Da Vinci Diamonds
The Da Vinci Diamond is a new cut of diamond created by Shlomo Cohen, the diamond specialist who created the Princess Cut diamond in 1982.
Diamond cuts are patented and worth a considerable amount of money. It can take years to develop a new diamond cut. First one has to find the right sport of diamond. How a diamond is cut depends heavily upon its shape and clarity color and other factors.
The Da Vinci Cut diamond features a 62 facet pentacle cut incorporating what has been populized as the Divine Proportion This is a concept based on the relationship of three lines, of which the longest is 1.618 times the length of second longest, which in turn is 1.618 times the length of the shortest line.
"I have been studying the geometric possibilities offered by the Golden Ratio since 2001, which is before I ever heard of Dan Brown or The Da Vinci Code," Cohen explained.
He went on, "Interestingly, like Dan Brown, I was inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's study of the human body, the Vitruvian Man, and discovered that the artist had adopted the Golden Ratio to emphasize the understanding that symmetry denotes beauty,"
Cohen reasoned that a diamond would be aesthetically more pleasing if it conformed to the Golden Ratio and in this he was correct as the Da Vinci Cut diamond has a fire and brilliance surpassing that of the conventional round diamond with only 57 facets.
The Da Vinci Cut diamond has already been patented in Japan, Israel, Belgium, and the United States among other countries.
