Diamond Cut and Shape

Of the Four C’s, cut is the only characteristic that is completely controlled by man. Its also by far the most important factor in determining beauty. It may take nature to create a diamond’s special characteristics, but it takes a master cutter to reveal its true beauty.

Every diamond begins as a rough crystal. An excellent cut can make even a flawed diamond look brilliant, a poor cut can make even the most perfect diamond look dull, inferior and small.
