Cut Scale

The cut of a diamond refers to the quality of each edge and the shape. More specifically, the symmetry of all sides of a diamond along with the proportions of each angle are analyzed when assessing cut. These very features are what create the sparkle we all love, and they do this by optimizing the capture and reflection of light. Each diamond is given a rating on cut of: poor, fair, good, very good, or excellent, based on both quality and shape. In order to properly catch, reflect, and scintillate light, the proportion of angles and facets must be right, the symmetry or accuracy of the cuts must be ideal, and the polish must result in a smooth surface.
