In the process of diamond cutting, there are five repeatable facet sequences. They are listed in the order in which they are produced, including:
During the orchestration of these five sequences, Hearts On Fire employs the use of cutting techniques that include the use of vibration-free micro balanced wheels, digital imaging with on screen templates at 100x magnification and the use of other proprietary methods to achieve a level of perfection that goes far beyond the industry standard of 10x magnification. Each individual facet within these five categories is inspected and measured according to very specific criteria for proportion (angle), symmetry (size) and polish and the competencies are recorded and documented.
The sole motive of these measures is to achieve the greatest possible efficiency in the transmission of light resulting in unbridled brilliance (brightness), dispersion (colorfulness) and scintillation (sparkle).
