Further information The cut of a diamond is its only characteristic engineered by man. The cut of a diamond relates to the proportions and finish of its facets. How a rough diamond is cut will affect all the other properties of the diamond, its brilliance, its fire and its scintillation. Since the invention of the round brilliant cut at around the turn of the 20th century, there is only two cuts, the round brilliant and then all others, some call these others fancy cuts. The surfaces which are cut flat are known as facets. The large centre facet is called the table and the pointed bit at the bottom is the culet. The circumference around a round cut diamond is known as the girdle.
