The light performance of the JP SIC round is cut to have a balance between brilliance and fire. It is designed to have edge to edge brilliance, not only through its maximum light performance but even keeping it to the strict criteria of a classic girdle. The perfect amount of contrast in a Super Ideal Cut round in combination with its maximum light return brings out its brightness and brilliance like no other diamond.
The JP SIC round exhibits 8 perfect Hearts and 8 distinct arrows. The optical beauty and patterning of the 57 faceted round can be explained by science. Each major and minor facet of a diamond tells a story, and how well aligned it is to each other. The contrast patterning within the round must not only be perfectly symmetrical, but also evenly and well-distributed to maximize its brilliance.
The Super Ideal Round exhibits the greatest balance of large and small flashes of fire. Bolder flashes attract viewer from a further distance through its refractive major facets and smaller flashes captivates viewer from a closer distance by optimizing its minor facets when moving the diamond.
The sparkle and scintillation of the SIC Round creates a melodic on and off effect that mimics reality when a diamond is moving on a hand or when the light source is shifting. Fire and sparkle is clearly seen throughout the entire diamond with no lacklustre or dead zone in any facet.
At the 80-90 degrees light source, the SIC round exhibits large bold flashes of fire through its arrows while still retaining smaller flashes along the edges of the diamond. As the light source is lowered, fire and scintillation is well-distributed evenly throughout every facet, while still retaining large flashes both under the table and crown.
