After decades of pondering the world's most valuable stones, Bez realized that the most unique quality of a diamond is how it breaks the light. This realization lead to a drastic departure from traditional diamond cutting. To highlight a diamond's ability to bend and refract light, Bez designed a cut with fewer, larger facets. Bigger facets result in more fire. The blaze cut has only 13 main facets, while most cuts have over 50 facets. This means the blaze cut produces bursts of vivid colors and fire many times larger than any other diamond cut.
