Heart and arrows cut diamonds are precision cut variations of the traditional 57 faceted round brilliant cut. They are cut to “ideal proportions” with superior optical symmetry, polish and a specific faceting pattern. When all these factors are in harmony the result is a repeatable, near perfect pattern of eight symmetrical arrows in the face up position called ‘crown’ and eight symmetrical hearts when viewed in the table down position, called ‘pavilion’. The diagram below depicts a symmetrical hearts & arrows cut.
