weight over most other considerations and are considered better value for money.
This diamond is generally a diamond that has been cut too deep or too shallow. When
this occurs the diamond will lose significant amounts of light. A major benefit
of this type of diamond is the price. A diamond that is a poor cut will be significantly
lower in price than any other cut grade.
Polish & Symmetry
Polish refers to the smoothness of a diamond's facets while symmetry refers to the
alignment of its facets. When the polish grade is poor the diamond may appear dull
and dark with a blurred sparkle. When the symmetry is poor the light which travels
through the diamond is misdirected, resulting in dulled brilliance. A diamond with
excellent polish and symmetry grades is rarer to find and is thus more valuable.
When a diamond is well-cut, light enters through the table and travels to the pavilion
where it reflects from one side to the other before reflecting back out of the diamond
through the table and to the observer's eye. This light is the brilliance and it's
this flashing, fiery effect that makes diamonds so mesmerizing.
