Product Description

 

"The Oval H&A is absolutely stunning. It has just the right amount of sparkle, with no bow tie effect! ."

-- Customer Testimonial

 

Above - Seeing is believing!  Above is a 60 second video of the Oval H&A in the sunlight.  Brighter, crisper, and more blinding in real life but you can see that the H&A cut design, which eliminates the usual bow-tie dead zones in ovals, produces exceptional fire and brilliance.

 

Introducing our new Amora Oval H&A - This is the first "near H&A" oval to ever be developed, and we have a patent application in progress for it!

(Note - we will only be lightly restocking the Oval as most of our production focus will be for the Eternity H&A.  You may thus consider ordering a custom cut Oval, as we will process custom cuts deposit first in terms of production decisions and can thus ensure an Oval H&A for you:

Computer photo-realistic video of our Amora H&A Oval in spotlighting:


Background - Ovals and the "bow tie" problem:

All previous regular oval cuts suffer from the "bow tie" problem.  This is two black triangles in the center of the oval that are areas where light is not being reflected, due to the distortions imposed on the facets due to the elliptical shape.  Whereas a round has equal and symmetrical faceting all the way around, stretching a round into an oval inherently forces some of the facets to be distorted and thus unable to reflect light vs. those that remain their correct length.  This is the resultant "bow-tie" effect that plagues all regular oval cuts.

Our new, patent application in progress, Amora Oval leverages a technique known as 'split facet' cutting.  

This was originally developed by the famed South African diamond cutter Basil Watermeyer in the 1970's.  Basil was passionate about non-round cuts, and wanted to figure out how to improve their optical performance to bring to life fancy shapes that were closer in brilliance to rounds.  (Rounds, because they are 100% symmetrical, are always the most brilliant cut).  

He was able to finally do this with the development of his split-faceting technique.  However, split-faceting is hard to do as it requires very high precision, and further is wasteful of the rough.  Thus, it was never widely done for diamonds.  

However, since our business purpose is to  produce the World's Most Stunning Gems,  we set out to develop a new Amora Gem oval that would further develop the split-faceting technique for the ultimate Oval.  

Our cut designer, after 12 iterations was able to develop a new oval cut that began to present somewhat of an H&A pattern!  That was very exciting, and this design was then further refined with significant computer modeling using our newest modeling program until we came to a new design that presented a near H&A pattern and outstanding overall brilliance and fire.

The "Pure Hearts" name was developed for this new cut because it had a hearts pattern from the first model.  The arrows came later as part of the extensive computer modeling.

Most importantly the new Pure Hearts Oval completely eliminates any type of bow-tie!  The result is exceptional brilliance and fire, and the overall look and feel of an H&A round - never before seen in an oval cut!
