This service is provided for free. Please be so kind as to let me know which one you choose (even if your final selection isn’t listed above). Thank you so much!

I recommend a stone by combining a number of assessment factors including:

  • the stone’s proportions and angles
  • how confident I am that the recipient will absolutely love love love the diamond;
  • calculated level of light return
  • optical precision
  • good quality diamond material
  • the value I believe it represents;
  • must be deemed eye-clean by me;
  • how well it fits the brief.

Efficient light return reduces apparent color, as is evidenced in the ideal cut oval stone above. This means it has good sparkle for a fancy color diamond without completely masking the color.

There is always a tradeoff between sparkle and color vibrancy. For this reason the fancy color oval cuts at James Allen are designed to show color evenly by having extra facets below the girdle.
