The cut of your diamond is its most significant characteristic and at Grounds Jewellers, we believe it is a factor to consider carefully.
If cut properly a diamond reflects the light back up through the center of the stone to give its characteristic sparkle. A master cutter ensures full light dispersion,
maximising the inherent beauty of the stone. The quality of the cut is called the "make".
If a diamond is cut too
narrow and deep, it hides some of the carat weight in the base, making the stone appear smaller than its given weight.
If a diamond is cut too wide and shallow, it will
undoubtedly have a large top diameter for its given weight but light will leak through the bottom of the diamond, making it appear dull.
A well-cut diamond will reflect
the maximum amount of light back through the top of the stone, making it appear larger.
