Diamond Cut

What is the cut of a diamond? 

A diamond’s cut refers to the proportional aesthetic of the stone’s dimensions to create its sparkle and brilliance. The cut is the diamond’s dimensions and proportions along the smooth edges. As a whole, it is what creates the sparkles and glimmer because of how the diamond refracts light. It is also why a diamond’s cut is the most expensive factor in purchasing. 

How does diamond cut impact the cost of your jewelry? 

Cut on a diamond is the most important factor in determining cost because it is the hardest endeavor to achieve. The diamond has to be cut precisely and then polished many times over in order to achieve straight edges that are perfectly proportional to one another. The higher quality the cut, the more expensive the process is. This is why better cut diamonds with lesser carats may cost more than diamonds with lower cut qualities. 

Grading scale of diamond cuts

For simplicity, we will use a poor, good, very good, exceptional scale. Each represents a different category of cut. Remember this is irrespective of the carat or color of the diamond. 

– Poor/Fair: At this rating, the diamond lets in the most light and the diamond appears either dull or glassy.

– Good: At this rating, the diamond starts to refract light, there is a sparkle to the stone but you can still see parts of the diamond interior. 

– Very good:
