The Ideal Cut Diamond
Over 200 years ago the Tolkowsky diamonds dynasty was born. Since the 1800's through to today the Tolkowksy name has been synonymous with cutting the worlds finest diamonds. Now Tolkowsky diamonds are avaliable exclusively at Ernest Jones.
The Ideal Cut
Tolkowsky is celebrated for creating the modern Ideal Cut Round Brilliant diamond. A diamond with 57 perfectly proportioned facets and precision symmetry.
This level of cutting perfection is very important, as if a diamonds proportions are not precise there may be areas where light can escape and in places the diamond will look dull and dark instead of bright and lively.
To prevent this loss of beauty, Marcel Tolkowsky set out to define the perfect parameters that a diamond would need to be cut to in order to maximize light return in 3 specific areas; brilliance (white light), fire (colour) and scintillation (overall sparkle). He succeeded and in doing so had invented what would come to be known as the “Ideal Cut” Round Brilliant. His discovery became the benchmark light performance cut by which all other diamonds are judged.
Hearts & Arrows
The Hearts & Arrows optical effect is your visual proof of Tolkowsky’s cutting perfection. The hearts and arrows image seen through the viewer shows you that due to the precision of the cut, the maximum amount of light is being reflected back out of the diamond. Every Tolkowsky round brilliant diamond displays eight hearts and eight arrows associated with the most perfectly crafted Ideal Cut Diamonds, a mark of true quality.
