What makes a Big Bang Diamond different from other diamonds?
Traditionally, a round cut diamond contains 58 facets, but a Big Bang Diamond has 90 facets! This means it has over 50% more than other diamonds. These additional facets allow for more reflection of light within the diamond, which makes the diamond more brilliant and vibrant than a similar diamond containing fewer facets.
Are Big Bang Diamonds ‘Natural’?
Yes. Big Bang Diamonds are 100% natural diamonds. In fact, all the Big Bang Diamonds that you see in our showroom are more than 4.3 billion years old! To put that in perspective—dinosaurs existed only about 3 million years ago. Although the diamonds may be ancient, the technology used to create such a unique cut is quite new.
Is there a visual difference between a Big Bang Diamond and other diamonds?
Yes. If you compare a Big Bang Diamond with a traditional round cut diamond containing fewer facets, you will most certainly be able to tell a difference in their visual appearance. A Big Bang Diamond will have more fire & sparkle because of the increased number of facets. The difference in the diamonds is easily detected with the naked eye alone.
Is there a price difference between a Big Bang Diamond and a traditional diamond?
If you compare a Big Bang Diamond and a traditional diamond with similar color and grade, the Big Bang Diamond will almost always come in at a lower price. In a sense, you will get more ‘bang’ for your buck.
