To understand why the Crown of Light’s superior sparkle is admired by diamond lovers and industry experts alike, we first need to understand how we look at diamonds.
The most common design for a diamond utilizes a flat surface on the top of the diamond, also known as the crown. The Crown of Light’s patented cut takes a different approach to diamond crown design. Rather than keeping the crown of the diamond flat on top, the Crown of Light diamond’s crown has a rounded domed shape.
Why is this?
Although the Crown of Light is reflecting the same amount of light as a conventional round brilliant, the differentiator is the way in which the light is reflected. When light hits a flat surface at a specific angle, it is reflected back out as that specific corresponding angle. When light hits a rounded surface, it is reflected back out in several angles. This is what creates the Crown of Light’s breathtaking sparkle. Light in multiple angles in multiple directions.
Below is a comparison between a Crown of Light diamond and a conventional round brilliant diamond with the same 4C’s grades as seen in the Diamond Light Performance Scope.
