DIAMOND

CUT



  • SHALLOW


  • IDEAL


  • DEEP



Whatever shape a rough diamond has been polished into, the cut determines the diamond’s brilliance, light dispersion and scintillation.

For this reason, the cut plays an important role in determining the price of the stone; therefore it is better to acquaint yourself with all the factors affecting the cut of stone before making purchase.
