Characteristics of an Ideal cut

  • The Ideal cut is a mathematical formula for cutting diamonds to precise angles and proportions to gain the optimum reflection and refraction of light. It requires that every facet be placed at exact angles and proportions that create the ideal balance between maximum brilliance and dispersion (Prism Effect).
  • Proper cutting and proportioning alone release the full beauty of a diamond, which affect its durability and directly influence its price.
