While most would consider a traditional round brilliant cut diamond sufficiently brilliant, we were still not satisfied. We set out to maximize brilliance beyond the 70 year old standard. Realizing light still leaks from some areas of even the best cut diamonds, we strategically added facets to counter those areas and prevent light from leaking out. The final result was Century cut with 98 facets compared to the traditional 58, and extraordinary gains in light return. And it’s only available at Kirk Root Designs in Austin, Texas.
