Why cut diamonds?
Lab-grown rough diamonds are just as invisible, dull, and lifeless as mined diamonds. Until a diamond is cut, its brilliance remains undiscovered. Only the experience and craftsmanship of a cutter can unlock the true beauty of a lab-grown diamond. Therefore, cut is the most important of the 4cs'.
at Growing Diamonds. All diamonds we create are master-cut with great care.
All our round brilliant diamonds are cut to AGS 000 and feature a hearts and arrows symmetrical design that together create diamonds that are exceptional and high-shine performance.
000 or three zeros are used to refer to the three aspects of the cut that need to be "ideal" - proportion, symmetry, polish. AGS 000 / Three Zeros: ideal ratio 0, ideal polish 0, ideal symmetry 0. AGS 000 or triple zero is the highest cut grade a diamond can have. It is a rare combination of ideal proportions, polish, and symmetry.
The AGS Angle Spectral Evaluation Tool (ASET) is the only scientifically recognized tool for grading diamond cut cuts. ASET is a device that provides viewers with a color-coded map of light usage. ASET Maps is used to assess the brightness, contrast, and light leakage of diamonds.
Hearts and Arrows Symmetry
An ideally cut diamond should have eight symmetrical arrows when viewed from the top (crown). When the diamond is viewed from the base (pavilion), it should reveal eight symmetrical hearts.
Because symmetrical patterns require extreme cutting precision, Hearts and Arrows diamonds have exceptional light performance and precise optical symmetry.
