The Basic Characteristics of Diamond 4 Cís:

Cut -  The cut of a diamond is what determine how the light enters the diamond is reflected; therefore how fire and brilliance the diamond will exude. A diamond is cut too shallow with respect to its width will allow too much light to pass straight through the diamond and leaving little light to reflect. Such a diamond will appear dull and lacking in brilliance. A diamond cut too deeply will allow light to escape from the sides of the diamond will also appear dull.

  • Shallow Cut: Light is lost out of the sides, causing the diamond to lose fire and brilliance.
  • Deep Cuts: Light goes straight through the diamond, causing the diamond to appear dark and dull.
  • Ideal Cut: This is a very rare cut, that reflects nearly all light that enters th diamond and create the maximum fire and brilliance.
  • Premium Cut: Reflects almost as much light as the Ideal Cut, but for a lower price, we recommend to purchase.
  • Good Cut: Reflects most light that enters the diamond, but not as much as a Premium. It is less expensive than a Premium Cut diamond, is recommended for purchasing by The Jewelry Hut.
  • Fair Cut: These diamonds are still a quality diamond, but not as brilliant as a Good Cut Diamond.
  • Poor Cut: All the diamonds that do not meet the Fair Cut quality standards are categorized as a Poor Cut diamond. These diamond are deep and narrow or shallow and wide and tend to lose most of the light out of the sides and bottom.

Depth and Table Measurements - These measurements are used to determine how good the diamond cut is, and are stated in percentages of Girdle (the widest part of the diamond).  The percentage that yield and Ideal Cut varies all diamond shapes.  The chart below shows the percentage ranges of a Good Cut for different diamond shapes.

To cut a diamond to Ideal proportions, on must sacrifice much of the rough (uncut) diamond, producing a diamond with a smaller caret weight. Diamond cutters sometimes sacrifice ideal proportions to cut a larger and more profitable diamond. Industry standard valuation of diamonds does not take into account a diamondís proportions, thus a larger diamond with fair proportions will worth more than smaller diamond with good proportions to a diamond cutter, color and clarity being equal.  Ideal cut diamonds are very rare and hard to find by any diamond dealer. As a consumer, you will find that most jewelers price them accordingly.
