Cut quality is the factor that fuels a diamond’s fire, sparkle, and brilliance. The allure and beauty of a particular diamond depends more on cut quality than anything else. The quality of the cut is crucial to the diamond's final beauty and value. A well-cut diamond will appear very brilliant and fiery, while a poorly cut diamond can appear dark and lifeless, regardless of its color or clarity. Therefore we recommend you to get the best possible cut within your budget. GIA has created a cut scale ranging from Excellent (ideal) to poor for standard round brilliant cut diamonds.

At HONN Fine Jewelry we offer cut grades from Good to Excellent.
