is brilliant cut synonimous to hearts and arrows?


Recommended Posts

They are different.


Brilliant is a style of cutting the upper and lower girdle facets. With brilliant cut stones, all of the facets on the back side will come together at a point in the center called the culet.


H&A is a pattern seen in the reflection pattern of the stone when it's examined through a special viewer.


All H&A stones are brilliant cut but not all brilliant cut stones are H&A.
