The ‘cut’ of a diamond is not just the shape of diamonds as many thought. When a normal person talks about a cut diamond, “Princess” or “Round” means they are talking about the shape of the diamond. However, in the technical term, diamond cut is the ability to add more surface to the cutter’s diamond to achieve the maximum diamond size and illumination.
The beauty of the diamond lies in the millions of glittering reflections reflected by the light. This beauty can be reduced or honed by the skill of cutting diamonds. No measure or aspect determines how well-cut diamonds are. It is the set of dimensions that determine how successful a diamond is.
Find out about Width and Depth
Basically, the width and depth of the diamond determine the level of light entering and which light reflects in which direction. An ideal cut diamond is a cut diamond so that the maximum light enters the diamond and then disperses back from the top of the diamond.

It is also important to understand that the width and depth of the diamond determines much to the quality of its cut, but these two factors are not unique. Here are some other important dimensions.
Diameter: The width of the diamond is measured in a ring.
Surface: This is the largest edge or face of the diamond – in most cases called the top edge, flat edge.
Peak: Half the top of the diamond. Usually measured from the surface to the belt.
Belt: This is the narrow edge between the top and the bottom. In general it is the largest diameter of a stone.
The back of the jewelry: This is the bottom of the tiny bottom or the tip of the diamond. Ideally, the back of the jewelry should be small enough to not see the back of the eye.
Depth: The total height of the diamond measured from the back attached to the jewel to the surface.
