    to the measurement from table to culet Another important related term is Diamond Depth Percentage It is calculated by simply dividing the depth of the stone by its diameter at its widest point The depth percentage of a diamond affects its appearance in a number of manners First of all it influences the brilliance of the stone If the diamond depth percentage is low light will not reflect off it as well as it would reflect off a diamond with a higher depth percentage and it will have less shine The ideal diamond depth percentage falls between 58 60 Of course this is only one feature out of several which affect a diamond s brilliance In addition if size matters to you keep in mind that a deep diamond may appear larger than a diamond of the same carat weight which is not as deep A Diamond s Polish While the polish of a diamond does not influence its value it affects its appearance to a great extent It determines how well light will pass through the stone and thus it has a direct influence on its shine The best polish levels of a diamond are referred to as Good Very Good and Excellent Diamonds with polish levels rated Poor to Extremely Poor possess polish lines which cloud up the diamonds facets and the light within them is reduced respectively Make sure your diamond is properly polished before making a purchase The difference a thorough polish can make in a stone s brilliance is astounding A Diamond s Table Percentage The table of a diamond is the flat facet on the top of the stone Table Percentage refers to the ratio of the table width to the total diameter of the diamond and has a significant effect on the brilliance and fire of the diamond For the popular round diamond cut the ideal table size is 53 of the diamond s total width Elongated diamonds usually fetch a far lower price than stones with a greater table size which possess the same carat weight because their small tables reduce their shine considerably as it is a critical reflector of light Other diamond cuts have different ideal table sizes Emerald radiant and princess cuts should have a table size ranging from 75 80 of the stone s total width In other cuts the table size should fall between 53 58 for maximum brilliance and fire A Diamond s Symmetry The symmetry of a diamond affects the stone s brilliance and value The GIA s symmetry levels range from Extremely Poor to Excellent Ideally when purchasing a diamond you should make sure its symmetry rate falls between Good and Excellent These levels should be verified on the GIA certificate as they are very difficult to determine with the naked eye A stone s symmetry is rated based on the number and shape of its facets the shape of its girdle and the positioning of its table and culet When a diamond s

  • Ring Setting Types , Solitaire, Side Stone and Pave Settings - New Zealand
    Similar to the channel setting the bar setting works particularly well with circular bands and offers a contemporary look for your diamond engagement ring Bezel Setting In a bezel setting diamonds or gemstones are held in place by a rim or collar that encircles the sides of the stone and extends just slightly above it This setting gives the impression of a smooth surface and can fit any shape stone This might be a good setting for you if you are looking to hide chips or other imperfections in your diamonds or gemstones The bezel setting is very secure and is ideal for people with an active lifestyle Channel Setting The channel setting inserts diamonds or other gemstones into a channel within the ring The stones run in a fluid line one after the other which creates a flawless smooth look with no metal separating the set stones The channel setting is particularly popular for men s wedding bands It is very secure and works well with round diamonds Half Bezel Setting Similar to the bezel setting the half bezel setting also has a metal rim or collar that encircles the stone However in the half bezel setting the rim only surrounds a portion of the stone exposing the other sides of the diamond or gemstone This is a secure setting and allows for more of the stone to be exposed and appreciated The half bezel setting works well with solitaire diamonds Invisible Setting This modern setting involves placing stones very closely together with a metal setting concealed beneath Giving the appearance that the row of stones runs uninterrupted the invisible setting is an excellent way to show off the intensity or colour of your diamonds or gemstones Pavé Setting In this classic setting the diamonds are fit into small pre fashioned holes and set almost level to the surface of the ring These diamonds are frequently secured with tiny metal beads The pavé setting gives the impression that the diamonds or gemstones have been paved which is how the setting got its name Some say that pavé set stones appear bigger than they actually are Prong Setting The prong setting is the most common type of setting and involves two or more metal claws called prongs The diamond or gemstone is grasped by projecting metal prongs that form a base The tips of the prongs are bent so they rest just over the face of the stone holding it firmly in place The prong setting is particularly popular with diamond solitaire engagement rings This type of setting exposes nearly all of the diamond to light creating a brilliant and lustrous look This is a secure setting and holds even the most fragile of stones Tension Setting This unique setting holds the centerstone in place between the sides of a metal band A compression spring within the band suspends the diamond or gemstonestone and gives the impression that the diamond is floating The tension setting is only used for hard
