Diamonds are forever. Isn’t that what we all say? To some, diamonds could be known as the king of precious gem stones. This is why it’s important to know the many trusted brands, providing beautiful diamonds for so many. One of the many diamond brands featured at J.H. Young Jewellery is Fire & Ice Diamonds. So what makes them different?
Fire & Ice Diamonds are the result of years of research conducted by the Gemological Institute of America and the American Gem Society. Their experts are dedicated to creating diamonds that shine so bright you could see them from outer space.
Building on the new understanding of the science of light return, Fire & Ice Diamonds are cut to precise angles and proportions to maximize the radiant light and sparkle emerging from the top of the gem. Here are five reasons that make Fire & Ice Diamonds beautiful:
1. Precision Rules
Sometimes diamonds are spread too shallow or cut too deep to retain weight from the original rough. A Fire & Ice Diamond is cut to precise angles and proportions to maximize the radiant light and sparkle that emerge from the top.
Every Fire & Ice Diamond consistently delivers a bigger, brighter and whiter appearance. That’s because Fire & Ice has a narrower set of acceptable proportions than GIA Excellent and AGS Ideal cut diamonds. When you compare any two Fire & Ice Diamonds, you’ll notice how remarkably similar they are in proportion, polish and symmetry.
The precise angles of the Fire & Ice Diamond facets give it the largest diameter possible while efficiently reflecting light through the top. This allows the diamond to avoid light leakage and the “fisheye” effect. The Fire & Ice Diamond appears even larger than most other GIA Excellent and AGS Ideal cut diamonds.
When a diamond is cut to Fire & Ice proportions, the light entering from any direction is completely reflected through the top as white light (Brilliance) dispersed rainbow colours (Fire) and sparkling flashes (Scintillation). Inside the diamond, the facets act as mirrors — and it is the careful arrangement of these facets to achieve maximum Brilliance balanced by Fire and accented by Scintillation that is the secret to the luminous Fire & Ice Diamond.
The immense Brilliance of the Fire & Ice Diamond is the result of white light reflected through the top of the diamond. This is what allows a Fire & Ice Diamond to appear one or two colour grades better than its actual GIA colour classification.
