Diamond Cut

By: Mr. Praven Sharma

Cut height is the most important factor in a diamond's brilliance. Since it's all about light optics and the ideal angles to produce the maximum effect the cut is critical to the beauty of the diamond. An excessively deeply cut stone will also affect the way the light passes and reflected in the mass of the diamond. 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. In a round stone you should try for 58-60 degrees in total depth, with the table at about the same for a bright diamond with fire and life.

?Many people confuse Diamond cut with the shape of a diamond. Cut refers to not only the shape of the diamond, but its proportions and finish, factors which determine the sparkle of the diamond.

The cut of a Diamond is the only property which is totally dependent on man. Although often overlooked, cut is actually one of the most important aspects to consider when choosing your diamond.

?Most diamonds are cut round with full 58 facets, and a good cut, or make, has more scintillation, more sparkle. Although the cut of the diamond may affect the value of the diamond, the shape, is largely a matter of personal preference and does not affect the value significantly. It is the work of a master cutter that allows the diamond to be cut in such a way as to permit the maximum amount of light to be reflected through the diamond, and that's a great reflection on you. It is the cut that enables a diamond to make the best use of light.

?It is possible to take the same stone, and depending on which method the cutter decides to use, to either cut it into the most beautiful stone it can be despite heavy weight loss and perhaps lower monetary value. Or else, he can cut a stone to its maximum weight and monetary value, but lose some "brilliance" and "sparkle".
