Confused About What Type of Ideal Cut Diamond To Buy?

Ideal Cut Diamond Comparison

The ASET Scope images for these three "ideal cut diamonds" indicate a clear difference in the degree of Light Performance. The standard Ideal GIA Excellent Cut diamond on the left is showing signs of light leakage under the table facet. While the standard Hearts and Arrows diamond on the right is showing traces of secondary brightness under the table facet.

The Black by Brian Gavin Hearts and Arrows diamond in the middle shows the most even distribution of light reflecting throughout the diamond. This means that the diamond is cut to exhibit a higher degree of optical precision. Which means that it will exhibit a higher degree of light return and sparkle which is more vivid and intense. It will also produce the edge-to-edge sparkle factor that you're looking for. Which is why we chose a Black by Brian Gavin diamond for my son's engagement ring.
