Can someone explain to me how some stores sell diamonds with over 100 facets? how is that possible? are they real diamonds? I have been looking at a diamond with over 100 facets and it sparkles like crazy , it’s almost hard to believe its an actual diamond . Bees can you share your rings if you have a diamond with over the standard facts and tell me how many your diamond has? thanks so much , just genuinely curious

My store has the “Kessler 81” which is a diamond with 81 facets. They are in the sidestones of my set (main stone is Princess.) Very sparkly. Very real.

It is probably a propriotary cut. 58 is just a typical round brilliant but it can be however many the cutter wants to make.

This is a jubilee cut diamond, it has 88 facets. I would think like someone else said that it’s probably a proprietary cut

Diamonds are cut into shapes with certain numbers of facets. 58 just happens to be the most common cut for round diamonds. But nothing about the diamond makes it impossible to cut it into a different shape. Since they don’t naturally have facets and have to be cut to sparkle, the cutter can do whatever they want regardless if they are real or not.
The place you are looking probably has their own special cut.

I had a LEO with a larger number of facets – I dont remember how many exactly but the thing was only an SI1 and sparkled like a XXX. You can hide a lot of inclusions with one of these cuts.
