The ideal cut is called just that, an "ideal cut". This means that a diamond will be shaped to the optimum proportions for maximum brilliance. To realize an ideal cut, however, the cutter must adhere to a series of exacting tolerances. To achieve this, much of the rough diamond may have to be cut away. For these reasons, ideal cut is the exception, rather than the rule. In fact, less than 1% of all diamonds cut are cut to ideal proportions for maximum brilliance. At Bennett's, we evaluate the cut of every diamond we buy by using a precise millimeter gauge which evaluates width, depth, crown height, and pavilion depth.

Cutting and polishing a diamond can take anywhere from several hours to several months, depending on the stone, and can reduce the weight of the rough diamond by more than 50%. An average of 250 tons of ore must be mined and processed to produce a one carat diamond (which is only 1/142 of an ounce).
