*Note: Size 7-1/2 (sizeable)

Lucida ™
The Lucida™ diamond cut, introduced by Tiffany & Co. in 1999, is the result of decades of development by the famed company. In this elegant cut, elements of the Asscher and antique cushion-cuts were melded into what is considered a more contemporary diamond cut.
What, then, separates the Lucida™ from its contemporaries? Its principal features are a modified square cut with truncated corners, a high step-cut crown, a small table and brilliant faceted pavilion - making for fifty total facets in the Lucida™ cut.
Retailed exclusively through Tiffany & Co., the Lucida™ requires a special setting designed specifically for the diamond and based on the nature of its cut. This specialty cut diamond is marketed to the contemporary wedding client in the form of solitaire and three-stone rings.

Tiffany & Co.:Charles Lewis Tiffany (1812-1902) founded the firm that bears his name in 1837. The boutique style business retailed stationery, silver, jewelry and objects d'art. With the growth of their jewelry interests, Tiffany soared. The company is credited with revolutionizing the jewelry industry by the invention of the open six-prong diamond setting. By 1907, the son of the founder, Louis Comfort Tiffany, rose to international attention for his profusion of the arts: painting, art glass and jewelry. As Tiffany & Company expanded, they offered select designers the ability to sign their pieces designed for the Tiffany & Co. brand; such as in 1955 Donald Claflin and Jean Schlumberger, in 1967 Angela Cummings, later Elsa Peretti in 1974 and most recently Paloma Picasso in 1980.
