Cut

Cut: Sometimes called "Make" refers to the:

  1. Proportions
  2. Symmetry
  3. Polish

Colour and Clarity are graded, based on standards and msystems widely accepted by the diamond and jewellery trade.

 

Evaluation of Cut is much more complex. There is no widely recognized cut grading system that can be used to objectively compare diamonds for quality of cut.

 

The Antwerp Ideal is the Round Brilliant Cut Diamond that is recognized to have EXACTING PROPORTIONS, ABSOLUTE SYMMETRY and THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF POLISHING.

 

 

"Cut" is often confused with "Shape"
