Your Guide to Become a Jewelry Expert
Cut is the basic facet arrangement of a diamond. It is the only attribute in a diamond a human can modify unlike color and clarity as it decides how a light ray will enter and get refracted from a diamond. The finer the cut, the brilliant is the diamond’s shine and the more is its value. Hence it is one of the most important criteria for judging a diamond's value as it directly affects its appearance.
Cut of a diamond affects its Brilliance (reflection of light), whereas Polish (smoothness of facets) and Symmetry (alignment of facets) affect the sparkle of a diamond. A poor polish can make a diamond look dull and a poor symmetry can misdirect the light reducing the sparkle.
There are three types of cuts as shown in the figure:
In which light refracts away through the bottom.
In which light gets reflected through the top producing maximum brilliance.
In which light refracts away through the sides.
Diamond cuts are graded on the following scale established by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) :
The various dimensions of a diamond are defined as follows :
If you want to buy a diamond with utmost brilliance, then Excellent cut grade is a suitable option with good polish and symmetry.
However, if the budget restricts you, a diamond with good polish and symmetry and excellent or very good cut can be chosen in G-H color and SI1 or SI2 clarity.
