Diamond Cut

4 C'S
Cut - Clarity - Color - Carat

 
Diamond Cut:
The most important fact in the 4 C's, is the source of Brilliance and Fire.
Cut means The proportions and finish of a polished diamond. Cut affects both the weight yield from rough and the optical efficiency of the polished stone; the more successful the cutter is in balancing these considerations, the more valuable the stone will be.A Diamond with a proportion of good cut allowed the light to go through the table reaches the facets and reflect so well back evenly in the face up position, with no dark areas, all the facets are exactly where they should be and polished until they gleam. Ideal cut is all about having the right proportions, precise symmetry, and a fine polish.
   
Shallow Cut Diamond leaks the light out of the bottom. Brilliance is lost and the diamond appears glassy. A very shallow cut stone will seem dark as the light exits the back of the stone, the angles not reflecting the light back up through the top of the stone to your eye.
The Light in Deep Cut Diamond escapes from the bottom causing the diamond to appear dull and lifeless. Looking Through a Deep Stone you'll notice a black reflection in the center of the table.
   
  • Diameter
    The width of the diamond as measured through the girdle.
  • Table Size
    This is the large, flat top facet of a diamond.
    The largest facet which sits on top of a diamond. This is where most of the light enters and exits a diamond.
  • Crown Height
    The part of the diamond that is above the girdle. The crown height expressed as a percentage of the average girdle diameter.
  • Girdle
    The narrow rim
    & the outer edge of a diamond which forms a band around the stone that separates the crown from the pavilion. The girdle can be faceted, polished or unpolished
  • Pavilion
    The lower portion of the diamond, below the girdle.
    The height of the pavilion greatly contributes to the diamond's overall brilliance.
  • Culet
    The smallest facet at the bottom of the diamond on the pointed bottom of the pavilion, which is the portion of a cut gem below the girdle.
  • Depth
    The distance between the table and the culet as measured in millimeters. The depth of the diamond divided by the average width. The total depth percentage is a very important element of a diamond's proportions and it is greatly responsible for the amount of brilliance that a diamond will display..
