 1.49 carats is pretty rare, but even more so when they are cut as incredible as the super ideal cut diamonds produced by Paul Slegers of Crafted by Infinity! Of course I hopped on Skype and asked Wink about this puppy, and he exclaimed “Oh man, it really is spectacular! You should see it…” which is nothing short of a mean spirited tease, since I’m down in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and there is no way that I’m going to be able to feast my eyes on it, but you can!

Crafted by Infinity diamond reviews, AGS 104074746021, Clarity PhotographThis 1.442 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity, Crafted by Infinity Hearts and Arrows round diamond is exactly the type of diamond that I built my reputation upon as a diamond buyer! It is the virtual text book example of a super ideal cut diamond, with an overall cut grade of AGS Ideal-0 on the Light Performance grading platform of the American Gem Society Laboratory (AGSL) which uses Angular Spectrum Evaluation Technology (ASET) to measure diamonds for brightness! The combination of proportions that are within the middle of the range designated for the zero ideal cut proportions rating, and the incredible degree of optical precision that this diamond exhibits make it a fire cracker!

The degree of contrast brilliance that a diamond like this is going to exhibit is practically off the charts! This diamond is going to look fantastic in pretty much every lighting environment that you can think of, from the pin-fire type lighting created by candle light and halogen jewelry store lighting, and more importantly the diffused lighting environments that most of us live and work under!

Interpreting the ASET Scope image for this diamond:

Crafted by Infinity diamond reviews, AGS 104074746021, ASET ScopeWhile we’re on the subject of lighting environments, I can tell you that based upon this ASET image, this 1.442 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity, Crafted by Infinity Hearts and Arrows round diamond is making exceptional use of the light that is available to it from within the room! All that red indicates that the diamond is gathering the brightest light that is available to it from within the room, and reflecting it right back towards you! The blue arrows are proof that the diamond exhibits a high degree of static contrast, and the little bit of green represents the second brightest light in the room, and it is perfectly normal for there to be a bit of green in the middle of the table facet on an ASET image.

Understanding the Ideal Scope image for this diamond:

Crafted by Infinity diamond reviews, AGS 104074746021, Ideal ScopeIt is a common belief that ideal cut diamonds always deliver the highest volume of light return, but this is simply not true, so it isn’t enough that this 1.442 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity, Crafted by Infinity round diamond has an overall cut grade of AGS Ideal-0. By the numbers I can tell you that the 40.8 degree pavilion angle should provide a high volume of light return, while the 34.6 degree crown angle provides a virtual balance of brilliance (white sparkle) and dispersion (colored sparkle) and the 76% lower girdle facet length should produce broad spectrum sparkle that is larger in size, and bolder, brighter, and more vivid, than what a lot of ideal cut diamonds are going to deliver.

But I can’t tell you that for certain without access to an ideal scope image like the one provided above for this 1.442 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity, Crafted by Infinity Hearts and Arrows round diamond. The Ideal Scope is designed for the purpose of identifying light leakage within diamonds, and if you compare the ideal scope image for this Crafted by Infinity diamond, with the images of diamonds of different cut qualities provided on the Ideal Scope Reference Chart created by Garry Holloway that appears below, you will see that the volume of light return is nothing short of excellent!
