There are four “Cs” to consider when you are buying a diamond. Some are more important than others and it’s essential to understand why. According to renowned diamond expert Brian Gavin, of the internationally recognized brand Brian Gavin Diamonds, cut is the most important “C” to consider when purchasing a diamond.
Diamonds with a well-balanced cut are simply the best choice and often those diamonds will have the greatest “wow” factor. Brian Gavin says: ‘’A well-cut and polished diamond with precise symmetry will have more fire and brilliance and give the impression that it is larger than a stone of equal weight but with a lesser cut. “Since cut stands for performance, it greatly influences the other three Cs. Consumers today want reassurance that the diamond ring on their finger or the diamond stud in their ear is not only finely manufactured but is also perfectly symmetrical. After cut, the proportions or angles of the diamond are the next important factor to consider. You may have heard of the term “Hearts and Arrow,” which is the greatest indicator of diamond cut quality. Brian Gavin told me that the perfectly shaped hearts are formed when the main pavilion facets are cut at the correct angles and polished with such perfection that their reflection results in a perfect heart pattern. “Once the perfect heart pattern has been attained, the perfect arrow pattern in the crown results,” said Gavin.
While other diamond cutters seem focused on cutting diamonds to retain the maximum amount of carat weight, Brian Gavin is intent that every diamond be precisely cut to a degree of craftsmanship that is unattainable anywhere else. If you want to ensure maximum sparkle factor, go with the Hearts and Arrows because it is considered the pinnacle of cut.
