Diamond Cut

The cut of a diamond refers to the way a diamond has been shaped and polished. A well-cut diamond will have proper proportions, symmetry, and polish, which will enhance its sparkle and brilliance. The cut of a diamond can range from poor to excellent.

Magic of Radiant, Dispersion and Spectacular Reflection

Here, diamond proportion is an important feature to consider while buying diamond. Radiant, dispersal, and specular reflection are three distinct attributes that well-cut diamonds exhibit. Firstly, when light enters a diamond’s surface, it will either penetrate the stone or reflect off its polished table. Secondly, the flash of white light one gets while staring at a stone is the diamond’s brilliance, which is the light that is reflected. Lastly, some light beams split up into bursts of colour as they pass through a stone, a phenomenon known as scattering.

Measurement of diamond

Crown

A diamond’s crown is the part of the stone that sits on top of the main body, and directly above the pavilion. This is where you want to ensure that your diamond has been cut at an ideal angle.

Gridle

This is the unsightly portion of the diamond, which typically happens on the girdle. It’s where the entire center of the stone, including table and pavilion, meets together.

Table

The table of a diamond is the top facet, which measures the diameter of the diamond and determines its color. Table proportions can impact the brilliance and sparkle in a diamond.

Culet

The culet is the bottom point or facet of the diamond. It is located at the widest point of the diamond’s crown and points upward and outward. This type may provide positive characteristics for other shapes and styles.

Depth

When a diamond is cut and polished, the depth of that diamond is measured by drawing an imaginary line between the center of table and bottom facets.  If the depth exceeds 1.2 mm then diamond is deep.

Pavilion

A diamond’s pavilion affects its brilliance and sparkle. A figure 8 cut has the most sparkle when cut at a 60 degree angle. Shallow cut reduces sparkle and makes the stone appear less brilliant.
