GIA Certified Diamond Cuts in Downtown Milwaukee

The quality and grade of a GIA graded diamond is down to more than just the shape of the diamond. The cut of a diamond determines its ability to transmit light and sparkle brilliantly. Incredible precision and skill of diamond cutters is required to properly form the proportions, symmetry and polish of a diamond for a magnificent return of light.

The cut of a diamond is the most important of the 4 C’s of a diamond. It determines the brilliance and shine of a diamond, making it the most complex of the 4 C’s to analyze as well. The GIA diamond cut grading scale ranges from excellent to poor. How the diamond interacts with light to create desirable effects will determine its grade, such as:

  • Fire – Colorful flashes of light that creates an array of rainbow colors that disperse under light.
  • Brightness – Also referred to as brilliance, brightness refers to the amount of white light the diamond reflects back to the eye.
  • Scintillation – Refers to the sparkles the diamond produces when in motion.

Among other considerations, diamond shape can also have an effect on the GIA diamond cut grading scale.
