Why are Diamonds So Bright?

13 June 2017 / Blog

Ever wondered exactly what makes a diamond shine?

The truth is, diamonds don’t shine much as they do reflect.

The key to making a diamond shine impressively is all in the cut: a good diamond cutter knows how to maximize the reflection that a diamond produces by creating the perfect dimensions. Cuts can be ranked relatively objectively once they are completed, and diamonds are given a ranking on a scale ranging from excellent, to very good, to good, to fair, to poor. The higher rank your diamond is given, the more it is worth, and the more it will shine.
