The classical Round Cut diamond ring, or Brilliant Cut diamond ring as it is often called, is the leading style of diamond cut in the world diamond market. It has the most brilliance due to its perfect round shape and the 58 facets that characterise the modern round brilliant cut diamonds.
Although there are 58 facets, the proportions and angles are all different due to the rough diamonds being different shapes with different clarities. Often the stone is cut to get the best yield from the rough material. DDS Diamond Design Studios use the best grade Brilliant cut diamonds to manufacture the highest quality diamond rings in Adelaide, as this is what our customers prefer.
Brilliant cut diamonds have three categories referring to the quality of the overall cut. They are classified according to Cut, Polish and Symmetry and each one is graded between Excellent and Poor.
The Cut grade describes the overall quality and its closeness to the designated perfect cut angles and ratios (percentages). Surprisingly, it doesn’t cost a great deal more to have an excellent cut grade diamond in your ring.
The Polish grade describes the smoothness of the diamond’s surface. Polish is usually very good to excellent nowadays due to the superior machinery used in modern cutting factories.
Symmetry refers to the angles, proportions and facet alignments which determine the way light travels through the stone and how it exits the stone.
The top-grade cut, sometimes called the ideal cut, often shows what is called ‘Hearts and Arrows’. This is when all the diamond’s facet angles and percentages are the same or very close to perfect. You can see under a special scope a beautiful pattern of arrows when looking from the top of the stone and hearts when the stone is turned upside down.
