Anatomy Of a Diamond Explained
Diamonds can be cut into many different shapes and sizes. The final cut of a diamond is very important as it contributes to the overall brilliance. The main anatomy of a diamond consists of the girdle, table width, crown, pavilion and culet. Please review the diagram below for reference. The cut is very important as it has a significant outcome in respect to the reflective qualities of the diamond. If a diamond is perfectly cut, light from all sides are bent towards the centre of the stone and are then reflected back towards the crown and create a rainbow spectrum.
