HEARTS AND ARROWS
Diamonds with Imperfect Hearts and Arrows but Excellent I-S Images
Sell H&A’s diamonds that do not have perfect hearts as ideal-scope diamonds. Do not mix them back in with your regular goods, market them with a premium as IS Diamonds.We encourage you to produce H&A’s because they sell for more. But even with the best processes, some stones will have poor hearts. Many of those stones will have good Ideal-Scope images; market them that way!You can make H&A’s with most of the proportions in the red region in the HCA charts. I have seen H&A’s down below 25 degrees that look great!
