Diamond Cut

Diamond Cut

Diamond cuts are very important. Sylvie Collection offers the option of custom diamond engagement rings with superior diamond cuts. The carat size, clarity, and cut are hand selected for each ring. So you are sure to get the diamond that fits your diamond engagement ring perfectly. While color and clarity are determined by nature, the cut of a diamond is influenced by the diamond cutter.

The diamond cut is crucial to the look of the diamond engagement ring. A good cut can make a diamond sparkle and shine, giving it that “fire” that makes diamonds the preferred stone of choice for engagement rings. In order for a diamond to show its true brilliance, it must be cut perfectly based on proportions. If the diamond is cut too deep or too shallow, it will not reflect the light properly to the viewer’s eye and, therefore, make the diamond look dull or dark no matter what the clarity or color of the diamond is.

In order to make a sparkling, perfectly cut diamond for an engagement ring, the facets, angled sides of the diamond, need to be cut symmetrically in order to get the light to bounce from facet to facet and shine properly through to the viewer’s eye. These facets are what make the diamond reflect the light, shine, and gives the diamond that sparkle or “fire.”

Shape refers to princess cut, round brilliant, emerald shape, cushion cut, etc. A well cut diamond or poorly cut diamond can come in any shape, carat size, color, and clarity.
