The Solasfera Diamond is a 91 faceted round brilliant cut whose cutters sought to take the precision of a 57 faceted Hearts & Arrows round and simply TURN UP THE VOLUME. This diamond was primarily designed and engineered around 3 optical technologies. Those being the FireScope and have thus eliminated all blatant light leakage, the ASET to ensure the diamond is efficiently grabbing light from the brightest resources in the environment and lastly the GemEx BrillianceScope ensuring the diamond exhibits superior fire and sparkle. The Solafera maintains the traditional patterning of the traditional round brilliant but takes it to a whole new level.

The pavilion facets primarily function as mirrors, kicking back the light that enters through the crown and to say this diamond is nothing short of a fireworks display would not be an understatement.

A certain limited number of these exist however we can custom cut any diamond into an Eighternity upon demand.
