The ideal-cut is a mathematical formula for cutting diamonds to precise angles and proportions to gain the optimum reflection and refraction of light. You may choose to compromise on color, clarity or carat-weight, but to ensure that you have the most beautiful diamond possible, you should never compromise on cut.
In a diamond that is cut too deep, much of the light is reflected to opposite facets at the wrong angle and is lost through the sides. The diamond may appear black in the center.
A LAZARE® diamond ensures optimal brilliance, scintillation and fire. Light is reflected from facet to facet and comes back through the top in a rainbow blaze.
In a diamond that is cut too shallow, light is lost through the bottom because it is too flat; the result is a dull grey ring and a loss of brilliance.
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.
