Understanding the Brilliance of Diamonds

The allure of a diamond’s cut lies in its brilliance, one of the trio of factors that shape the gem's overall appearance. Brilliance is the reflection of white light perceived by an observer's eye emanating from the diamond. Its companions, fire, and scintillation, equally contribute to the diamond's charm.

The Impact of Light on the Diamond’s Appearance

Depending upon the type and source of light, a diamond's radiance can have varying shades. Even with the most meticulously cut diamond, possessing a triple excellent grade, the effect of light remains significant.

Picture an old cut diamond, which under today's stark white office light may seem relatively dull. Yet, under a candle or gaslight in the 19th Century, the same gem would have exuded a soft, romantic glow. Alongside these external factors, the cut's precision also crucially affects how much light the diamond reflects; a poorly proportioned cut can result in light leakage making the diamond appear dull, even under the brightest light.

Choosing the Perfect Diamond for Your Solitaire Ring

Considering all these elements, every Valquère diamond is handpicked to ensure its brilliance aligns with your personal choice and your anticipated viewing environment.

Remember, a diamond's allure is subjective. A triple 'EX' diamond may not captivate you in the same way another with slightly different proportions does. Perhaps less fire, but more brilliance resonates with your individual style. After all, personal taste makes the lasting statement.
