Cut describes the proportions and angles of a diamond. Many people confuse cut with the shape of a diamond. Although nature determines the other threw characteristics, it takes a master diamond cutter or reveal a diamond’s true beauty. Diamonds are available in various shapes including round, square, pear, heart, marquise and oval but cut refers to the angels and proportions of a diamond.
A well cut diamond reflects light from one mirror-like facet to another and projects the light through the top of the stone. The result is a fiery and brilliant display. Diamonds that are cut too deep or to shallow leak light through the side or bottom, resulting in a lackluster appearance and diminish value.
