THE SPARKLE OF A DIAMOND. The cut refers to not only the shape of the diamond but most importantly how well it is cut to create FIRE, BRILLIANCE AND SCINTILLATION. While all the other C’S are determined by nature, cut is the only factor that can be determined by man. Therefore cut is perhaps the most important factor of the 4C’S that should be taken into consideration when choosing a diamond.
A polished diamond’s beauty lies in its complex relationship with light, how light strikes the surface, how much light enters the diamond, and how and what form the light returns to your eye. To achieve such perfection, it takes an expert craftsman to cut a rough diamond into its correct proportions, symmetry and polish allowing you to achieve maximum fire, brilliance and scintillation.
