A first-class cutting is what brings blaze to the ice. One of the most significant and important characteristics of a diamond is its cut. Cuts of a diamond refer to its proportions, evenness and polish. It is the cut that verifies the symmetry of the stone's facets, its overall proportions, and its capability to reflect light. A well cut diamond will attains high level of brilliance, sparkle, and durability. Even if a diamond is graded well in other areas, a poor cut can give a dull and muted outcome. A diamonds beauty greatly depends on cut than any other factor. In simple words, if a diamond does not catch your eye or it doesn’t flash in light it can be labeled as not well cut.
Cut showcases the amalgam of scintillation, fire and brilliance. A gem gets its identity from the cut as depending on the cut facets the bright flashes of gems are evoked. It is required to cut the facets in symmetrical order otherwise the diamond loses its brilliance as the dispersion of light does not occur with veracity. The diamond cutters are also enforced with the responsibility to pay attention to the size of the diamond also as a brilliantly cut diamond also reduces its worth if its size appears to be relatively short. A proportion must be maintained in between the depth of cut and size, so that the attributes of cut fire, brilliance and scintillation are achieved while its generic size is also retained. A specific depth must be maintained while cutting a diamond, if it is too shallow, the in going light escapes through the bottom of the diamond and in case the cut is too deep, the entering light again passes through the bottom of diamond after refraction. If we observe a well cut diamond, intense fire can be sighted that arise when the traversing ray of light entering the diamond undergoes many refractions inside and at last reaches the eyes of beholder bringing the iridescence effect alive in front of eyes. An excellent cut diamond when emblazoned in a yellow gold engagement ring, it brings out beauty of the ring with its fiery sparkle. Eternal glint of diamonds are beyond compare, but still depending on the variation of cut, the blaze of diamonds vary.
