Diamond cuts are important in the overall design of engagement rings. It is this C of the 4 Cs (Clarity, Color, Cut and Carat) that most women focus on when picking out their ring. Well, of course, they usually want a lot of carats also, but that is another matter! Here are some of the basic diamond cuts that you’ll see offered at Ben David Jewelers in Danville, VA.

Diamond Cuts

The purpose of diamond cuts is more than just an attractive shape. The cut of the diamond releases light. The better the cut and more facets there are then the better it is at reflecting light back to the eye. This is that fabulous sparkle that the diamond has. These are the most popular diamond cuts that you’ll see because of their brilliance in a ring setting.

The Oval cut of diamond is also very brilliant, like the Round Brilliant. However, it has the advantage of being elongated, so this makes the diamond appear much larger even though it is the same carat weight as the Round Brilliant.
