PASSION8 Diamonds are precision cut in a way that creates exactly eight perfect hearts and eight perfect arrows. This perfectly symmetrical 58 facet cut ensures light refracting through the diamond only comes out the top surface. The result is an extraordinary brilliance that allows your diamond to perform amongst the best.
Less than 1% of the worlds diamonds are of a high enough standard to become a PASSION8 Diamond. Once hand selected, the rough stones are expertly cut to exact and perfect mathematical proportions by some of the worlds most qualified diamond cutters and polishers. The cutting can take up to 5 times longer than cutting an ordinary stone and up to 10% more rough weight will be sacrificed to achieve the perfect cut.
The result however is breathtaking. Each one of the 58 facets is cut to perfect mathematical proportions, revealing 8 perfect hearts and 8 perfect arrows within the stone. This ensures light refracting through the diamond only comes out the top surface, creating an extraordinary sparkle. Such a sparkle in fact, that PASSION8 Diamonds will perform 2-3 shades of colour whiter and brighter when dirty than an ordinary diamond.
Not just any cushion cut diamond, but the brightest cushion cut available. With 8 perfect hearts and 8 perfect arrows, our cushion cut diamonds will present like no other. The sparkle and light performance is equal to its big brother the Passion8 Round Brilliant Cut. This is the rarest of the rare.
Traditionally, the cushion cut started as the old mine cut. Over the past 100 years, with the help of technology, the cushion cut has evolved to become a brighter diamond. Now Passion8 has taken it to another level, by working with some of the best diamond cutters in the world, to bring you the ultimate Cushion Cut Diamond with the brightness, fire, scintillation, life and beauty of a round cut, but in the shape of a cushion.
Cushion cut diamonds are traditionally deeper in their cut and have wider and fewer facets than a round cut. Our Passion8 Cushion Cut has been cut and polished with a unique range of facets that match the round, thus showing the 8 hearts and 8 arrows. This means that the light is reflected and directed through the diamond and out the stone, with all the light being reflected upward and out the crown of the diamond we achieve extra sparkle (even when dirty).
Traditional cushion cut diamonds do not retain their colour well and often look darker or lower in colour when they get dirty. The Passion8 Cushion Cut not only holds its colour when dirty, it also appears whiter and brighter for eternity due to the perfect and unique special Passion8 cut.
Passion8 Cushion Cuts will be 3-4 times brighter and whiter than the average cushion cut diamond.
The Passion8 Cushion Cut will be slightly larger in diameter than a traditional cushion cut, so not only do you get substantially more sparkle, but you get the extra size too.
