When it comes to buying diamond jewellery the cut is important, before buying you can check what is good for you first and then go for it. Most diamond cuts do not have sharp corners, but corners that are cut off and rounded. This is because, counter to the popular myth, diamonds can be quite brittle and do chip when they bump into things at the wrong angle. So leave the glass cutting to specialized bits, because of this, the Princess cut is unique among diamonds with its squared shape and fully pointed corners. An emerald shaped diamond may be rectangular, but its corners are rounded. Its sides, or facets, are also longer than a Princess cut diamond. Emerald cuts are used for diamonds that have a high level or clarity that are not cloudy at all, because it accentuates the transparency of the stone. If the diamond is not clear, it will seem clouded, which is unappealing. Modern round cut brilliant stones are not actually round, but have 58 or 57 facets. Those that have 58 facets maintain the small, bottom facet called the culet. Those that have only 57 have omitted the culet. The Marquise cut is interesting in that it is a cut that can maximize the weight of a stone in carats, because although it can be a long and slim cut, it is highly faceted.
Marquise cut diamonds can be shaped in many different length-width ratios. The Asscher diamond cut is related to the emerald cut, save that instead of being rectangular, it is square. When it is viewed top-down, the cut looks a lot like a spider web does. It is said that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but you need to be careful when you buy them.
