Many of us think that cut is just the shape of the diamond. Although it is related to the shape of a diamond, it is something more than that. The cut should always be given the top priority while buying a diamond. A wrong cut can affect up to 50% of the quality, and even the clarity and the color of the diamond. If a diamond has the best color and clarity, but not a good cut, it won't look beautiful. Given below is brief information on the many types of diamond cuts.
Mr. Frederick Wells received a prize money of 3500 pounds for the discovery of the world's largest diamond. It was named Cullinan after Mr. Thomas Cullinan, the mine owner. The Transvaal government bought the diamond for 1,50,000 pounds. The then Prime Minister of Transvaal government was Louis Botha. He came up with a suggestion of gifting the Cullinan diamond to King Edward VII, which was presented to the king on 9th November, 1907, on the eve of his 66th birthday.
Most of the diamonds appear to be colorless on the surface. Although, if one looks carefully, they may have undertones of some other colors like yellow and brown. This usually takes place when other elements get integrated into their atomic structure, when diamonds are getting formed. Thus, when it comes to clear diamonds, the more colorless they are, the higher is their grading and thus, the more expensive and rare they are considered to be. The grading of the clear diamonds starts from D, E, F and goes up to S-Z, with D being the most clear, rare and expensive. However, this grading does not work in case of the colored diamonds. They are completely different from the clear diamonds and in fact, come in well-defined "fancy" colors, like, blue, red, yellow, orange, green, purple and pink. These diamonds are considered rarer than rare and are thus, priced much higher than any clear diamond.
The fact that these diamonds are being offered by very few diamond sellers, makes it a rare and unique cut, which stands out in the crowd with differently shaped gemstones.
