To qualify as AGS 0000 Ideal cut, a diamond must be polished to incredible precision, every facet carefully angled to maximize brilliance, scintillation, fire and overall Light Performance. The AGS Light Performance Grading Report sets the highest standard in the diamond industry, AGS 0000 Ideal. The 0’ mean zero deductions. 0 for Polish, 0 for Symmetry, 0 for overall Cut, and 0 for overall Light Performance.
Every Fire and Ice diamond achieves this maximum grade, but Fire and Ice goes beyond Ideal to produce a diamond which consistently faces up bigger, brighter and whiter even compared to other Excellent and Ideal cut diamonds.
– Make sure it looks like an Oval
Every Fire and Ice Oval cut diamond (over .30ct) will receive an AGS 0000 Ideal cut grade.
Fire and Ice went beyond the Ideal cut grade standards to eliminate the customary dark “bow tie” previously seen in even the best Oval cut diamonds. Fire and Ice preserved the length to width ratio Oval connoisseurs prefer, kept the 58 facet model and cut the diamond with a large diameter without sacrificing brilliance and light performance.
The Fire and Ice Oval cut diamond represents the maximum potential Light Performance an Oval diamond can provide. (See Bar Graph Below)
