Diamond Details

Diamond Shape:

  • Virtually all diamond cuts sold for use in jewelry are one of ten round or fancy diamond shapes. The most popular diamond shapes are:
  • Round
  • Princess Cut
  • Oval
  • Marquise
  • Pear Shaped
  • Cushion Cut
  • Emerald Cut
  • Asscher Cut
  • Radiant Cut
  • Heart Shaped
  • More information about these cuts and more can be found on our blogs, and you can always reach out to us if you have questions.

Diamond Color:

  • Diamond color grades range from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow or brown).
  • If you are wondering why the diamond grading scale starts at D, the Arcane systems used grades of A-C, 1-3, and I-III, etc.
  • GIA set out to standardize these diverse systems and started their scale fresh with a grade of D.
Carat Weight:

Diamond Size:

  • To put it simply, diamond carat weight measures how much a diamond weighs.
  • A metric “carat” is defined as 200 milligrams. Each carat is subdivided into 100 ‘points.’ This allows very precise measurements to the hundredth decimal place. A jeweler may describe the weight of a diamond below one carat by its ‘points’ alone. For instance, the jeweler may refer to a diamond that weighs 0.25 carats as a ‘twenty-five pointer.’ Diamond weights greater than one carat are expressed in carats and decimals. A 1.08 carat stone would be described as ‘one point oh eight carats.’
  • All else being equal, diamond price increases with diamond carat weight because larger diamonds are rarer and more desirable. However, two diamonds of equal carat weight can have very different values (and prices) depending on three other factors of the diamond 4Cs: Color, Clarity, and Cut.

Diamond Polish:

  • Polish refers to the degree of smoothness of each facet of a diamond. When a diamond is cut and polished, microscopic surface defects may be created by the polishing wheel as it drags tiny dislodged crystals across the diamond surface.
  • Depending on the severity, these defects may disrupt light patterns as the light rays enter and exit the diamond.

Diamond Fluorescence:

  • Fluorescence is the glow you sometimes see when an object emits visible light.
  • Some diamonds fluoresce when they are exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays from sources like the sun and fluorescent lamps.
  • This can cause them to emit a bluish light or more rarely, a yellow or orangy light. Once the UV light source is removed, the diamond stops fluorescing.
  • Only about 25% to 35% of diamonds exhibit some degree of fluorescence.
Table %:

Diamond Table Percentage:

  • Table percentages indicate the ratio of the width of the top facet (table) of a diamond in relation to the width of the entire stone
  • The perfect diamond table and depth percentages depend on the shape of the diamond--and one size does not fit all
Girdle Minimum:

Diamond Girdle Minimum:

  • The girdle of a Diamond describes the outer edge and division between the crown and pavilion of a polished diamond.
  • The diameter of a diamond can be found by measuring opposite sides of a diamond girdle using a Leveridge gauge, or calliper gauge.
  • Under the microscope, the girdle of a diamond can vary in appearance.

Diamond Culet Size:

  • The culet (pronounced kyoo-lit) is the tiny point at the base of the pavilion (the tip at the bottom of the stone), where the facets of the pavilion meet.
  • In most diamonds, the pavilion facets are uniformly cut at the proper angle and meet at a perfect point, yielding no culet (sometimes called a pointed culet).
Crown Angle:
49.60 Degrees

Diamond Crown Angle:

  • The crown angle of a diamond refers to the degree of separation between the diamond’s girdle and table.
  • The crown angle plays a major role in a diamond’s face-up appearance.
  • When combined with ideal overall proportions, an ideal crown angle disperses maximum light, also referred to as a diamond’s fire.
  • The expert opinion is that the best crown angle is between 32-35 degrees.
  • When the crown angle of diamond is smaller than 32 degrees it is called a spread-cut, creating a foggy appearance in the diamond.

Diamond Cut:

  • The diamond cut scale for standard diamonds in the D-to-Z diamond color range contains 5 grades ranging from excellent to poor and is the definitive scale for classifying diamond cuts.

Diamond Clarity:

  • Flawless (FL) No inclusions and no blemishes visible under 10x magnification
  • Internally Flawless (IF) No inclusions visible under 10x magnification
  • Very, Very Slightly Included (VVS1 and VVS2) Inclusions so slight they are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification
  • Very Slightly Included (VS1 and VS2) Inclusions are observed with effort under 10x magnification, but can be characterized as minor
  • Slightly Included (SI1 and SI2) Inclusions are noticeable under 10x magnification
  • Included (I1, I2, and I3) Inclusions are obvious under 10x magnification which may affect transparency and brilliance

Diamond Lab:

  • There are 4 major diamond certifiers that grade a diamond on its quality:
  • GIA
  • IGI
  • AGS

Diamond Symmetry:

  • Symmetry refers to how precisely the various facets of a diamond align and intersect.
  • This can include extra or misshapen facets, off center culets and tables, and wavy girdles.
Depth %:

Diamond Depth Percentage:

  • To find the depth percentage, divide the diamond\'s physical depth measurement by its width.
  • Depth is deemed acceptable within a certain range, with any value between 56.5 and 65 percent considered good.
  • The ideal depth is between 59.5 and 62.9 percent.
7.24 X 7.17 X 5.33mm

Diamond Measurements:

  • Diamond measurements are in millimeters
  • Typically displayed length by width by height
Girdle Maximum:

Diamond Girdle Maximum:

  • The girdle of a Diamond describes the outer edge and division between the crown and pavilion of a polished diamond.
  • The diameter of a diamond can be found by measuring opposite sides of a diamond girdle using a Leveridge gauge, or calliper gauge.
  • Under the microscope, the girdle of a diamond can vary in appearance.
Crown Height:

Diamond Crown Height:

  • When referring to the “crown height” of a diamond, we measure the height from girdle to table.
  • Correctly proportioned crown heights can ensure an ideal cut.
  • Typically, an ideal crown height is between 14 and 16 percent of the total height.
