Hearts & Arrows Cut Moissanite

What exactly is a Hearts & Arrows cut?

The Hearts & Arrows cut is our most intricate cut yet, featured on the worlds premium Charles & Colvard D-F graded, Forever One moissanite stone. A new innovation mastered by Charles & Colvard in 2017.

This phenomenon that was discovered in the 1970s in Japan by Kazumi Okuda, which lead to what is today regarded to be the ‘super ideal cut,’ 57-58 facets are made with the utmost precision, by aligning the facets precisely in three dimensions, this achieves optical symmetry by maximising the light handling potential of the facet arrangement.

The result? Eight beautiful symmetrical hearts and arrows that can be seen when closely examining the gemstone with a special viewer. From the top angle of the crown 8 symmetrical arrows are visible whilst viewing from the bottom perspective, will give you a display of 8 beautifully symmetrical hearts.
