Certified Classification Type

The Shape of Brilliant® Diamonds are only Type II (HPHT) or Type IIa (CVD) certified.

We're actually referring to the scientific classification which determines the level or "type" of impurities of a stone. The purest diamonds contain only carbon, but pure diamonds are very rare. Trace element impurities can impact shape and color.

Type IIa diamonds have negligible impurities of any kind and are considered to be the most valuable of all. Some of the world's most famous diamonds are actually Type IIa. The Hope Diamond, the Cullinan, the Koh-I-Noor, the Darya-I-Noor, the Winston Legacy and the Star of the South are all examples of the superb Type IIa diamond classification.
