What Is the Best Cut for a round Diamond?

πŸ’Ž Look out for Table and Depth πŸ’Ž

So, like I told you before, the Table is the flat surface on the top of the diamond which you can see if you keep your head diagonal to it. 😊 The larger the table, the higher the grading. Larger table will reflect more light and make it look super brilliant and fiery. 🌟 Simple!

Depth is the measurement from the top to the bottom (culet) of a diamond. You don't need to make these measurements as your engagement ring guide is supposed to help with that. 😊 This is quite an important factor as it will contribute to the overall cut of the diamond! 🀯

Ideal table % = 53 - 58

Ideal Depth % = 59 - 62.3

πŸ’Ž That One Crown Angle πŸ’Ž

I'm going to use some technical terms to stuff you with more sexier details filled knowledge potion. πŸ€ͺ Crown angle is the measured angle between the bezel facet plane and the table plane. Don't you worry to memorize it all in all! πŸ˜… Just remember that crown angle is an important aspect when getting a diamond. Plus, you can tell her for my princess, this crown angle fits perfect.

Ideal Crown Angle = 34 - 34.9

πŸ’Ž Behold The Pavilion Depth πŸ’Ž

Pavilion depth is also another add-on he-is-sexy-and-he-knows-it-all-all content fro our knowledge potion! 😊 It is the distance from the girdle to the cutlet. 🌟 Just remember that it does play an important part in the sparkle of a diamond - don't get a diamond that's too shallow as the light won't be reflected. 😊

Ideal Pavilion Depth = 42.8 - 43.2

πŸ’Ž The Theory of Girdle πŸ’Ž

Girdle isn't really that important but still something that I will mention. It is the thin perimeter a diamond has which will make contact with the setting that you choose!Β 

Ideal Girdle = Thin to Slightly Thick

πŸ’Ž The Cutlet Reality πŸ’Ž

Finally, Cutlet is something that might make sense to you! πŸ˜… It is the pointy edge on the bottom of the diamond. It won't be seen once the diamond is fixed into the setting. It's not a really important aspect as it won't be seen, at all.Β  But still, you can just randomly slip in how this cutlet fits perfect with everything the ring has.

Ideal Cutlet = None or very small, small

πŸ’Ž Final Takeaway πŸ’Ž
