There are three components that make a diamond brilliant. The first is Brightness, or white light return. The second is Dispersion or Fire, which is colored light return. The third is Scintillation, the sparkling effect created when a diamond moves. Diamonds can be cut in different ways to emphasize any of these characteristics. At Kwiat, we cut ours to slightly favor brightness over dispersion as well as diameter over depth. By doing this, we create a diamond that looks larger and more brilliant. We call this the Kwiat Tiara® cut.
All Kwiat Tiara® diamonds receive an Excellent cut grade (the highest grade) from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). But not all GIA Excellent cuts meet our Tiara® standards. All Kwiat Tiara® diamonds weighing more than one carat are laser-inscribed with the Tiara logo, ensuring the promise of quality and exceptional brilliance.
