Trillion cut diamonds were first developed in Amsterdam, and often traditionally used as side stones to a larger solitaire on engagement rings. However, for the more adventurous spirit, the trillion cut diamond makes a perfect center stone as it can hold it's own with no problem. The trillion shape is a brilliant cut, which means that it catches the light well which is what gives it that sparkle and fire.
The exact design of trillion cut diamonds truly depends on two things: the skill and preference of the cutter and the natural characteristics of the stone. The diamond can be a triangle with pointed corners, or more rounded, with 25 facets on the crown, and 19 facets on the pavilion. The crown is the upper part of the diamond above the girdle. The girdle is the narrow rim around the diamond.
Trillion Cut Diamonds for the Adventurous
While trillion cut diamonds are certainly not as popular as round cut diamonds or even princess cut diamonds, they are most definitely gaining in popularity. They used to be reserved as an accessory to the larger center stone in many rings, but have begun to come into their own and take center stage. The trillion cut is not for the person looking for that classic ring, but rather for that person that likes to take chances and go on adventures.

Truly a class act
Its is our 25th wedding anniversary. My wife had hinted that she wanted a "cocktail" diamond ring.....yellow diamond. Who am I to say no.....right.
I contacted Moishy in December 2020. I gave him the go ahead in January time frame. I had googled a yellow diamond ring and found a beautiful ring...oval yellow diamond with Cadillac diamonds flanking the center diamond. On top of that the platinum setting had embellishments throughout it. It was and is a very CLASSIC setting.
Well.... the ring arrived today. It is EXACTLY as the pictures I had furnished to Moishy. I live in the West Coast and MDC is in NYC. So there is the distance....and I did not even talk to him on the phone. The pictures were very clear and made it possible to replicate. But it still needed to be replicated.
AMAZING job.....truly. I could not be happier with their service and would not hesitate to recommend MDC to anybody. Truly a class act business.
Thank you again......
