THE CUT ENHANCES THE DIAMOND’S POWER TO PICK UP AND REFLECT LIGHTS.

Every diamond regardless of its shape gets its brilliance and scintillation by cutting and polishing. The diamond functions to allow the maximum amount of light that enters through its top to be reflected and dispersed back through its top. Understanding the cut of the diamond is a key element to broadening your diamond education; come see us today in Honolulu to learn more.

WIDTH AND DEPTH

Light traveling through a shallow cut diamond is lost at the bottom of the stone making the diamond appear lifeless.

Light traveling through a diamond that is cut too deep escapes out of the sides of the diamond; thus, darkening all or sections of the stone.

Light traveling through an ideal cut diamond bounces back out the top of the stone; thus, bringing its ultimate brilliance into view.

DIAMOND SYMMETRY

Symmetry is a term that refers to the alignment of a diamond’s facets, which are the flat and polished surfaces. The overall symmetry of the facets allow for a more even and balanced display of light.

DIAMOND POLISH

The surface of the facets should be smooth and polished so that light can pass through them.
