CUT
Diamond cut

Choose a cut grade

cuttoolimg1

Signature Ideal cut: Top 1% of diamond quality - with precise proportions, polish and symmetry - allowing the diamond to reflect even more light than the standard Ideal cut.

cuttoolimg2

Ideal cut: Highest cut grade. Its proportions produce a beautiful balance of fire and sparkle in a diamond.

cuttoolimg3

Very Good cut: Very slightly less measurable fire or sparkle than an ideal cut diamond, at a more affordable price.

cuttoolimg4

Good cut: Quality at a lower price than a very good cut, still producing a beautiful diamond for the budget-minded.
