The Erwin IDEAL-Cut
Symmetry and Facet Angles
Each Erwin Diamond is Individually Hand Selected for Ultimate Brilliance
Less than two (2%) of all diamonds are cut to Ideal-Cut proportions. A master cutter is the only human factor that ensures whether a diamond is cut to Ideal proportions.
We regard the cut (symmetry and facet angles) of each diamond as its most important and valuable characteristic.
The Ideal-Cut diamond describes a round brilliant diamond that has been cut to exact proportions. Fifty-eight (58) exactly placed facets produce the ultimate in beauty and brilliance.
One carat is divided into 100 "points".
1 carat = 1.00 ct.; 1/2 ct. = 0.50 ct.; etc.
WEIGHT does not equal VALUE or BEAUTY.
A Diamond that is cut too Shallow or too Deep may weigh the same as an IDEAL-CUT DIAMOND but will forever lack the brilliance and scintillation of an ERWIN IDEAL-CUT DIAMOND.
