When faceting, a diamond loses 40-60% of its own weight. During processing, the jeweler covers the stone with numerous flat surfaces - facets. The classic and most common cut is 56 facets. It fully reveals the beauty of the stone thanks to the optimal combination of brilliance and "play" of light.

A well-executed cut significantly increases the value of the stone, and the wrong one can "kill" it.

Common facets:

  • round facets. The most popular (over 90% of products) and the most expensive. Such a diamond can reflect all the light falling on it;
  • fancy facets: "marquis", "heart", "pear";
  • rectangular "baguette" and rectangular with cut corners of the "emerald" facets.

Each facet is attractive in its own way. When choosing it, the jeweler takes into account the size of the stone, the shape of the future product, and the wishes of the customer.

A cut diamond consists of the following parts:

  • platform - upper edge;
  • girdle - a belt dividing a diamond into upper and lower parts;
  • crown - the upper part of the diamond between the platform and the girdle;
  • pavilion - the lower part of the diamond between the girdle and culet;
  • culet - the point of convergence of the edges of the bottom.
