Hearts & Arrows Diamonds
Le Lumiere's flagship brand of Hearts & Arrows diamonds is one of the pioneers in the diamond industry and marketing brand concept. The brand emphasizes strongly on the importance of the cut and other essential factors that defines the beauty of a diamond.
Hearts & Arrows diamonds are characterised by a perfect cut in which correct proportions, precise symmetry, and fine polish are combined to produce an optimum display of scintillation, brilliance and dispersion allowing internal light to gain strength and energy to reflect eight hearts and eight arrows.
The Perfect Equation
In order to create the perfect Hearts & Arrows diamond, a number of specifications must be met.
Each facet of a Hearts & Arrows diamond must be perfectly cut and aligned so that a perfectly symmetrical pattern of eight "arrows" emanating from the center is visible from the top of the stone; while eight evenly sized and spaced "hearts" are visible through the pavilion.
Each Le Lumiere - Diamonds of Light™ are available in sizes from 0.10 carat to 5 carats. Each diamond is authenticated by laser inscription and accompanied by a certificate attesting to its cut, color, clarity and carat weight.

Light is the most important element that brings out the brilliance of a diamond. Without light diamonds brilliance will not come to life.
With the combination of Hearts and Arrows, Ideal proportion, eye Clean Characteristics, Le Lumiere Grading and 3EX GIA Grading (For 0.30ct up) light has reached perfection through Lumiere Hearts and Arrows Diamonds.
Diamonds are like People
Diamonds are like people created equal yet different; Diamonds are like people balanced between Yin and Yang; Diamonds are like people, each carry an inner light, each need to be refined to perfection.
Just like people, diamonds take a journey from infancy (rough diamond) to maturity (Polished diamond). Just like people each diamond is distinctly unique, no two are identical.
Each Le Lumiere piece is beautifully designed and crafted to symbolise the true definition of perfection.
Its Diamond Cutting has reached perfection with the recent introduction of Hearts & Arrows, 3EX Grading and Ideal Proportion. Combining these three important elements creates perfection in beauty and brilliance.
FireTrace® is one of the most advanced technology that measures the dimensions, proportions and most importantly the brightness, fire and scintillation of a diamond. The higher the brightness, fire and scintillation the more brilliant a diamond is.
The picture below shows that the brilliance rate of the Hearts & Arrows diamond with ideal proportion is higher than the generic diamond on the left. One can see a clear image of the hearts and arrows.
Brilliance: is an essential attribute of a beautiful diamond and has two components; brightness and contrast. Bright diamonds return lots of light from the surroundings back to the "face up" facet.
Fire: Dispersed light appears as flashes of rainbow colors. You see more fire in darker environments like restaurants that have just a few point light sources or a flickering candle.
Scintillation: is the intense sparkles in a diamond as it moves. Black and white sparkles of scintillation show well in floodlit or office lighting environments.
