Intensity of the light reflecting out of the stone through the crown (aka 'Dispersion', 'Fire').
A stone with maximum dispersion and fire, a lot of life.
Total amount of white light returned to the eye from a diamond or colored stone as the result of internal and external reflections. The major factors that affect the amount of brilliancy in a gem are refractive index, proportions, polish and transparency.
refers to the amount of light reflected through the surface of a diamond and is maximized by cutting a diamond to the correct proportions.
(brilliance) Degree to which a faceted mineral or gemstone sparkles and returns light from within. Brilliance is dependent on the cup and refractive index of the mineral.
Brilliance is the total effect of light reflected and refracted from the interior and exterior surfaces of a diamond.
Brilliance describes the reflections of white light coming from the diamond.
The white light reflected back from a diamond.
The total quantity of light refracted and reflected (from a gemstone) back to the eye of the viewer.
The amount of white light returned to the eye from the diamond. (In other words, how bright and sparkling a diamond appears)
White light reflections from the surface and the inside of a diamond that determine the brightness of the stone.
The amount of light reflected through and out of a diamond. A stone's brilliance depends on two key characteristics of its cut: symmetry and polish.
great brightness; "a glare of sunlight"; "the flowers were a blaze of color"
in POV-Ray, an attribute that affects the angle between incoming light rays and an object; controls how polished or metallic the object seems. ( Language Reference) ( Exploration Tool)
Cutting a diamond to the correct proportions maximizes its brilliance, defined as white light reflected up through the stone's surface.
Brilliance is the ability of a gem to totally reflect light rays that enter it. High refractive index enhances this property. Improper cutting can reduce a gemâ€(tm)s potential brilliance.
The amount of reflected white light that radiates from the diamond's surface.
the reflection of light directly back to the eye from the surface and from the internal facets of a diamond.
The amount of white light that reflects out from a gem's surface. By cutting a diamond to the correct proportions, a lapidary maximizes its brilliance.
A stone's ability to return white light to the eye. Brilliance is measured according to a refractive index.
A phenomena unique and powerful in diamonds is the extent to which a diamond can reflect light. This "brilliance" is created when light enters through the diamonds table, reaches the pavilion facets, and is then refracted back out through the table to your eye.
The brightness and sparkle of a diamond, not to be confused with its fire or dispersion.
The amount of white light seen within a diamond. Brilliance is affected by the cut of the stone.
Described the reflections of light coming from the diamond to the eye as a result of internal and external reflections.
A characteristic of colour when it is both light in value and high in chroma. See also Value.
The intense, sparkling brightness of a gemstone.
Property of a typeface related to its typographic contrast. Also referred to as sparkle.
White light reflected up through the surface of a diamond. Brilliance is maximized by cutting a diamond to the correct proportions.
Liveliness, or sparkle in a stone when light is reflected from the surface and from the total internal reflection of light.
The total amount of light reflected from both the interior and exterior surfaces of a diamond.
The white light leaving a jewel, traveling upward, which is visible to the eye. Brilliance is sometimes referred to as â€œsparkle.
The amount of sparkle a stone gives off through reflection and refraction of light.
The total amount of white light reflected from the stone. Cut, number of inclusions, color and polish can all affect a diamond's brilliance.
The intensity of white light reflected through the top of the diamond.
The measure of a stone's overall strength of light return.
The intensity of light reflected from a surface. It is sometimes an alternative term for luminosity.
The light-reflecting power from the surface as well as deep inside a diamond. Brilliance is affected by the diamond's proportions, polish, symmetry and clarity.
The brightness that seems to come from the very heart of a diamond. It is the effect that makes diamonds unique among all other gemstones. While other gemstones also display brilliance, none have the power to equal the extent of diamond's light-reflecting power. Brilliance is created primarily when light enters through the table, reaches the pavilion facets, and is then reflected back out through the table, where the light is most visible to your eye.
Brilliance is the reflection and refraction of light displayed through a stone.
Refers to the fire of a stone or the amount it sparkles when light is reflected through its facets.
Brilliance is the combination of high lightness and strong saturation of hue. Prepared by mixing a large amount of hue pigment with a small amount of white.
The amount of light allowed reflected from inside the gemstone based on the quality of its cut.
White light captured from all the surfaces of the diamond and reflected up through the top. A diamond with the correct proportions yields the highest brilliance.
