Cut

The cut of the diamond is the one attribute man has control over, and is one of the most important of the 4 C’s. Cut is more than its shape. It covers the crown angle, depth, pavilion angle, polish grade, symmetry grade, and table of a diamond. A properly cut diamond will return the maximum amount of light to the eye creating superb brilliance and a fiery, sparkling appearance. This will also cause the diamond to appear larger than other stones of the same carat weight, but not cut as well. Be sure to check out the cut grade assigned to the diamond by the evaluating lab.
