When it is about diamond its cut and shape are two different things, though most of the consumers use the term diamond cut and diamond shape interchangeably, though the shape of the diamond means how it appears due to its out line like a heart shaped diamond, or a round diamond or any other fancy shape diamonds which just by looking we get to know that a round diamond is circular and heart shape diamond looks like a heart.
Most of the diamond rough or uncut diamonds coming out of diamond mines is cut and polished in India the Diamond miners like Al Rosa and De Beers in South Africa auction the rough diamond which is then here cut and polished and is sold and distributed by diamond manufacturers here to other dealers across the globe. Most of the sight holder companies are Indians.
We at Jewel Fields get you the best bargain deals in manufacturers diamond parcels cut and polished in good quality at cheap prices, fully authentic and guaranteed diamonds and gems. All the diamonds are checked if broken or chipped at girdle, crown or any where secondly cracked diamonds or any diamonds with pit holes visible by naked eyes are rejected out from any diamond parcel before being shipped to you so all the diamonds in the parcel you get are ready to be used in jewelry. same with our natural gemstones like emeralds and sapphires.
Now the cut comprises the arrangement of the facets of a stone, the manner in which it is cut the symmetry, place of facets on the rock, suppose a round cut diamond can be a rose cut diamond which are shallow in height or depth and is a totally different variety of diamond cut whereas round diamonds are generally cut as round brilliant cut which emits the maximum amount of brilliance, with the same cutting manner that is brilliant cut. Also other shapes can also be done in a pear modified brilliant cut diamond which deploy the same cutting style as a brilliant round cut diamond with a pavilion crown table identical to round brilliant, other cuts are step cut which is extensively used in emerald cut forming a hall of frame effect and the same step cut now again can be done in a round diamond.
also shape of any diamonds may remain as it is without even a single facet on the diamond and that can be just a plain polished diamond or gem as some plain briolettes are made that will even keep the shape intact.
So here we understood that cuts is the way or style in which facets in any shapes are arranged and shape is just the outline or boundary in which all the modifications will happen though it may be a princess cut diamond or a square emerald sugarloaf both are square so shape being common in the cuts are different.
About Quality of Cut
Any same brilliant cut can be categorized according to its quality like good cut, very good cut diamond, or excellent cut diamond and it is judged on the basis of the amount of brilliance it is giving and how ideal the proportions are, it should be not too deep or too shallow, the table surface area should be in a proper ratio with that of crown and so on. Fluorescence. polish and origin of the diamond also affects its shine and luster followed by types of inclusions like cloud etc.
ROUND CUT - The most common of shapes is the round brilliant cut diamonds and is the most demanded and selling diamond of all other shapes. Around 75% of the diamonds selling worldwide are round cut diamonds as the facet arrangement linked to each other in them has the potential to produce maximum brilliance / shine then any other shape and cut and thus enjoys advantage with its counterparts. Almost all the melee diamonds used in the jewelry are round brilliant cut melees.
PRINCESS CUT - The princess cut diamond is the second highest preferred shape in diamonds as cushion. They were created first near year 1980, it has parallel 4 sides and pointed corners (square shape). They are easy to handle due to shape with edges and manufacture cut and polish, these gives excellent brilliance / luster.
MARQUIS CUT - This is also a modified cut diamond similar to rugby football tape pointed on 2 sides and bulged from the mid section like a leaf. the marquis diamond has the biggest surface area as to weight. The marquise cut also as oval cut gives illusion of being bigger then weight compared to other shapes like princess or cushion.
OVAL CUT - This is again a brilliant cut diamond and is cut like virtually the round brilliant cut so it has the same kind of brilliance as the round cut diamond but it may have this advantage as an elongated version of round to create an illusion as marquise cut to depict size and weight to be bigger than other shapes like round or cushion of same weight.
CUSHION CUT - A cushion shape diamond is amongst the centuries old cutting styles used to happen of diamonds. It is a kind of modified square cut with rounded ends. The diamonds which are traded as old mine cuts now are mostly cushions. Now with more refinement in the cuts and proportions the demand of this cut has increased.
PEAR CUT - Pear shape diamond is a mix of round and marquis cut diamond with tapered point on one side and round on another, they being brilliant cut show good firing in the stone. The pear shaped diamond needs to be cut with proper symmetry as the tapered point should remain in the center of the round curve of another side, The curved part should be uniformly arched on both side to accelerate towards the taper point otherwise it will no longer remain a pear modified brilliant cut diamond. In diamond trading the prices of all fancy shape diamonds are generally decided as per the price chart of pear shape in Rapaport chart.
EMERALD CUT - The emerald cut diamond is a unique cut which gives a distinct type of look to the diamond, in this instead of the brilliance of a brilliant cut step cutting is done which depicts a hall in a frame effect as the stone is moved it displays a change in the shades from dark to light visible on each step or plains of the cutting. It is more famous in precious gemstone emerald and is the same way done in natural diamonds.
ASSCHER CUT DIAMOND -It is a modified type of emerald cut and is first discovered in Holland by asscher brothers in 1902. It has similar step facets as in emerald cut diamond but is not elongated as an emerald cut but is in square shape with a higher crown and smaller table, the table is always kept small compared to other flat facets, so this type of faceted combination gives the stone more firing or brilliance.
RADIANT CUT -
Its a emerald or square shape diamond which is completely cut as a brilliant cut diamond at crown and pavilion and it has a ability to give more firing/luster then other of its counterparts like cushion or princess cut diamond as it is something in between those two. it looks well in setting with both rounded and square cornered diamond in jewelry.
HEART CUT -
Heart shape diamond is really a unique and different shape from the rest a heart modified cut diamonds signifies love and is used as pendants in most of the jewelry, it is cut like a shape of a heart, but these diamonds if below 0.40ct may not be a good choice as after setting in prongs its shape is not clearly visible in that little size.
Now all these cut have a unique look for every type of color diamonds like pink, orange, black, green, chameleon, white and colorless, next to white brown and light brown that is - a emerald cut diamond if has very light tint of yellow or brown it will be easily visible and same shade if happens in asscher cut or round brilliant cut from the table the very light shade almost appears disappeared. this happens same with gray/grey color shade. Also minor inner inclusions tend to less appear in a round brilliant cut then a rose cut or a oval cut diamond so color, inclusions and luster even depends on kind of cut followed by the quality of polish. now there are even more new technology used in cutting of diamond facets like extra facets are given to the brilliant cut diamonds for more luster.
