A Summarized Introduction of Diamond Cuts

Raw diamonds are found in all shapes and sizes and in natural state they don’t sparkle as with some engineering on them.

Cuts are applied on the diamond to explore obscure characteristic of diamonds, jewelers across the world were conscious about this and they realized it in 1400s.

They were busy in exploring about the edged shape of the stone and found that it has eight sides and they first started polishing stones to give it beautiful outlook. In the current era these polishing techniques have names of cuts.

Jewelers of that era exerted more energy to improve the point of cut in next ten years. They started work on the upper surface and bottom surface of the diamond, and gave the shape of table to the upper edge and addition of culet to bottom edge saved it from cracking.

In 16th and 17th century jewelers took forward step and did experiment in angular cutting of the diamonds. At that time a diamond with triangular facets were introduced in the market to do experiment of radiating pattern and later on 33 cuts were applied on the crown of the diamond that became popular in Italy.

All these old cuts delivered a strong foundation to the European cuts of 1800s. Then European jewelers applied 58 cuts on the diamond with smaller table and larger culet with the extended depth.

As in the 20th century, technology was too advance, new technical tools (small saws ) for cutting the diamonds were available in the market. Too much work was done to study the old cuts and how much light they used to reflect and evaluation of fire was the main task performed as it is the main cause for dispersion of light in all rainbow colors.
