A diamond's table is the largest facet of the stone, comprising the flat surface on the top.
This is the top portion of the diamond, located above the girdle and extending below the table.
Forming the outer edge of the diamond, this is where the crown and the pavilion meet and is the widest part of a diamond.
Located at the bottom of the diamond, the pavilion bridges the girdle and the culet and form at the bottom (culet).
The smallest facet of a diamond, the culet is located at the very bottom of the stone.
A diamond’s brilliance is largely determined by its cut. An expertly-cut diamond with perfectly symmetrical and aligned facets will reflect light beautifully, leading to unrivalled brilliance.
Diamonds exist on a scale of many different shades, ranging from brilliant white to light yellow. Diamonds are graded from D (colourless) to Z (light yellow)
Every diamond is unique. In the process of a diamond’s natural formation, other minerals or crystals might be present, which can disrupt the refraction of light through the stone.
Carats are the measure of weight for all diamonds. The higher the carat weight, the higher the value. But ‘small and perfectly formed’ is also a good rule of thumb: a better quality of diamond is always best, whatever the weight.
