THE 4 C'S OF GEMSTONES
Cut refers to the proportions of symmetry of the gemstone, and not its shape.
Gemstones are ranked according to the precision of the cut. A well-cut gemstone is symmetrical, it appears balanced and its facets reflect light evenly, providing maximum brilliance.
The cut affects the intensity of a gemstone’s color, because it determines how much light can enter the gemstone.
