Tolkowsky’s Measurements

The person recognized as the pioneer of diamond cutting was the Belgian mathematician, Marcel Tolkowsy. In 1919, Tolkowsky proposed what he thought was the most desirable proportions of a diamond. Fewer than 1% of all diamonds even get close to Tolkowsky’s measurements.

  1. I live only 40km away from Antwerp, one of the diamond capitals of the world. I should really check out the diamond museum there sometime. I guess it’s always harder to appreciate the things we have close to home, especially in terms of museums, sightseeing and tourism.

  2. I have to say, when I look at diamonds in jewelry, I prefer the “old” style cut in vintage rings from the last century! They seem bigger and somewhat “deeper”. Hard to explain for somebody who only likes them and is by no means a diamond expert 😉 Have a very HAPPY weekend! 🙂
