Whenever I am testing light reactions and behavior in my diamond designs, its much more than just evaluating standard light performance characteristics like brilliance, fire and scintillation. I just believe diamonds have much, much more to offer optically.
I also explore and research constantly about diamond “visual patterning” and their optical configurations!! Designing optical patterns which are humanly noticeable is not less important in my opinion.
I believe we are well aware of this after witnessing what Hearts & Arrows did to public awareness, but believe it or not, this was well over thirty years ago…, and since then??
When we manage to really understand light behavior in diamonds, designing diamond patterns becomes just like painting with lights.
In the picture collage: one of our signature modern cushion diamond cuts being tested through pretty harsh lighting conditions for its 4 rayed star pattern and its visible existence through different lighting scenarios (circa 2011).
