#5. Know Your Cuts
The cut of a diamond is not, as some think, the common diamond terms “princess,” “round,” etc. Those are diamond shapes and have nothing to do with the diamond’s quality. The shape will be a matter of personal preference to your bride. According to BlueNile.com, a popular Web site for diamond jewelry, the cut is a diamond’s most important characteristic, affecting the sparkle. If the diamond is cut in the proper proportions, light will return out the top of the diamond, or sparkle. If the cut is too shallow, the light leaks out of the bottom. If the cut is too deep, the light goes out the side. Your goal is that she blind everyone in her path with her ring. This will disorient her enemies and keep male suitors from getting too near.
