refers to the shape and proportion of a stone (such as a diamond) after it has been fashioned. The cut determines how the stone disperses and reflects light.
One of the Four C's, the cut of a diamond refers to its proportions.
Refers to both the shape of a stone (heart-shaped, oval, round, etc.) and the make (the precise proportions that result from the diamond's cut). The stone's make determines how much sparkle it reflects more than any other factor.
The act of cutting or polishing a gemstone. This changes a gemstone from its natural state to a more desirable shape.
How well a gemstone is cut or polished. Cutting style - The pattern of the facets in a gemstone.
A term used to describe how a stone is faceted or shaped. The most popular shapes are Round brilliant, Marguise, Pear, Emerald, Princess and Oval.
This refers to the angles and proportions a skilled craftsman creates in transforming a rough diamond into a polished diamond. Based on scientific formulae, a well cut diamond will internally reflect light from one mirror-like facet to another and disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. This results in a display of fire and brilliance. For more information, please visit our diamond education page.
The proportions and finish of a polished diamond (also called make). Cut can also mean shape, as in emerald cut or marquise cut. Proportions are the size and angle relationships between the facets and different parts of the diamond. Finish includes polish and details of facet shape and placement. Cut affects both the weight yield from rough and the optical efficiency of the polished diamond; the more successful the cutter is in balancing these considerations, the more valuable the diamond will be.
The shape and dimension of a diamond or gemstone. To stress the stone's brilliance, proportions of the cut must be exact. date display Shows any combination of the current day, date and/or month.
A description of the type of facet. Meaning faceted.
The shape in which a gem is faceted, such as round, oval, pear-shaped, etc. Also, the quality of the actual faceting job and degree of brilliance of sparkle in which it results.
Commonly refers to the shape of a diamond. It is also used to evaluate the proportions of a diamond and determining the geometric proportions of the diamond. (See the 4'Cs of buying a diamond) Some of the more common terms when evaluating the cut of a diamond are: Ideal Cut Excellent Very Good Good Fair Poor
Refers to the proportions as well as the polish and finish of a faceted diamond. Cut is the most important of the "4 C's and is critically instrumental in determining a diamonds beauty and value.
Cut is known as the most important factor among the Four C's used to determine a diamond's quality and ultimate value. Controlled entirely by the diamond cutter, cut produces the facets that are responsible for brilliance.
The cut (make) of a diamond refers to the proportions given to the polished diamond by the diamond cutter. The cut is the most important of the 4Cs (cut, color, clarity, carat) in determining the diamond's overall beauty.
One of the four C's of diamond quality. Also a portion of a diamond parcel split at a random point rather than by selection. Used when a buyer wishes to buy a smaller parcel than is being offered by the seller.
One of the 4 Cs. Describes the shape, grade, depth, and polish of a diamond. A well-cut diamond reflects light to maximize a stone's brilliance.
Cut refers to a stone's shape, design and faceting style. The beauty of a stone is highly dependent on how well it is cut.
The proportions and finish of a polished diamond given to the diamond by the cutter. Describes the size and angle relationships between the facets and different parts of the stone. Cut determines the overall beauty of the diamond.
Style or form (shape) in which a gem material has been fashioned and/or the proportional dimensions used.
The shape in which a gemstone has been crafted by the jeweler. Choose a round cut or full cut for timeless beauty, or another shape for fashion impact. Gem cuts include the baguette, the pear shape, the trillion, the princess cut, the oval, and the marquise cut.
commonly used to refer to both the outline shape of a stone (round, pear, oval, etc.) and cutting proportions.
1 Differentiates a faceted and polished stone from an unworked crystal. 2 Used to describe the quality of faceting evenness, diameter to depth proportions, and diameter to table proportions of a polished gem.
Diamonique® stones are cut to maximum brilliance. The most common shapes for any gemstone, including Diamonique® stones, are round, marquise, emerald, pear, oval, and square.
Commonly used to refer to both the shape of a stone (round, pear, oval, etc.) and the make (the exact geometric proportions to which a diamond is cut). The make of a stone is the most important factor in determining how much sparkle a diamond produces.
Cut refers to the angles and proportions a skilled craftsman creates in transforming a rough diamond into a polished diamond. Based on scientific formulas, a well-cut diamond will internally reflect light from one mirror-like facet to another and, disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. This results in a display of brilliance and fire. Diamonds that are cut too deep or too shallow lose or leak light through the side or bottom, resulting in less brilliance, and ultimately value.
When the term "cut" is mentioned, most consumers think of shape. But, cut and shape are different. Cut refers to the proportions, symmetry, and polish of the diamond. In its rough state, a diamond's beauty is well concealed. Through cutting, the magnificent optical beauty of a diamond is revealed. A diamond cutter's challenge is to balance beauty with weight retention from the rough diamond crystal. But, because size is important to many consumers, often cutters sacrifice diamond beauty in order to save weight, maximizing the size of the finished diamond.
This refers to the angles and proportions a skilled craftsman creates in transforming a rough diamond into a finished, polished diamond. Based on scientific formulae, a well cut diamond will internally reflect light from one mirror-like facet to another and disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. This results in a display of fire and brilliance. The better cut the stone, the better the sparkle, or 'brilliance'.
A gemstone's cut is what gives it sparkle. The stone admits light through the top, it bounces around inside and comes back out at the top. In this way the maximum amount of light is reflected.
The method of faceting a gem.
Going from rough to finished stone, whether it be pear, round, marquise etc.
The proportions and symmetry of a diamond. The cut determines how well it reflects light, which is responsible for its brilliance.
One of the most important of the 4 c's, and the hardest to judge. The cut is the geometric proportions of a gemstone that allows the inner fire to shine through. Cut is graded from Ideal to Poor and will be stated as such on the gemstone's certificate.
Refers to the angles and proportions a skilled craftsman creates in transforming a rough diamond into a polished gem. A well-cut diamond reflects light internally from one mirror-like facet to another, disperses it and reflects it again through the top of the stone. Poorly cut diamonds leak light through the side or bottom, resulting in less brilliance and lower value.
Shape and quality of the cutting of a gemstone.
The style in which a gem has been fashioned; e.g., emerald cut, brilliant cut. Also refers to a gem's proportions; e.g., well cut.
The shape and style of a finished gemstone is known as a â€œcut.
Perhaps one of the most misused of the 4 C's, it refers to the style of cut (brilliant, emerald), the shape of the stone (round, heart-shaped), and the geometric proportions to which the diamond is cut.
Proportions rating as determined by Sarin Analysis.
The cut of a diamond represents its proportions and finish. A diamond cut with correct proportions and angles will reflect the maximum amount of light. Cut also refers to the shape and style of a polished gem.
This refers both to the proportions and finish of a polished diamond. As one of "the Four Cs" of diamond value, it is the only man-made contribution to a diamond's beauty and value.
When a gemstone is desired to be used in jewelry, it is cut depending on the size and shape of the rough, as well as the desired piece of jewelry to be made. As a rule of thumb, a cut gemstone will reduce the mass (described in the carat) by about 50 percent.
