The Octagon diamond is one of the most brilliant diamond ever to be cut. Not only does it have its unique octagon shape with 8 sides, it has 88 facets and 8 Hearts & Arrows. It has more facets that the traditional 57 facets that round diamonds have, which gives it an extreme amount of scintillation. What makes this diamond even more breathtaking is it manages to retain the 8 Hearts & Arrows, resulting in larger and intense fire.
In this video, you'll see how the Octagon diamond performs in real life! Also, I'll be showing you the diamond outdoors under natural sunlight and under the shade. This is where you'll get to see the true beauty of the diamond and its amazing light performance.
What makes the Octagon diamond even more interesting is the way you set it. Depending on how you orientate the diamond, it will give your diamond a different look. You may choose to set your diamond at either of these styles to suit your personality.
By setting the prongs on the tips of the diamond, it will bring out the octagon shape of the diamond.
If you pefer a more squarish appearance, we can set the prongs on the flat corners of the diamond, which will give a boxy silhuotte.
