The Elara Cut was developed in Antwerp, Belgium, in partnership with the Diamond High Council and Antwerp University. The cut is patented and the name is trademarked.
While the Elara Cut Diamond has a square outline, its developers say it has the brilliance and scintillation of a round diamond. In a company survey, consumers were asked to choose their favorite diamonds by shape. The Elara cut scored 23%, second only to the round brilliant cut.
With 61 facets, four more than a Round Brilliant Diamond, Elara is a truly unique new diamond shape. The Round Brilliant Diamond owes its beauty to a combination of precise symmetry, facet placement, and the natural reflective properties of fine diamonds.
It is recognized by the award of a Design Patent of the United States, number 941,851. In addition, the Elara Diamond has received a Copyright Registration for its unique shape, the highest measure of recognition for the creative work that went into the design of the cut.
Elara has a collection of jewelry available through premiere jewelers across the United States.
We are not able to sell the Elara Cut or the Flanders Cut diamonds at the present time. Most of our clients who like the looks of a Elara Cut diamond, end up purchasing a square radiant. Square radiant cut diamonds (illustrated on the right) can have exceptional brilliance, even compared to a Elara Cut diamonds, but the greater selection and larger millimeter size for the price make them more affordable and attainable.
