A diamond’s cut enhances the shine and beauty of the stone and makes it look brilliant and fiery. Cutting adds to the value of the diamond; while flaws in cutting can render a stone less valuable. Cutting can enhance the look and feel of the diamond and even make it appear larger than it is; a diamond in the skilled hands of an expert cutter will become all it can be. Diamonds that are cut well have several different properties:

  • Brilliance: The light that reflects from a diamond’s surface
  • Dispersion: The ability of the stone to reflect color and light
  • Scintillation The colors that are reflected when the diamond is moved

All these factors combine to highlight the beauty of a properly cut stone.
