What sets an exquisite diamond apart from a lackluster stone? Some might argue it’s the color, the clarity, or the carats. But of the four Cs, the cut is what gives a diamond its brilliance, scintillation, and fire. These rather fanciful terms are actually quite specific in their meaning.

  • “Brilliance” is a measure of how much light a diamond reflects. 
  • “Scintillation” describes how much the diamond sparkles when moved.
  • "Fire” refers to the flash of colors that occur when light is refracted through the diamond.
