PRLog - May 20, 2014 - GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Ever since someone once figured out how to cut the hardest material in the world and make it sparkle even more, people have been finding new designs for diamond cuts. The more cuts, or facets, that a diamond has, the more it sparkles and shine. For almost one hundred years, there was a traditional cut that was featured in classic solitaire engagement rings. That cut has been replaced by a diamond with almost twice as many facets, and this new cut, The Phantom, is quickly becoming the look of choice for young brides everywhere.

“The more surfaces that light has to reflect off of, the more light it is going to produce.” One master designer for Van Scoy Diamonds explained of the importance of more facets to the appearance of a diamond. “Think of it like mirrors. One mirror reflects light just fine, but if you shine a light at a series of mirrors that are set up to reflect that light off of each other, the amount of light that comes back are multiplied by factors of ten, twenty-five or more. It’s the same concept that created lighthouses. The more ways to reflect and refract the light, the more light a single bulb can produce. That is why The Phantom cut diamond is such a popular choice. Now you can have a smaller diamond, leading to more affordable diamond engagement rings, and still have the sparkle that you have always wanted.”
This change is something that jewelers have always wanted but they needed technology to catch up with them. What lasers can do is something these craftspeople have only been able to dream about. Now the possibilities for new styles and designs, where they manage to have two or three facets where they could only fit one before, are as endless as the imaginations.
