The importance of cut of diamonds or gemstones


It’s important to distinguish exactly what “cut” means when referring to diamonds and other gemstones. Cut does not mean shape. The selection of shape is a matter of individual preference. No matter which shape is selected; its cutting must be evaluated. Differences in cutting can affect a diamond’s beauty, durability, and cost, the latter by as much as 50 percent, or more.

The cutting and proportioning of a diamond or gemstone is especially important because of its effect on the fire and brilliant. Proper cutting and proportioning release the full beauty that sets diamond or gemstone apart from all other gems. A stone with an excellent make will be exciting, while a stone with a poor make will look lifeless-it will lack the sparkle and personality we identify with diamond. In addition, stones are often cut to make them appear larger. But a stone that looks much larger than another of the same weight will not be as beautiful as a smaller stone that is properly cut.

Differences in cutting can also affect the durability of a diamond. Some cutting faults weaken the stone and make it more susceptible to breaking or chipping. Fine cutting requires skill and experience, and takes more time. For all these reasons, a well-cut diamond or gemstone commands a premium and will cost much more than one that is cut poorly.

There are many popular shapes for diamonds and gemstones. Each shape affects the overall look of the stone, but if the stone is cut well, beauty and value endure no matter which shape you choose. We will begin our discussion of diamond cutting using the round brilliant-cut since this is the most popular shape.

A modern round brilliant-cut diamond or gemstone has 58 facets, when a round brilliant-cut diamond is cut well, its shape display the most liveliness because it enables the most light to be reflected back up through the top. This means that round brilliant-cut diamonds will have greater brilliance, overall, than other shapes. However, shape is a personal choice, and other shapes can also be very beautiful. New shapes also appear, some of which compare very favorably to round stones for overall attractiveness.

As a rule of thumb for a well proportioned stone, if the top portion (crown) appears to be roughly one-third of the pavilion depth (distance from girdle to culet), the proportioning is probably acceptable.
