Not to be confused with the shape of a diamond, cut refers to the arrangement of a diamonds facets, the measurements of its angles and much more. Cut is the most important of the 4 C's and is the only "C" under man's control.
A diamond’s shape refers to its external form, which can be round, oval, cushion or heart-shaped, among others.

A diamond’s cut determines how much light the stone reflects. The diamond may have great color, clarity and carat, but if it reflects only a little light it will be dull and lifeless, while a diamond with a great cut will emanate fire, sparkle and allurement.

Cut has the single biggest impact on the sparkle, brightness and the beauty of a diamond!

Cut Grade helps but you will need our eyes to tell the difference. No jeweler ever buys a diamond without seeing it first and using the certificate as just a starting point and neither should you. We tell ALL our clients to look at plenty of diamonds so that you can see the difference for yourself.
