At Tiffany, we cut our own diamonds. We take the world’s highest quality rough diamonds and put them in the hands of the world’s best stonecutters. These skilled artisans craft the best-proportioned diamonds instead of the heaviest diamonds, ensuring that each and every stone’s full potential is unlocked. They ensure the precise positioning, shape and angle of each of the diamond’s facets to maximize brilliance and fire.
Tiffany diamond cutters refuse to compromise. When the choice is size or beauty, we always choose beauty, so that we outshine all others.
Tiffany’s diamonds are brighter and more vibrant because we craft them that way. And only the most perfectly cut diamonds earn the right to be placed in the legendary Tiffany Blue Box®.
In fact, we are so confident in the superb quality of our diamonds that we stand behind them with a lifetime warranty.
