Like us, each diamond is unique, and that includes their cut. Although many confuse cut with shape, cut refers to the quality of a jeweller’s work in creating facets, light refraction, symmetry and overall shine in a stone. If a diamond is cut poorly, it may look slightly rough, uneven or asymmetrical and, more importantly, won’t reflect as much light or be as valuable as a skillfully cut diamond. There are many types of diamond cuts. Some will naturally create more sparkle, like a brilliant round or princess cut, while others are cut in longer, stepped planes, to showcase the stunning clarity of the diamond, like an emerald cut. To find the best diamond cut, narrow our filter to ‘super ideal’ and adjust the price to suit your budget. For further guidance, refer to our diamond cut chart in the link below. Make sure you consider more than just the cut: the higher the clarity, colour and carat, the more valuable the diamond will be.
