Kadri Janan. Diamonds. August 18th , 2017.
Another aspect that enhances the look of the glamorous stone is the setting. We all know that the diamond is set in a hard metal band, but the way it is set makes all the difference to its countless admirers, including you and me. The setting is like an individual style statement, and represents the buyer's taste and personality while enhancing the beauty of the stone, which is why it needs to be selected carefully.
Mixed Cut: 'Mixed cuts' are adopted to maintain the original weight of the gemstone and its dimensions. Also referred to as the 'brilliant cut' and the 'pavilion cut', a mixed cut is commercially extremely popular, due to its characteristic cross pattern and crescent-shaped facets.
Princess cut diamonds were created in the 1960s. In terms of popularity, they rank second in the world after the round brilliant cut. The shape of the face of the princess diamond is square, while the side shape appears like an inverted pyramid. If the quality needs to be assessed, always look for the sparkling aspects in the diamond which produce a dazzling effect. Princess cuts have more glittering facets (usually more than 58) than a round cut.
These diamonds require extra care. As the dome of the diamond protrudes, it is possible that it can get damaged or chipped along the facet points, which are the most delicate points of the diamond. The setting of rose cut diamonds is very delicate, and needs careful handling. Usually the settings used for these diamonds are prong, bezel, and flush. Above all, most of these diamonds are part of antique jewelry, which anyway need to be maintained with caution.
