A diamond cut is a style guide used when shaping a diamond for polishing such as the brilliant cut. Cut refers to the symmetry, proportioning and polish of a diamond. The cut of a diamond greatly affects a diamond's brilliance, meaning, a poorly cut diamond will be less luminous.
The most popular of diamond cuts is the modern round brilliant, which facet arrangements and proportions have been perfected by both mathematical and empirical analysis. At CaratPlace.com, all our diamond jewelry is cut using round brilliant.
