The shape of the stone refers to whether the stone is a round cut diamond, princess cut diamond, cushion cut etc. A diamond’s cut is actually an assessment of the skill of the artisan who plans, maps and hand cuts the facets on each individual diamond which is the most important factor in determining its quality in terms of fire, brilliance, and scintillation.
