Hearts on Fire: The World's Most Perfectly Cut Diamond

A Hearts on Fire diamond ring, engagement ring or wedding ring will create sparkle even in the dimmest lighting thanks to it's perfect cut.

There are so many factors to consider when buying a diamond ring, and when it comes to something as important as an engagement ring or wedding ring, our expertise at Matthews Jewellers can light the way.

Perfect Cut

Humans can only influence one aspect of a diamond’s brilliance and brightness: the cut. Hearts on Fire understands this concept so intimately they have made it their point of difference in the market and for good reason. Determining the perfect diamond cut allows the physical beauty of the diamond to shine through. 

Cut Grade

A diamond’s cut grade is all about how well a diamond’s facets interact with light (see image below for the anatomy of a diamond). It is not the ‘shape’ of the diamond as we think of it in terms of type of engagement ring styles like round, marquise, pear or cushion. 

Anatomy of a Diamond

The GIA, the largest, most respected nonprofit source of gemological knowledge in the world, uses a standard round brilliant diamond shape (it is the most popular diamond shape) to analyse cut grade. They calculate the proportion of those facets that influence the diamond’s face-up appearance (the pavilion depth, girdle thickness, crown height, etc). These proportions allow GIA to evaluate how successfully a diamond interacts with light to create desirable visual effects like brightness, fire and scintillation.

That’s why cut is the most important of the 4Cs. Nothing in the world can fix a poorly cut diamond. The poorly cut diamond will always look dull and glassy. A Hearts on Fire diamond is cut for optimal light return - the number of facets, the angle of the facets, the symmetry and alignment all influence this light return. 

It is far better to have a well-cut diamond that is a smaller carat weight than a poorly cut diamond that has a larger carat weight.
