Sirius Star, the brightest star in living skies, is a brand new 80 facet diamond cut- not just another branded round brilliant.

Sirius Star Diamond features greater scintillation and increased light return, improved brilliance and higher visual appeal than any other round brilliant. Independent research conducted has revealed that Sirius Star is the preferred choice amongst a broad audience, and an initial production run sold exponentially quicker than ideal cuts of similar size, colour and clarity.

Compared with other round brilliant and other patented cuts, Sirius Star simply stands out from the rest.

The Sirius Star Diamond was designed by Mike Botha (Embee Diamond Technologies) in 2006, drawing on a lifetime of experience and extensive research into what is currently available locally and abroad. Working in close consultation with several leading diamond experts in North America, Sirius Star was born and is the first of several new patented and trademarked diamond cuts designed by Mike to be launched by wholly-owned subsidiary, Maskwa Otêh Diamonds Inc.

Getting a little technical - Facet definition is what makes Sirius Star Diamond a superior cut. With 80 facets, Sirius Star features an octagonal main facet configuration and 4-tier pavilion faceting. All the facets are indexed and inclined to present the maximum actual and virtual facet definition. A recent submission of a Sirius Star Diamond to a leading diamond research and identification laboratory in New York for evaluation scored 100% for brilliance. (93% is considered excellent).

Sirius Star is also the brightest star in our night sky and was the standard star for the color white in ancient China.

Ancient Greeks believed that Sirius Star's appearance heralded the hot and dry summer months, when men weaken and women become aroused. Often it was described as 'burning' or 'flaming' in literature.

In Hawaii, it was known as Ka'ulua 'Queen of Heaven'.

Critics have called Sirius Star "brilliant".
