DIAMONDS 101:
2. CUT

Cut not only refers to a diamond’s shape, but to the proportion and arrangement of its facets and the quality of workmanship. The amount of brilliance, sparkle and fire in a diamond is determined by cut. Currently only round diamonds have a grading scale for the actual cut. These grades range from “Excellent” to “Poor.” The polish and symmetry, which are part of the cut, have the same grading scale in all shape diamonds.
