Diamonds are so spectacular in their vibrancy and shine that it can be easy to overlook the craftsmanship in cutting and designing diamonds for fine jewellery. Not to mention the petite size of diamonds that can make it even more difficult to define the meticulous cuts made to create the reflections of light we appreciate. At Arman’s Fine Jewellery in Sydney we have an intimate appreciation for diamond cuts and the significance each cut can bring to unique fine jewellery. We encourage our clients during our custom design consultations to consider the contribution certain diamond cuts can bring to their special piece.
In order to make your beautiful jewellery shine its brightest it is crucial to pick a cut that suits you. The type of cut will actually determine how bright your diamond will shine, as a diamond cut is comprised of many angular and flat surfaces that reflect light through the diamond, giving them their shine and vibrancy. The brighter the diamond, the more intricate the cuts are likely to be. There are a variety of cuts to choose from that will determine the shine of your diamond and its shape. At Arman’s Fine Jewellery we have used a variety of diamond cuts in our pieces, including:
Every diamond has unique cuts that determine its value, beauty and setting. These cuts are created with meticulous skill and concentration to ensure that every surface is level, polished and will best reflect light. Our team of Master Jewellers source the best diamond cuts from some of the finest and ethically sound sources from around the world.
Recently we have received a peaked interest in the round brilliant cut and the cushion cut diamond, from our clients that prefer traditional cut diamonds. Round cuts are by far one of the most popular cuts in the fine jewellery profession, with over 75% of diamonds sold being of the round brilliant variety. Its popularity is due to its ability to reflect light. A cushion cut diamond combines a square cut with rounded corners, much like a ‘cushion’. This classic cut has been around for almost 200 years, and for the first century of its existence it was the most popular diamond shape.
Diamonds are surprisingly versatile in their ability to be cut. Throughout history many fine craftsmen have tested the limits and created uniquely shaped diamond cuts. Today, there are several very popular diamond cut types that are all available at Arman’s Fine Jewellery in Sydney on request.
