Trielle Diamond

Trielle is a patented triangular brilliant cut diamond that differs substantially from any other triangular diamond on the market. (United States Patent D250,100). Every Trielle diamond is an equilateral triangle that is cut with 50 facets – 41 (including the table and culet) plus 9 girdle facets. Trielle diamonds are cut from rough diamonds called macles – hard, flat, often triangular-shaped rough diamonds which usually contain a twin crystal. Because of the many irregularities in the graining of this type of rough diamond, a high degree of cutting expertise is required. The pavilion angles are cut first to shape the rough diamond and create depth. After the pavilion angles, the crown facets are cut and the proportions of the table are determined. The girdle facets are then polished making sure that the resulting shape is a perfectly equilateral triangle. The table and culet are polished last to ensure that there are no scratches or bruises on the stone before the final step. The final step is called brillianteering. It is in this final step that the accuracy of cutting is most crucial. At this point each facet is formed symmetrically-one facet in relation to another. Certificate of Authenticity.


Henry Meyer Diamond Company has branded the Trilliant diamond which is cut exclusively with straight sides as an equilateral triangle, slightly pinched at the tips. The finished diamond contains 50 facets. The term “trilliant” is often used as a generic name for triangular modified brilliant diamond shapes since it is not trademarked or patented.

Tycoon Cut

The patented, Tycoon Cut‚ is a rectangular mixed cut with 7 crown facets and 20 step-cut pavilion facets. The faceting of the crown is what makes the Tycoon Cut unique, as the top center facet is in the shape of a diamond, making it “the only diamond with a diamond on top”. It is this table facet arrangement that gives it a higher degree of brilliance and fire, and enables it to better hide inclusions than a traditional rectangular cut. The step-cut pavilion design allows the color of the diamond to appear to be higher than it actually is. The diamonds are polished in the company’s factory in Netanya, Israel, from rectangular crystal rough diamonds. This cut is manufactured in a variety of step-cut shapes: square, rectangular, taper, cut corner square, and trapezoid. Each stone is laser inscribed with the brand name and a serial number; and diamonds (40 points +) come with a GIA certificate.

Yin Yang Diamond

The yin yang symbol has been popular as an element in jewelry for many years. The innovation here is that it is being offered in a diamond – a classic symbol of love. In ancient Chinese philosophy the concept of yin and yang represents the two opposing forces of the universe. Yin, the dark side, is cool and feminine; yang is brighter and corresponds to light and the masculine. Yin is water, while yang is fire. The Yin Yang Diamond brings these two opposing sides together; and by juxtaposing 2 diamonds of 2 colors the composite shape creates the illusion of one whole that faithfully reproduces the ancient symbol. The Yin Yang Diamond can be worn together or in 2 separate ways – with each partner wearing a different color. The most popular combination is black and white, which reflects the traditional yin yang, but the branded cut is being offered in all colors.

Zoe Cut

The Zoe Diamond (modified round 100 perfectly designed facets) uses a new mathematical approach allowing almost twice the amount of light to reflect within the diamond. The Zoe is polished in an extremely limited diamond by Gabrielle Diamonds and is considered to be ultra-exclusive – 12 per year – once a month.
