With a design philosophy that revolves around creating timeless pieces that symbolize and celebrate special milestones in people’s lives, Yair Shimansky believes: “These exclusive diamonds are for the special woman in your life who is a real 10 out 10 and, like the rough crystal from which it is cut, is scarce and in limited supply. It may cost slightly more than a traditional cut; however, it is a small price to pay for a lifetime of brilliance.”
A widely held opinion by experts and aficionados alike is that a diamond’s cut is the most important of the ‘4Cs’. Regardless of carat, colour or clarity, a poorly cut diamond will unavoidably be lacklustre. Shimansky's expert diamond cutters have utilised advanced technical skill to cut and polish the Brilliant 10, the My Girl and the Eight Hearts diamonds. Only a limited amount of rough diamonds are suitable to polish into these pieces – adding to the rarity, exclusivity and value of these stones. Every single facet of the diamond is precisely crafted and aligned and, in addition, these diamonds go through no less than 25 check points before leaving the Shimansky factory.
THE MOST BRILLIANT CUT DIAMOND IN THE WORLD
- A SIGNATURE SHIMANSKY CUT
Born from a dream to create the world’s most brilliant diamond cut, the Brilliant 10 diamond features 71 facets precisely aligned – in perfect proportion and symmetry - for the ultimate display of fire, brilliance and scintillation. This is a world first in the diamond industry.
Cascading light with fierce intensity, each facet is shaped by means of a precise and calculated technique to reveal a perfect ten heart pattern when viewed from below and a perfect ten arrow pattern when viewed from above through the Ideal Scope. This is your ultimate reassurance that the Brilliant 10 diamond has been cut for perfect symmetry and proportion; visible evidence that it is in a class of its own.
The person in pursuit of owning the perfect diamond need look no further than the Brilliant 10 diamond. While a normal round brilliant cut diamond can have up to 25% leakage, there is little to no light leakage from the Brilliant 10. Taking up to three times longer to cut, and polished only by a handful of skilled master diamond polishers, the essence of this patented cut is its ability to reflect light that enters the diamond back through the table and the crown alike. The result is a diamond that reflects light with intensity like no other. And a perfect stone to choose for an engagement ring
It also means the brilliant 10 diamond displays up to 25% more brilliance than a normal diamond and is up to two shades whiter in color than its actual color. The Brilliant 10 diamond has been tested by the international diamond laboratory in Europe and, more recently, by a Brilliant Analysis machine at an international jewelry trade show where it achieved the highest score ever recorded. Each Brilliant 10 diamond larger than .40ct is certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the European Gemological Laboratory (EGL), and laser inscribed with a unique ID and the Brilliant 10 trademark.
REFLECTING LIGHT WITH EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE
- A SIGNATURE SHIMANSKY CUT
Three years - that’s how long it took Yair Shimansky to develop the My Girl diamond, the world’s first square-cut diamond with a diamond-shaped table. Its essence is its ability to reflect light with every move you make. Only a select number of rough diamonds are suitable to become a My Girl diamond, and up to half the rough stone is sacrificed to create this mesmerizing cut.
To achieve true beauty, a diamond must return the maximum amount of light in order to create the most intense sparkle. The My Girl cut requires a highly specialized and experienced eye, careful analysis and scientific precision from a master diamond cutter. The My Girl diamond’s unique difference is that – unlike a normal Square cut diamond with four sharp corners – the My Girl has four sides with cut corners.
Making it ideal for jewelry setting, the cut corners prevent chipping and don’t pull a darker color through the stone from the corners, allowing the body color of the My Girl to be evenly distributed through the stone. Expertly polished to deliver the perfect balance of fire, brilliance and scintillation, the Shimansky My Girl diamond captures the heart of the wearer forever.
A TRUE HEARTS AND ARROWS DIAMOND
Taking three times longer to polish, and shaped by only one in a thousand diamond polishers, the Shimansky Eight Hearts diamond cut displays a perfect eight heart pattern when viewed from the bottom and a perfect eight arrow star when viewed from the top. The attention to detail and superior craftsmanship that this diamond cut demands, results in perfect proportion and symmetry which is what reflects fire, brilliance and scintillation at their best.
The gem takes three times longer to polish than other diamonds, and can only be shaped by one in a thousand cutters and is handmade with the utmost precision. This is exclusive luxury at its truest. This is a great stone to choose for a special occasion gift.
