Plantation Residents Understand Ideal Diamond Cuts

Most trained gemologists will agree that an “ideal diamond” closely matches the model by Marcel Tolkowsky. Tolkowsky, generally acknowledged as the father of the round “brilliant diamond cut,” was a member of a Belgian diamond-cutting family and was educated as an engineer. In 1919 Tolkowsky published the specifications of the American Standard (a.k.a. the American Ideal CutTolkowsky cut, or Tolkowsky Brilliant, which remains the diamond-cutting benchmark in North America.

Tolkowsky Ideal Diamond Cut Specification

1 Can the average individual tell the difference between an ideal cut and a poor cut?  A well-cut diamond essentially gathers light and reflects most of that light back through the table and crown.  Poor diamond cuts lack strong brilliance, while an ideal cut is extremely brilliant and reflective.  Trained professional instantly know the difference. Ideal cut diamonds are always on the high end of the price scale while poor cuts are at the bottom.  While the average person cannot tell the difference between an ideal diamond and a poorly cut diamond, they do experience the difference when they see the price tag of each.

There are diamond connoisseurs who want mathematical precision of the finest cut available and are willing to pay handsomely for it; however, most people buy diamonds for emotional reasons. Many beautiful diamonds with amazing brilliance fall below ideal cut formulas. When buying a diamond the client is the one who determines the cut and the price that is right for them.

Tips for Buying and Selling Jewelry

The most important thing about buying any diamond or gold jewelry is knowing who the jewelry dealer is, how long they have been in business and how long they WILL BE in business. Call the Better Business Bureau to see what kind of reputation they have in the community. Avoid buying at a gem show or other weekend or trade-show.

The jewelry dealers at these shows are not part of your community and have less at stake than a local jeweler whose business depends on word of mouth referrals. The jewelry dealers at gem shows won’t experience any backlash from unhappy customers. Finally, check on-line customer reviews to see what others are saying about this particular jewelry dealer.
