Diamond Cut

Sunday, 14 December 2008

diamond cutDiamond cut refers to the angles and magnitude created while the diamond is turned into a polished jewel ready to be worn by diamond lovers. Initially such concepts as «cut» and «shape» should not be confused in regards to the diamond. In general, shape means the entire look of the diamond itself that is such attributes as oval, emerald, or pear. When you see the diamond characteristics in a certificate that says «cut» it indicates only characteristics of the diamond in regards to its qualities, but not the shape. Unfortunately some jewelers are not aware of the difference between these two words and their meaning as they are to be.

Diamond cut is the only one and the most important of the 4 Cs, namely color, clarity, carat and cut that is not naturally created when the diamond is originated. So it is useful and interesting to comprehend how this quality affects the properties and values of a diamond. A quality cut makes a diamond shine, and it seems that brightness comes to its very best in the diamond. The angles and proportions of any diamond are determining factors for the diamonds to keep and retract light, which leads to brilliance.

When a diamond is well-cut and well proportioned by the craftsman, it will make good use of light, allowing it to be dispersed and reflected from one facet to another, releasing its brightness, fire and beauty. If a diamond is cut too deeply, light will escape through the sides, causing it to appear darker and less brilliant than it is.

When the diamond is cut too shallow the light that enters through the face reaches the facets and then goes away from the sides or bottom of the diamond without much reflecting back to the eye. And there will be less brilliance as a consequence, as the brilliance is one of the main attractive features of diamonds as it is widely known.

Most gemologists believe that the diamonds are best cut when they follow a formula intended to create brilliance to the highest extent. This formula can be traced in the proportions of the diamond. And the most important factor here is how the depth is compared to the diameter, and how the width of the table is compared to the width of the diamond.

Nevertheless, it is quite difficult for simple outsiders to recognize and identify between a Perfect Cut and a Bad Cut.

Since cut is one of the important of 4Cs, several methods of assessment have been elaborated with the purpose to allow consumers understand and recognize diamond cut. And here are such grades to have a look:

    * perfect
    * first-class
    * very good
    * good quality
    * fair & bad

What is recommended to buy?

One chooses the grade of a cut depending on financial resources and taste. In order to know the grading levels you should understand the various grades. And here are the general hints with descriptions:

Perfect Cut

This type of cutting implies increase of brilliance to the maximum extent, and the classically smaller table sizes of these diamonds have the extra advantage of creating a great volume of shining or 'fire' as well. Perfect quality diamonds are only for the persons who are happy to realize that they have one of the finest things that money can buy and who are happy with it. This category applies only to round diamonds.

First-class Cut

In regards to round diamonds, many First-class Cut diamonds are cut similar to any Perfect Cut diamonds, though they often can be bought at quite lower prices than AGS Perfect Cuts. They should ensure utmost brilliance and fire. Like the Perfect Cut, these diamonds are intended for persons who enjoy the idea that they  possess one of the finest things that money can buy.

Very Good

These kinds of diamonds reflect most of the light penetrating into them shining very well. When making this kind of diamonds the craftsmen choose the cutters to drift slightly from the preferred diamond sizes in order to create a larger diamond. As a consequence these diamonds slightly go outside of some customers' preferences and orders in terms of table size or belt width, though, in most cases many characteristics of diamonds in this range will go beyond certain parameters of diamonds in the Perfect or First-class ranges. Thus, the price for these diamonds is slightly below than First-class cuts.


They are diamonds retracting much of the light that penetrates them. Their sizes go outside of the preferred range because the cutter choose to make the largest possible diamond from the original rough crystal, rather than cutting extra weight off to create a smaller First-class quality diamond. Diamonds in this variety propose an excellent reduction of expenses to customers who do want to fall outside the budget without sacrificing class or beauty of the diamond.

Fair & Bad

A diamond that was fairly or poorly graded, and that reflects poor amount of light into them is the bad-cut diamond. Predominantly these diamonds are cut to increase the carat weight over most other considerations to the maximum extent.

You can be confident that concrete and comprehensive measures are being taken to ensure the authenticity and beauty of the diamonds.

Your diamond is a purchase for the lifetime and you should just care of it as properly as it needs.
