The term BRILLIANCE or LIFE refers to the total of all light returned to the eye by both surface and internal reflections.
The surface reflection depends on the symmetry
and the polish of the crown facets.
The internal part of brilliance depends primarily on the precision of the symmetry, the angles and proportions of the cut.
To appreciate the total brilliance of a diamond it should be viewed in a combination of diffused and single source white light.
Traditionally northern daylight has been used.
