Cut

The quality of the cut refers to the measurements of the diamond’s proportions, the symmetry of the facets and the quality of the polish. Cut or make is the most critical factor in the overall beauty of a diamond.

For diamonds of different proportions, the light behaves differently as it enters and exits the stone. The combination of proportions can have a dramatic effect on a diamond’s face-up appearance, regardless of whether a stone is claw or bezel set.

A stone of high colour and clarity may still appear dark or lifeless if the quality of cut is poor.
