    "Heavenly jewels which Pericles hath lost, begin to part their fringes of bright gold. The diamonds of a most praised water doth appear, to make the world twice rich." -William Shakespeare, Pericles, Prince of Tyre.

    Only round brilliant diamonds with a Gemological Institute of America (GIA) 'excellent' grade for polish, symmetry and cut, known in the industry as 'Triple Ex', can dazzle the eye with exceptional brilliance and fire.

    As a rule, gemstones are cut to maximize their polished weight. To create an ideal cut 'Triple Ex' diamond requires not only an additional loss of carat weight– up to 10% - but also the skill and expertise of a master diamond cutter. Only a small number of diamonds have the potential to be ideal, cut to maximize relection and refraction.

    Each of the fifty-one round brilliant-cut diamonds in this spectacular rivière have 'excellent' grades for polish, symmetry and cut. The pursuit of excellence is personified here.
