The Leo Diamond
A diamond's sparkle is a result of its ability to catch light on its individual facets, which are polished cuts in a diamond. Leo diamonds are of a more superior brilliance than most other diamonds because of a patented facet cutting process.
Four generations of the Leo Schachter Diamond Co. have provided diamonds for half a century since approximately 1959. The Leo diamond came about in the last few years of that time in 1981 when the patented cutting process began.
There is one type of diamond, named after Leo Schachter in the company’s entire history because of its superiority over the other Leo Schachter diamonds and those from other diamond companies. It is designed only by Leo Schachter artisans. The Leo Diamond is also the only diamond that is measured and certified because of its advanced light and brilliance resulting from the patented cutting process.
The Leo diamond features more facets than any other diamond. It catches more light than any diamond and is created by master diamond cutters trained specifically to work with Leo diamonds exclusively.
The sizes of diamonds are measured in carats. The facet sizes in Leo diamonds are precision cut to be symmetrical so that the return of light explodes across the top of the diamond after reflecting off each facet.
Leo diamonds come in several shapes, including round, heart and square, among others. Shape sometimes affects the appearance of the diamond size, making the diamond look smaller or larger than it is.
People often mistake the cut of a Leo diamond to mean the shape of the diamond or the size. The cut actually refers to how many facets have been cut into each particular diamond.
