Hearts On Fire at James & Sons

When it comes to jewelry, James & Sons only carries the best of the best. As proof of this commitment to excellence, we'd like to introduce you to one of our collection's finest members: the Hearts On Fire diamond , which holds the lofty distinction of being the only diamond in the world deemed perfectly cut.

The first thing you'll notice about a Hearts On Fire diamond is that it genuinely sparkles -- a unique characteristic not found in other diamonds. A Hearts On Fire is truly special; in fact, less than .01 of 1% of the world's natural rough diamonds make the cut (no pun intended). Another aspect of the Hearts On Fire diamond that sets it apart from other diamonds is its perfect ring of eight hearts on the bottom, and its perfectly formed, symmetrical Fireburst® on the top, which outshines any other diamond. This is unequalled perfection you can see with your own eyes, courtesy of the sublime skill displayed by the diamond-cutting experts responsible for crafting such beauty.

So where exactly does the brilliance come from? Well, as light enters the diamond it descends downward into the Pavillion. Standard diamonds aren't always cut efficiently, and typically leak light from the sides and bottom. For example, if the cut is too shallow or too deep, the light is lost, and so too its brilliance. However, a Hearts On Fire diamond benefits from a perfectly symmetrical cut and increased surface area, allowing it to capture the light and reflect it from the top, generating maximum brilliance and fire - thus the name! So the next time you hear someone compliment a diamond by saying they can “see it from across the room", walk over and have a look for yourself. Chances are that person is referring to a bright Hearts On Fire diamond!
