The regular diamond shines in its dazzling 57 to 58 facets. But Roberto Coin never cared for regular gems. When he decided to create diamond jewelry, the leading Italian manufacturer determined to make the already stunning precious stone stand out even more. After two years of cutting and recutting, and several million dollar’s worth of rough stones, Roberto Coin perfected another masterpiece - the Cento diamond. Cento comes from "hundred" which indicates just how far above it is over other round cuts in the market. Cento has a hundred shining facets which come from the nontraditional nine cut sections instead of just eight. The effect is an unusual brilliance that displays more scintillation and creates more fire. One glance at these ingenious diamonds is nearly all it takes for Cento to score a hundred in the sophistication and quality score. But of course, Cento deserves more justice than that. So, along with each stone come a certification report and a laser-embedded Cento number.
