Say “baseball diamond” to a jeweler, and the jeweler is likely to say “that’s no diamond.” Diamond experts know that a 4 sided diamond isn’t going to sparkle and shine. Cutting facets into a diamond is the secret. Each facet bounces the light and makes those little flashes of light that are so hypnotic.
But, this is one of those times where more isn’t going to get you… more. Think of it like windows and mirrors. One lets the light in… the other bounces light out. Like a prism, white light gets cut into its individual colors. When the windows and mirrors are lined up just right, it bounces light and color back to your eye. In the jewelry industry it’s called sparkle or scintillation.
