unsure on cut

Recommended Posts

Ntevez, you need a lot more information to determine how good the "cut" is. I would urge you to re-read the sections of our tutorial that cover "cut". Even with the table and depth measures you mentioned, what if the culet is off-center? What if the stone is bowed, or missing facets, or has a thick girdle?

 

The ultimate answer is always to have an expert look at the stone to get a precise valuation. In the absence of an expert, you must always look past the depth and table measurements.

 

Good luck!

Good idea on getting the stone checked out. If you are getting a GIA lab report only, you need to get a little more information like a sarin analysis that measures the missing information like pavilion depth and crown angle and pavilion angle. If you want to find out how it performs in different kinds of lighting you need a brilliancescope report that tells you how much brilliance, dispersion and scintillation the stone has.

This would be a poor cut. Usually a really brilliant diamond will be in the 59-62.5% depth. But that is not the only thing that you should look at. It is a combination of all the number and then also a check of how the diamond performs in different kind of light. All diamonds are unique.
