Abstract

We analyze the Crown of Light (COL) cut using an angular spectrum evaluation tool. Several light performing features of the COL are discussed. In particular, it is found that the angular spectrum of the COL tends to be concentrated and that this maximizes the brilliance and sparkle probability when the COL is aimed at localized light sources. It is contended that the COL represents a novel paradigm in diamond cuts. A distinctive feature of the COL cut is its dome shaped crown.
