To some a Triple EX Diamond means status and to others it means beauty, but the bottom line is that a Triple EX diamond is determined by the CUT, POLISH AND SYMMETRY of the finished stone. The facets are all equal, thus providing symmetry. The depth and width are near perfect, so the stone is not too shallow or too deep or too wide or too narrow. The girdle is just right and the culet is the perfect point.

'Triple excellent ' is the highest possible seal of approval within the international diamond community. It is the ultimate in cut perfection and brilliance. It is also an exceedingly rare combination.'

To find diamonds with the best sparkle effect, focus your efforts on GIA certificated diamonds that are Triple Excellent (Triple Ex). Triple Ex diamonds have excellent cut, excellent polish and excellent symmetry.

Can You See A Triple EX Diamond With The Naked Eye?

No, you can't. This is why there is mixed messages about whether it is worth spending the extra money to buy a Triple EX diamond, as they do command a premium. The truth is, you can buy a Triple Very Good or a Triple Good and still have a beautiful stone.

The bottom line is that it is up to the consumer. If you buy a diamond that has a warmer tone and lower clarity, then you might want to consider a Triple EX diamond because what it lacks in color and clarity it will make up for in sparkle, scintillation and shine.

Do We Recommend You Purchase a Triple EX Diamond?

What we recommend is that you purchase a diamond based on your budget. We want to educate you so you understand the diamond that you are buying and know all your options, but we also believe that the best diamond for you is the diamond that you love the most, not what that diamond says on the certificate.

What we do believe is that your diamond should have a certificate, be eye clean, be affordable, be beautiful and be something that as a purchase you will feel good about.
