Know your diamond cut.

There are so many things to consider when you are choosing the perfect Diamond Engagement Ring and one of them is to understand the different diamond shapes and their cut, as this is a diamonds most important characteristic.  The cut of a diamond has the greatest overall influence on a diamond’s beauty and determines how much your diamond will sparkle.  Most people identify the cut of a diamond as purely  its shape for example, Pear, Marquise, Emerald, Round Brilliant.   However, diamond cut also refers to the cut grade of the diamond.  In-fact how well a diamond is cut will determine how well the diamonds facets will interact with light and how much it will sparkle.   You can read more about the diamond cut in our Diamonds International 4’c’s diamond guide.

Round Brilliant Cut diamonds have traditionally always been the most popular of all diamond cuts due to their symmetry and ability to capture the light beautifully.  Skilled cutters have been cutting round diamonds for over six centuries and during this time the precision and cut of the diamond has progressed through many stages to evolve into the 58 faceted modern Round Brilliant Cut diamonds that you see today.  Modern cutting techniques also allow for even the smaller round brilliant diamonds to be exceptionally cut to ensure that their is excellent light dispersion to maximize the diamonds fire and brilliance.
