Diamond Cut Information
It is in the hands of the master diamond cutter to bring out the scintillating fire of a diamond. A well cut diamond reflects the maximum amount of light, through the diamond from one mirror-like surface to another, dispersed through the top of the stone. Diamonds cut too shallow or too deep lose light that spills through the side or bottom. Consequently, a poorly proportioned stone is less brilliant and spectacular and accordingly less valuable.
