Artistry Meets Perfection
The ZENITH CUT™ Engage’s exclusive AGS Ideal Cut diamond. It’s cut to
ideal light performance, proportions, symmetry and polish, which means
it reflects light better than any other cut you’ll find. It also looks
larger than standard brilliant round cut diamonds because of its
Since ZENITH CUT™ diamonds are cut not to save weight at the expense of
ideal performance, ZENITH CUT™ diamonds are larger in diameter as the
cutters are not ‘hiding’ weight on the pavilion where performance is
sacrificed over the profit the cutter makes.
There is more brilliance in the ZENITH CUT™ diamonds as they reflect

diamonds as rays of light enter and exit on shorter paths and with
greater intensity. Hearts and Arrows / Ideal cut are traditional 57
faceted round brilliant diamonds cut to perfection with ideal
proportions and perfect symmetry and polish. As a result, when looked at
with a Proportionscope®, there is a perfect pattern of eight symmetrical
arrows in the face-up position of the stone called the “crown” and eight
symmetrical hearts when viewed in the table-down position called the

The AGS (the American Gem Society) is the laboratory chosen to evaluate
all ZENITH CUT ™ diamonds because they are known for originating and
setting the standards for grading diamond cut. A diamond’s cut is its

the competition. The art and knowledge of the cutter has a profound
effect on the beauty of the diamond. Only a small select group of the
most experienced diamond cutters are permitted to polish ZENITH CUT™
diamonds. ZENITH CUT™ diamonds can take up to 4 times the time to cut an
ordinary diamond. Transcendence takes time, skill and effort.

AGS Laboratories has developed patented technology to illustrate how
light performs inside a diamond, returning light and giving it sparkle.
This technology is called the ASET®, or Angular Spectrum Evaluation
The ASET® image provides a scientific yet simple method to assess your
diamond’s “light performance” through precise color-coding.
This is a computer-generated image of the ZENITH CUT™ that illustrates
the symmetrical patterns created by its cut. The way your diamond
handles and reflects light is what makes it sparkle. The patterns
demonstrate the precision of the diamond's faceting and the degree of
Think of the clarity plot as your diamond’s unique fingerprint. This
distinctive map allows your diamond to be easily identified, and it
supports the evaluation of the clarity grade. The legend above explains
what the grading professionals at AGS Laboratories observed under
