A cut above the rest
When it comes to the round brilliant, not just any cut will do. A gemologist must have an obsession for perfection to create the exact dimensions required for a round stone to reflect its maximum radiance and beauty. You see, it's not the carat that lends the diamond its shine, but the detail and artistry of the cut. With Secrets, your round brilliant stone will indeed be a cut above the rest.
Cut BY ARTISTS OBSESSED WITH PERFECTION
The hallmark of a top-tier round cut is when a Hearts-and-Arrows pattern appears in the stone; from the top you can see 8 perfect arrows, while from the bottom you can see 8 perfect hearts.
Due to the extreme level of cutting precision required for symmetrical patterning, Hearts and Arrows stones are called “super ideals”. Secrets always aspires to cut to this ideal, and only round stones deemed perfect are set in our 10 and 14 carat fine gold jewellery,
Cut For precision
Round shaped stones need to be cut to exact proportions to reveal their maximum sparkle. When buying a mined round diamond this means you should opt for an "Excellent" cut stone, which is the top tier on the GIA diamond grade chart. An excellent cut diamond is often priced in the tens of thousands of dollars. Meanwhile, all Secrets stones are cut to the equivalent "Excellent" grade, while still remaining totally affordable.
Celebrate a Larger
Due to the brilliant shine of a round shape stone, the ring preference is to set them simply, and allow their radiance to take centre stage. As a Secrets stone is more affordable than a mined diamond, this means you can opt for a much larger centre stone for maximum statement. Popping the question with a larger, brighter Secrets engagement ring will ensure it's a romantic moment to remember.
