Every LAZARE® diamond is cut for maximum beauty, not weight. Because more of the original rough diamond must be sacrificed to achieve an ideal-cut, only a small percentage of diamonds are cut this way.
When you buy a non ideal-cut diamond, it will have been cut to retain unnecessary weight from the original piece of rough diamond. The extra depth or thickness of a non ideal-cut diamond may increase the carat-weight of the diamond, but the play of light and sparkle are greatly reduced.
All diamonds have some brilliance, but a LAZARE® diamond will offer the maximum balance of brilliance, scintillation and fire.
Mother Nature dictates a diamond’s color, clarity, and carat-weight. Of the 4C’s, cut is the only quality under man’s control and determines the beauty of every diamond.
Every LAZARE® diamond is cut for maximum beauty, not weight.
The ideal cut is a mathematical formula for cutting diamonds to precise angles and proportions which guarantees you a spectacular balance of brilliance, scintillation and fire.
See for yourself by asking your jeweler to show you the difference between an ideal cut LAZARE® diamond and other diamonds. When you see it, you just know.
