Every round, brilliant diamond used at Backes & Strauss is an Ideal Cut Diamond, designed to emanate optimum fire and brilliance. The perfect symmetry and proportions of an Ideal Cut diamond ensure that the light entering the stone refracts internally from 57 precisely placed facets and travels out through the top of the table, creating a mesmerising sparkle.
We work with only the highest specification diamonds. All Ideal Cut diamonds used at Backes & Strauss are of D, E or F colour and internally flawless with only a very, very slight inclusion.
