MY GIRL DIAMOND
A SOUTH AFRICAN FIRST
The world’s first square-cut diamond with a diamond-shaped table, the My Girl Diamond cut was pioneered by Yair Shimansky after three years of research and development. It was the first internationally patented cut to originate from South Africa, making it a truly unique creation that cannot be bought anywhere else in the world.
Only local South African diamonds are used for the My Girl cut: hand-selected by a Shimansky expert directly from a South African mine, you can rest assured that only the finest quality diamonds were chosen for your My Girl Diamond jewellery creation.
What makes the My Girl Diamond unique is that is can only be polished from a “crystal” shaped rough diamond, which in its natural form, resembles two joined pyramids. This shape is exceptionally rare in nature, thus there are very few rough diamonds that can be polished to achieve the My Girl cut.
Just like a relationship requires sacrifice and compromise to grow and last a lifetime, as much as half of the rough diamond is sacrificed to become a My Girl Diamond. But, like in so many of life’s situations, the bigger the sacrifice, the bigger the reward.
THE ESSENCE OF PURE ROMANCE
The value of a My Girl Diamond lies not only in its rarity, design, or beauty: it lies in the precious moment it captures. Celebrating your love and commitment, a My Girl jewellery creation is a testament to the love you share, and a magical reminder of a treasured moment spent together. Re-live your happiest memories with every glance at the beautiful jewellery creation you hold so dear to your heart.
The essence of romance and beauty, the My Girl Diamond is the symbol of infinite love and devotion. Like the love it represents, it is a unique design of exquisite beauty, dazzling with the most incredible brilliance. Representing an eternal love and commitment between two people, the My Girl diamond will catch your eye at a first glance, and capture your heart the moment it is presented to you by the one you love. Its beauty is undeniable, and its spellbinding qualities are indescribable, but the true brilliance of the My Girl diamond is only realised when it is worn by the one it was meant for. True brilliance is brought to life and made yours in the majestic My Girl Diamond.
REFLECTING LIGHT WITH EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE
Beautiful and one-of-a-kind, the woman of your dreams is unique in every way. Expressing your love and devotion, and capturing a special moment like your engagement or anniversary, is the beginning of the ultimate romantic quest: to find the perfect diamond that matches her sparkling personality, and mesmerises her the way that she mesmerises you.
Just like the woman of your dreams, the Shimansky My Girl Diamond is in a class of its own. A unique cut founded in South Africa, it catches light with every movement, and with the perfect balance of fire, brilliance and scintillation, it delivers a mesmerising dance of light in an exclusive square cut diamond.
A DIAMOND DESIGN LIKE NO OTHER
The My Girl diamond is the realisation of a dream to create a perfectly balanced diamond with the ultimate combination of brilliance and scintillation. Unlike other diamonds that reflect light from the top of the stone only, the My Girl Diamond reflects light when viewed from all angles, including its sides. This is due to the positioning of its facets, which were meticulously designed to perfect symmetry and proportion.
The My Girl Diamond is an eight-sided square-cut diamond with a diamond-shaped table. It has a completely unique design and range of characteristics that sets it apart from other diamond cuts. Unlike a regular square-cut diamond, the corners of the My Girl Diamond are angled instead of sharp, making it ideal for a range of different jewellery settings. Because of the scientifically-calculated positioning of its facets, colour is evenly distributed throughout the stone, whereas princess cut diamonds appear dark in colour in their corners.
The My Girl Diamond is the result of a combination of the latest specialist diamond technology, and the knowledge and experience of skilled diamond cutters and polishers. Cutting and polishing a rough stone to become a My Girl Diamond is an exact science that requires artistry, experience and close attention to detail.
Only a master diamond cutter can achieve this intricate and fascinating cut that reflects brilliance from every angle. Because the My Girl Diamond is cut and polished to exact specifications, and exclusively created in the Shimansky in-house diamond cutting and polishing workshop, the highest standards are upheld. The Shimansky pursuit for perfection is evident in the sublimity of the My Girl Diamond cut.
The My Girl Diamond is a Shimansky signature diamond cut, and is set in a wide variety of different jewellery designs; one of the most well-loved designs being the My Girl Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring.
