Full Cut Diamonds Vs. Single Cut Diamonds

The cut of a diamond greatly impacts the sparkle, brilliance, and beauty of a diamond, making it one of the biggest factors in determining the price of a diamond. Round diamonds are usually cut single or full. Diamonds that are not round, come in a variety of different shapes called ‘fancy cuts’ and have a varying number of facets. The single cut and full cut in round diamonds refer to the faceting of the diamond, especially in smaller sizes that are most often used as accents in engagement rings or in fine fashion jewelry that do not have center stones. The different characteristics of each cut affect the price of the diamond jewelry you are looking to purchase.
