    Ikuma Canadian Diamond Bridal Set 14K

    From the frozen tundra of Canada’s Northwest Territories, we proudly present The Ikuma™ Diamond Collection by Ben Bridge Jeweler.

     

    Through a fascinating story of discovery, perseverance and environmental sensitivity, the Ikuma™ diamond is now available exclusively at Ben Bridge Jeweler.

     

    Formed deep in the underground more than a billion years ago by the mysterious forces of nature, the Ikuma™ diamond was thrust closer to the earth’s surface by powerful volcanic eruptions. In 1991, after years of exploration, traces of these diamonds were discovered in the remote barren land of Canada’s Northwest Territories.

     

    Following discovery and excavation, the diamonds are cut and polished in a state-of-the-art facility in Canada to the exacting standards of Ben Bridge.

    Diamond Light Performance

     

    The ASET® is a tool (created by the American Gem Society) that we use in judging the light performance of the diamond. Light performance is determined by the cut of the diamond (see our section on the 4 C’s of diamonds for more information). The return of light is represented by four different colors; red, green, blue and black.

    •  Red is the most desirable. Red represents light that travels through the diamond unobstructed and with full intensity. This is the light that makes the diamond bright and brilliant.
    • Green represents the less efficient light. It can reflect off objects or it might enter the diamond at indirect angles. This light may contribute slightly to contrast, but for the most part is undesirable.
    • Blue represents “contrast”. It is the “texture” or pattern of light and dark areas that our eye finds pleasing. It is caused by light that could have entered the diamond, but is blocked by the viewer’s head. It should be distributed in a symmetrical pattern.
    • Black (and occasionally white) represents “leakage” which is an area from which light literally leaks out of the diamond and is lost. Leakage is less desirable and in all cases should be minimal.

     

    These are images of a Ben Bridge Ikuma™ diamond when viewed under with ASET® device. The Ben Bridge Ikuma™ diamond exhibits extraordinary intense return of light as shown in these images.
