Diamond Cut :
“A diamond is valued depending upon the 4Cs – Cut, Clarity, Colour and Carat. The cut signifies the light performance or the brilliance of the diamond. Cut does not refer to its shape but talks about the quality of the polish, symmetry and proportions. However, diamond cut appearance is analyzed on the basis of: Brilliance: The brightness that occurs due to the reflection of all the light falling on it and in the inside of the finely polished diamond. Scintillation: This is the sparkle when you move it in the light Fire: The dispersion of light in a spectrum, as through the prism. It is usually seen as flashes of colour. Understanding it in simple terms, when the diamond is cut with the right proportions, the reflection and refraction of light is from the top of the diamond (technically termed as table), giving a beautiful sparkle. In case the cut is too deep, the light leaks out from the side and if the diamond has a shallow cut, the light escapes through the bottom.”
A carat is estimated based on the weight of the diamond. Two diamonds of equivalent carat will have various costs, contingent upon the other 3 Cs you go with. It’s very basic, truly. Your optimal carat relies upon: How large you want your diamond and clearly. Size is the most apparent factor that decides the worth of all diamond types. The cost of the diamond rises dramatically relying upon its size. By definition, 1 carat is 200 milligram. Since most diamonds sold in the market weigh under 1 carat, the carat is typically partitioned into “points”. There are 100 points in a single carat. Thus, a diamond weighing 3/4 carat would be a “75 point diamond”.
At the point when light goes through a jewel, it skips back, making the precious stone shimmer! A few precious stones have defects as spots and flaws. The more the flaws, the more troublesome it is for light to go through, in this way lessening the radiance. In case you’re lost, here’s all you need to recall: Lesser flaw and incorporations = Better Clarity
Chemically pure diamond is completely colorless. Generally, the rarest diamonds exhibit no color at all (apart from fancy colors). Polished diamonds are graded for minute variations in depth of color, from ‘colorless’ to ‘light yellow’ and ‘light brown. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the authority in diamond certification, grades color alphabetically from D (totally colorless) to Z (heavily tinted).
Grades of Diamond Cut
Signature: Our most exclusive cut that we consider the best is from the selected top graded 1% quality diamonds that is based on the cut. The brilliance and fire of the diamond is higher due to precise symmetry and polish, allowing natural light to reflect better.
Ideal: The next best 3% make it to this category based on the cut of the diamonds. It is considered a rare and elegant cut and is able to reflect all of the lights that fall upon it. This gives a huge sparkle and brilliance to the diamond.
Very Good: The diamonds that are classified under this category are 15% of the top quality diamonds that are evaluated on their cut. Though priced lower, the diamonds reflect nearly as much light as the Ideal cut range.
Good: Based on the cut, the next 25% of diamonds make it to this category and reflect mist of the light that enters the diamond. The price is much lower than the Ideal and Very Good cut.
Fair: The top 35% of the diamonds selected on the cut fall into this category and even though the diamond quality is fair, the sparkle is not as good as the top categories.
Poor: Due to being cut without much precision and symmetry, the diamonds lose the light from the top and bottom. These diamonds are either too shallow or too deep. We do not keep this quality of diamonds that fall into this category. If you are looking for a specific diamond to buy, you may look at our wide range of diamond jewellery or select a diamond for custom setting. We keep a handpicked selection of the most brilliant diamonds that are within the range of Signature to Fair. Not only do diamonds within the cut grade of Ideal and Very Good represent beauty, but they are investments. Each diamond comes with a grading report from GIA and AGSL and it determines the cut characteristic features of the diamond in detail. It shows the culet size, pavilion, crown, girdle size, depth and table percentages”
“Most of the gemstones are cut to enhance the colour and brilliance of the colour. A well-cut gemstone has proportion and symmetry while it ensures that it diminishes the flaws and improves the colour. As gemstones are of different hues and colours, there is no standard procedure or scale of cut that can maximize the brilliance of the specific gemstone. At our website, we have a varied selection in terms of size and cut, but each gemstone is hand picked for its fineness and quality.
Most deep coloured gemstones have shallow cut which allows higher amount of light to penetrate it and light coloured gemstones look better with symmetrical deep cut.”
Facts about selecting gemstone based on cut
It is important that all facets of the gemstone are in symmetry as asymmetrical gemstones are of low quality. High quality gemstones reflect light evenly on the top while are polished smooth. There should be no visible scratches and flaws visible. Like high quality diamonds, each of the cut gemstone has crown, girdle, culet, table and pavilion.
The Certification is essentially your precious stone’s introduction to the world endorsement. All our solitaire jewels are fastidiously investigated and evaluated by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Hoge Raadvoor Diamant (HRD) and the IGI, the most trusted (and known) labs on the planet.
- The value of a precious stone is determined by its gemological makeup, natural rarity and finished quality.
- Diamonds and gemstones of similar appearance can have important differences in value. Even experts need powerful analytic tools to detect synthetics, treatments and enhancement processes.
- A Certificate clearly discloses the details of any item it accompanies, providing confidence for both buyer and seller.
