Diamond is composed of pure carbon minerals and is derived from Earth’s crust. It is known as the hardest occurring substance in nature. Diamond gemstone is made after cutting it into shape from raw diamond. It is the only gem in the world that is made of a single element – carbon which comprises 99.95% carbon and 0.05% comprises other trace elements. Most diamonds have a bit of hues of yellow or brown colour but when it is polished, cut and shaped into gemstone, you can find a variety of colours in them. 


Different cuts of this precious stone: -


The cuts define the diamond’s quality and brilliance. This factor determines the sparkle and shine of the stone. The proportion, technicalities and details of the cuts make the diamond what it is. In simpler terms, it is related to the quality of the pattern and arrangement of the diamond stone. Diamond cuts are graded from ‘Excellent’ at the top to ‘Poor’ at the bottom regarding the quality.

1.Excellent – The diamond of excellent quality grade has maximum brilliance and shine. 

2. Very good – These diamonds can sometimes be good to buy if you are ready to compromise a little on brilliance and shine. 

3. Good, Fair and Poor – This category of diamonds has very little brilliance and shine. 

Moreover, the cuts of a diamond are determined by its polish and symmetry. The cuts are made by gauging the proportion of depth, table and angles of the stone.
