The cut of a diamond can be related to the shape of the stone; however, the actual cut of a diamond is slightly more technical than that. A diamond should be cut with good proportions and symmetry to allow maximum sparkle and brilliance. The cut of a stone can range from very poor, poor, good, very good to excellent and the better the cut of the stone the greater the cost. Certain shaped stones will reflect light better than others; a few of the most popular cuts are detailed below:

Brilliant Cut Diamonds
Princess Cut Diamonds
Emerald Cut Diamonds

Oval Cut Diamonds
Marquise Cut Diamonds

 Pear Shaped Diamonds
