Super ideal cut diamonds have proportions within a specific range that produce the highest volume of light return. In addition, they are polished to exhibit a higher degree of optical precision which produces broad-spectrum sparkle. Light performance is measured using ASET Scope, H&A Scope, and Ideal Scope images.
The ASET Scope images above show three "ideal cut diamonds" with varying degrees of Light Performance. The standard GIA Excellent cut diamond on the left is showing signs of light leakage under the table facet. While the entry level Hearts and Arrows diamond on the right shows traces of secondary brightness under the table facet.
The Black by Brian Gavin Hearts and Arrows diamond in the middle exhibits the most even distribution of light. To begin with, notice how the light is reflecting more evenly under the table facet. At the same time, the degree of hue and saturation is consistent throughout the entire facet structure.
This means that the diamond is reflecting light evenly because of the higher degree of optical precision. Which means that you will see sparkle which is even more vivid and intense along with higher light return. The Black by Brian Gavin Diamond in my son's engagement ring (on the left) exhibits the edge-to-edge sparkle factor that I imagine you are looking for..
