About These Diamonds

All of the above diamonds have proportions and angles which are required for AGS’ ideal cut grade. The American Gem Society (AGS) has developed a diamond grading system which is based on light performance. This is by far the most effective way of determining the cut quality of a diamond as the system takes into account the very advanced research conducted by both AGS and its sister organization GIA. See The Fascinating Science of Diamond Fire.

A CUT ABOVE® is the the internationally recognized Super Ideal diamond found exclusively at Whiteflash.  Crafted with ultimate precision, these extraordinary gems are arguably the pinnacle of diamond cut quality, taking light performance to its ultimate expression. From every angle in any lighting situation, an A CUT ABOVE® diamond will outshine all others, expressing the full beauty of the gem within. It will sparkle and flash no matter what environment you are in. Carry with you your own magical light show when you have your own A CUT ABOVE® diamond. Gathering available light these diamonds will always return more than they receive, representing not only the pinnacle of diamond craftsmanship but generosity and magnanimity.

The Selection Process

I assess diamonds for a number of factors. The diamond must have:

  • an AGS grading report stating the cut is of the highest standard or have the required angles according to the AGS cut guidelines to potentially qualify for AGS’ ideal cut grade;
  • good contrast
  • optical precision
  • good value;
  • a high likelihood of being eye-clean;

I only include a diamond I am confident the recipient will absolutely love.
