Extraordinary principles, precision and pure perfection
What sets Passion8 diamonds apart from all others? Is it their unmistakable beauty, their superior quality, their conflict-free origins, or perhaps their perfectly-proportioned cut which reflects light like no other? The answer... All of the above. Here’s the sparkling difference you could expect from a premium cut Passion8 diamond.
“A skillful performance of symmetry that ensures a spectacular sparkle and a visibly whiter, brighter stone.”
We’ve all heard of the four Cs (cut, clarity, colour and carat)—but did you know that the ‘cut’ is the single most defining asset a stone can possess? Even a diamond of the utmost colour and clarity will look lifeless and insipid if the cut fails to do it justice. When it comes to diamonds, Passion8's team of industry experts are on the cutting-edge of precision faceting. It’s a process which takes up to ten times longer than regular cutting—the end result being ‘the most perfectly cut diamond in the world’.

Passion8 has earned their reputation of being a true purveyor of light refraction, and their exceptional cutting and polishing standards allow for their signature ‘hearts and arrows’. Hearts and arrows, you say?
‘Hearts’ refer to the light that passes through the crown of a Passion8 diamond—whereas ‘arrows’ are the light that escapes from underneath. Precisely-cut angles produce 8 perfect hearts and 8 perfect arrows—a 58 facet cut that’s never too shallow, never too deep. A skilful performance of symmetry that ensures a spectacular sparkle and a visibly whiter, brighter stone.
Conflict-free diamonds, always
“Each and every Passion8 diamond is strictly sourced following The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme…”
Leonardo DiCaprio's heart-wrenching performance in the 2006 Hollywood film Blood Diamond sparked a global conversation about conflict diamonds. These illicitly-mined stones have been used to endow some of the most violent wars in Africa. And with greed and corporate malfeasance at the heart of a demand-driven diamond industry—a social paradigm shift towards ethically-sourced stones stones saw a glimmer of hope on the horizon.
Satisfying the values of conscious consumers, jewellers all over the world are becoming more and more concerned with mine-to-consumer ethics. We, at York Jewellers, think it would be imprudent (not to mention negligent) to ignore this socially and fiscally-responsible movement.
Tracked all the way from mine to consumer, you can be sure Passion8 diamonds are free of conflict. Each and every Passion8 diamond is strictly sourced following The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme—a process that prevents conflict diamonds from entering the supply chain.
“...only the top one percent of gems are selected for cutting.”
