What is a Triple X Diamond?
Triple X diamond is our trade term referring to diamonds that have Excellent cut, Excellent polish and Excellent symmetry. A diamond’s cut, symmetry and polish grades indicate the quality of craftsmanship that went into transforming a diamond rough into a polished stone. All three affect a diamond’s interaction with light and are described on GIA Diamond Grading Reports as Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, to Poor . Our diamonds which are all Russian cut in our factory are 99% Triple Excellent. We source only the best quality and craftsmanship of diamonds around the globe.
Top notch craftsmanship ensures that a diamond gives off maximum light and fire while having an attractive pattern. This is what you may refer to as ‘sparkle’ and ‘brilliance. A diamond which has been cut to Triple Excellent standards has the best and most sparkle attainable by diamond cutting standards.
Cut is a diamond’s most important factor. It determines a diamond’s proportions — its depth and the angles of its facets — which in turn affect how light bounces around in a diamond. An Excellent cut grade means that a diamond has been cut within parameters that allow the diamond to give off intense brightness, sparkle and fire, while having an even pattern of light and dark areas (scintillation). Poorly cut diamonds often have large light or dark patches that make the stone appear dull or uninteresting to the eye. Cut is visible via the naked eye ,there is no technical tool required to see the cut of a diamond.
