EXPERIENCE LIGHT PERFORMANCE

Light is the energy that brings a diamond to life. Light ignites the fire inside, sets off the sparkle, reveals hidden symmetries and expresses a diamond’s brilliance. To understand a diamond’s true beauty and visual value, first understand how it interacts with light.

LET THERE BE LIGHT

Light Performance offers diamond retailers a new way to personalize the purchase experience beyond the 4Cs, and allows consumers a chance to find the best fit between their visual preferences and budget – so they can literally understand what they are buying in a truer light.

WHAT IS LIGHT PERFORMANCE GRADING?

A diamond’s light performance is a measure of its interaction with light. Light performance is the most accurate and comprehensive way to determine a diamond’s visual appeal, and also its uniqueness. Beyond the 4Cs, light performance adds a new dimension to diamond grading. It provides a rich, comprehensive and objective view of a diamond’s visual beauty.

WHAT FEATURES OF THE DIAMOND AFFECT ITS LIGHT PERFORMANCE?

In the world of gemstones, diamonds are supremely precious.
But what makes one diamond more valuable than another? As a diamond’s value is based mainly on its rarity in relation to other diamonds, Sarine has pioneered automated objective 4C’s grading to ensure a consistently precise way to determine a diamond’s real value.

CUT & LIGHT PERFORMANCE

Light performance is affected by the diamond’s natural characteristics, its birthmarks, clarity grade, color grade – and, above all, its unique cut.

CLARITY, COLOR & LIGHT PERFORMANCE

Clarity affects the amount of light returned back from the diamond, and is influenced by the size, type and location of inclusions and birthmarks. Lower color grades affect the hue of light returned. Whiter, brighter color grades enhance a diamond’s light performance.

THE KEY TO LIGHT PERFORMANCE
