Gemstones and Cut

Posted by Daily Jewelry On April - 13 - 2012

Gemstones:  Considering Cut
When buying a colored gemstone, you should take note of the cut, because this is what will showcase your gem, and make it sparkle. Basically, the cut is the dressing for your gem. Cut beautifully, a gem will attract a lot more attention. Cut poorly, a gem will just appear ho-hum although it may really be a lovely gem all in all. Just like a suit on a person, the right cut helps to dress up the stone and bring out its positives, while diminishing its negatives or flaws. So be careful to consider a gem with a wonderful cut. If you are unsure of what constitutes a lovely cut even after this article, your jeweler can help guide the way.

What Makes a Great Cut
Be careful when considering the color of your gemstone along with its cut, as you may find that those gems with a deeper color may actually benefit for a shallow cut (which is usually the opposite of what we tell you when shopping for colorless diamonds). The reason for this is the deep color of the stone may actually benefit from absorbing more light thus illuminating the jewel more. Also, take the time to examine the facets of your gem. Has it been cut to look symmetrical or does it look a bit off? Symmetry is very important.

For some, gemstone shopping is a bit of common sense coupled with possessing an artistic sense. Does it make that impression upon you like a painting would? If so, then your gem is doing what it should be doing — wowing you, and that’s good!

    True. The diamond cut is actually the most important gauge of the quality of a diamond. Even if a diamond has a good clarity and color, a bad cut will only spoil its as you say ‘wowing’ beauty!
