How Diamond & Platinum Measure Beauty
At Diamond & Platinum, the 4Cs and light performance are used to judge the beauty of an Estrella diamond.
Less than 0.1% of the world's finest diamonds qualify to become an Estrella diamond.
Each Estrella diamond meets stringent selection criteria set by in-house experts and gemologists, going beyond the 4Cs. Each facet of an Estrella diamond is polished to perfection to optimally reflect and refract light. This dedication to perfection produces maximum brilliance, sparkle (scintillation), fire and light symmetry. Ultimately creating the creme de la creme of diamonds.
Estrella Diamond is cut to perfection – promising excellent proportions, perfect symmetry and remarkable polish. The flawless alignment of its 57 facets enables 8 perfectly symmetrical hearts and arrows to be clearly seen under the Estrella scope that produce maximum brilliance, fire and sparkle (scintillation). Hearts & Arrows is a symmetrical optical pattern that is visible in brilliant diamonds cut to the highest quality and precision.
Diamond carat weight measures how much a diamond weighs.
Diamond colour evaluation is based on the absence of colour.
Diamond clarity is the absence of inclusions and blemishes.
