What is DiamCalc and who benefits from it?

  1. DiamCalc is a system for cut gemstones modelling, which enables many different users to achieve their goals. The real (photorealistic) image of a polished diamond created by the system makes it possible to determine the cut properties that often cannot be measured and to find the optimal combination of cut parameters that would provide the best perception, brilliance, fire, scintillation and others of the stone.
  2. Photographs do not adequately show the sparkle and brightness of a real diamond; until now. DiamCalc since version 3 has High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging that shows the intense sparkles on your computer screen by reproducing the flares or bloom that we see in real diamonds. Bright sparkles often appear to be larger than the facet they emanate from, even extending outside the edge of the diamond.

  1. Scintillation is the last great frontier of diamond cut studies. Regular ray tracing software and lab grading systems have failed to model scintillation and capture this bloom factor.
  2. Now buyers and sellers can realistically show a client, or visualize a distant diamond themselves before buying it. They can see just how it will look as they rock it from side to side in their own environment and even make promotional videos for individual diamonds.

Salient Features

There are advanced professional versions of Diamond Calculator: DiamCalc Pro and DiamCalc Color.
  1. DiamCalc Pro : The DiamCalc Pro is developed to help designing new cuts and optimize existing cut proportions to achieve the best cut qualities. DiamCalc Pro software aids quantitative and qualitative cut performance assessment by outputting into simple text reports that are powerful when made into graphical charts, and images presented in 2D html tables with selected proportion ranges.
  2. DiamCalc Color: DiamCalc Color is an exclusive advanced professional version of DiamCalc software. This software is restricted in its availability on personal request. It is developed especially to optimize the proportions for cutting the best possible fancy color.

What is the difference between DiamCalc and DiamCalc Pro?

There are advanced professional versions of Diamond Calculator: DiamCalc Pro and DiamCalc Color.

The main difference of DiamCalc Pro version is the additional option to vary any two proportions of the cut and estimate quality metrics for these sets of proportions, to create optimization charts from various cut performance data for a range of chosen cut proportions.

The advanced version DiamCalc Pro was developed to help design new cuts and optimize existing cut proportions to achieve the best cut qualities. DiamCalc Pro software aids quantitative and qualitative cut performance assessment by outputting into simple text reports that are powerful when made into graphical charts 2D and 3D, and images presented in 2D html tables with selected proportion ranges.

For example, the chart is created by Golden Software Surfer from data obtained by DiamCalc Pro:
