TYCOON has exemplified the excellence in craftsmanship throughout the years that has resulted in the internationally known Tycoon cut diamond. The Kejejian cousins are Lebanese born with Armenian decent, and came to the United States over 30 years ago with a dream and passion to carry on the family name. Their family has mentored and produced three generations of superior craftsman in the jewelry industry. With a drive to establish their own company, they worked for some of the most respected designers in the industry. Their creativity, talent, honesty and integrity built their reputation amongst their peers and gained recognition. Established in 1987, the Kejejian's TYCOON diamond jewelry designs are innovating and unparallel.
About the Tycoon Cut
TYCOON's most challenging design project was the Tycoon cut diamond, which made its grand entrance to the diamond industry in March 2000, at the American Gem Society Conclave in Philadelphia. With its nine crown facets that give it significantly more brilliance and its signature diamond shaped table that sets it apart, it is known in the industry as "The only diamond with a diamond on top." Now with TYCOON for Brilliante, we bring you their amazing designs and the exciting Tycoon cut using affordable, yet beautiful Brilliante simulated diamonds. See the difference!
Platinum can be used as a finish coating over sterling silver or copper alloys. Its bright, pure luster enhances the brilliance of gemstones and does not discolor or oxidize. Platinum plating is also characterized by its good resistance to surface abrasion, making jewelry pieces more durable against everyday and long-term wear. Over time, platinum plating will wear off and therefore will require re-plating.
To care for your plated jewelry items:
On the Mohs Scale, which measures the hardness of minerals, cubic zirconia is an 8.0 to 8.5. It is important to understand that hardness is not necessarily related to durability. Even though diamond is the hardest mineral (10.0 on the Mohs Scale), it can still be chipped or broken.
The only ways to tell the difference between cubic zirconia and diamond are by use of a thermal probe, by weighing the loose stone or by microscopic examination of surface features and inclusions. Cubic zirconia weighs approximately 65% more than diamond. Therefore, while a 6.25 mm round diamond weighs about 1.00 carat, the same size cubic zirconia weighs about 1.65 carats. If you know the weight of a cubic zirconia, you can figure out the diamond weight equivalent by multiplying the cubic zirconia weight by 0.6, or 60%.
Few natural diamonds on the market today are perfectly cut, and those that are cost much more than the usual diamond. Unleashing the fire, beauty and brilliance of a stone depends on its precise cut. Simulated diamonds are an excellent balance between quality, beauty and price.
Brilliance: The white light leaving a jewel, traveling upward, which is visible to the eye. Brilliance is sometimes referred to as “sparkle.”
Dispersion: Flashes of rainbow colors. Also called “fire.”
Hardness: Resistance to scratching. The higher the number, the more resistant.
Luster: The shininess of a jewel.
Toughness: Resistance to breakage.
