Solasfera is 100% light return. Don't forget, the arrows creates contrasts too and will be dark under white lighting conditions and fire under direct lightings like sunlight. It is the strong light return plus the arrow contrast effect that will make the diamond brilliant. Just like a mirror is 100% light return but it doesn't mean it is brilliant.

The Octagon is brilliant too in its own way. It really depends also in what types of lights you see them under. When I was there, they showed me under spotlight, fluorescent, outdoor, shopping mall and inside of Cheers shop. lol.
I find that the Solasfera looks best when it under direct lights like sunlight, LED or those spotlights (lobby lights). In fluorescence or under the shade, I actually prefer the Octagon for its bigger white areas because its less contrasted. Overall, I thought the Octagon had the best balance to my taste.
Did you see their Octavia? I know they have 5 types; Super Ideal, Solasfera, Octagon, Brellia and Octavia. I donít see much people talking about the Octavia though

Super Ideal Cut
0.62 G VS1

Images wise, all super ideal cut looks almost exactly the same (especially when the diamond is viewed in real life). no point comparing i feel?
yeah, real life no differences mostly.

will try to see super ideal on my next visit there.

All super ideals will look the same in real life, maybe there's a little diff if u put a D and G side by side unmounted for deep comparison, however this is not gonna be realistic situation hence there's no point paying a premium for that. F is a sweet spot for me tho.

In conclusion, to simplify things for the first timers here:

Just get a super ideal and max out the carat. Sacrifice the color to G and VS2 and you are good to go.

Images wise actually dont even need to see coz all scope looks almost exactly the same

Sharing my heart shape diamond ring from JP Its a an anniversary ring
First ring I got for my proposal is the octagon and this 2nd one is a heart shape. Since I already got the octagon that will be my main ring, I thought of doing my 2nd one as a fun ring in rose gold.

For the brilliant and shine, the octagon is way more firey and intense. The heart shape doesnt come close to its brilliance. But it still makes a cute and nice fashion ring on the side. I told my hubby no need to buy any more diamonds for me already..... at least for now... hehehe

Sadly, real life differences is not about whether you can see any difference in the diamond...

"Eeeeer, why your husband so stingy one didn't even get you a D VVS1?"

"Wah, your fiance so noob waste money on a G diamond! See my one triple excellent D VVS1 some more bigger carat leh!"

"Why you buy ring for my daughter also so cheap skate? You don't know need to see the cert got D, got VVS1 one meh?"

Don't really care about others also.

Hi all,

Just received my scopes images today.
Can anyone help me check if my diamond is good?
GIA2268820625

Will crystal/ needle affects the diamond eventually?

Thank you.

I know she don't really care about diamond rings and not particularly bothered by what others think. But when I think about it, I just don't want her to have to put up with fugtard colleagues/relatives buzzing.

Especially from past experiences, I realize that no matter how a woman might feel about something, repeated reminders from colleagues/relatives will have an effect one. Not going to make the same type of mistake or let there be a chance of getting nagged at for life when I can just nip off the possibility by getting the "best" paper spec.

Luckily she is petite, otherwise having to get a one big enough to look decently large on her finger would be painful

Hmm I disagree, nobody has ever asked me about the stats of my ring or made any unpleasant comments. Mine is G VS2. Any ladies experienced such comments as imitated by OP?

I think the lack of presence of a diamond MAY garner a rare comment from an especially kaypoh and rude aunty or colleague or MIL, but specific questions about stats are much rarer. Maybe an offhand query from a close friend who knows something about diamonds, but it should be quite rare that any mocking of ďG color=stingy husbandĒ occurs. Iíve never heard of such a thing. The presence of a diamond or something that looks like it is usually enough to deter any unwanted comments.

Very pretty! I love the bezel design and thin band. Looks awesome!
